- Real-World References:
- ``You can't depend on your eyes when your imagination's
out of focus.'' - Mark Twain?
Closest thing I can come up with:
``The imagination of a boy is healthy, and the mature imagination of a man is
healthy; but there is a space of life between, in which the soul is in a
ferment, the character undecided, the way of life uncertain, the ambition
thick-sighted: thence proceeds mawkishness.''
- John Keats (1795-1821), Endymion, 1818.

pencil-pushing social outcast who chews you up, spits you out,
and takes away your house... or me?''
Clarissa: ``Is this a trick question?''
