If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally transform one million realities.

Maya Angelou, poet

Ambition is not what a man would do, but what a man does, for ambition without action is fantasy.

Bryant H. McGill, poet

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.

Dr. Seuss, author

Real love is the love that sometimes arises after sensual pleasure: if it does, it is immortal; the other kind inevitably goes stale, for it lies in mere fantasy.

Giacomo Casanova, celebrity

Fantasy, if it's really convincing, can't become dated, for the simple reason that it represents a flight into a dimension that lies beyond the reach of time.

Walt Disney, cartoonist

One's real life is so often the life that one does not lead.

Oscar Wilde, dramatist

To be matter-of-fact about the world is to blunder into fantasy - and dull fantasy at that, as the real world is strange and wonderful.

Robert A. Heinlein, writer

All cartoon characters and fables must be exaggeration, caricatures. It is the very nature of fantasy and fable.

Walt Disney, cartoonist

I have too many fantasies to be a housewife. I guess I am a fantasy.

Marilyn Monroe, actress

Fantasy is toxic: the private cruelty and the world war both have their start in the heated brain.

Elizabeth Bowen, novelist

Fantasy, abandoned by reason, produces impossible monsters; united with it, she is the mother of the arts and the origin of marvels.

Francisco de Goya, artist

Religion is doing; a man does not merely think his religion or feel it, he "lives" his religion as much as he is able, otherwise it is not religion but fantasy or philosophy.

G. I. Gurdjieff, educator

I've always said fantasy is sort of 'stealth philosophy'.

Terry Goodkind, writer

When a fantasy turns you on, you're obligated to God and nature to start doing it right away.

Stewart Brand, author

I think what a lot of action movies lose these days, especially the ones that deal with fantasy, is you stop caring at some point because you've lost human scale.

Harrison Ford, actor

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.

Dr. Seuss, author

One of the best things about folklore and fairy tales is that the best fantasy is what you find right around the corner, in this world. That's where the old stuff came from.

Terri Windling, artist

I think the more stressful our times get, the more we look for fantasy escapes.

Jeri Ryan, actress

I have a fantasy where Ted Turner is elected President but refuses because he doesn't want to give up power.

Arthur C. Clarke, writer

Who would you be but who you are?

Terry Brooks, writer

Fantasy is one of the soul's brighter porcelains.

Pat Conroy, author

I don't have this fantasy about marriage anymore. Everyone says it takes hard work. Well, it kind of does - and I'm much more pragmatic about romance than I used to be.

Jennifer Garner, actress

But fantasy kills imagination, pornography is death to art.

Iris Murdoch, author

Those Dutchmen had hardly any imagination or fantasy, but their good taste and their scientific knowledge of composition were enormous.

Vincent Van Gogh, painter

Fairies have to be one thing or the other, because being so small they unfortunately have room for one feeling only at a time.

J.M. Barrie,

I've never seen myself as a fantasy writer - ever.

Jonathan Carroll, author

Say there's a white kid who lives in a nice home, goes to an all-white school, and is pretty much having everything handed to him on a platter - for him to pick up a rap tape is incredible to me, because what that's saying is that he's living a fantasy life of rebellion.

Eminem, rapper

When a fantasy turns you on, you're obligated to God and nature to start doing it - right away.

Stewart Brand, author

I have met some highly intelligent believers, but history has no record to say that [s]he knew or understood the mind of god. Yet this is precisely the qualification which the godly must claim—so modestly and so humbly—to possess. It is time to withdraw our 'respect' from such fantastic claims, all of them aimed at the exertion of power over other humans in the real and material world.

Christopher Hitchens, author

All that political stuff Delano was doing. Me, I've gone off the top, into total fantasy.

Eddie Campbell, artist

I try to stay focused on my life and do try not to be brought into the Hollywood fantasy.

Jennifer Connelly, actress

It's my job, to create a fantasy.

Anne Heche, actress

I have claimed that Escape is one of the main functions of fairy-stories, and since I do not disapprove of them, it is plain that I do not accept the tone of scorn or pity with which 'Escape' is now so often used. Why should a man be scorned if, finding himself in prison, he tries to get out and go home? Or if he cannot do so, he thinks and talks about other topics than jailers and prison-walls?

J. R. R. Tolkien, novelist

I have an airplane hangar with 17 cars in it. That's no joke. I have a 'half pipe' in there, too - you know, like a big ramp, where I skateboard. It's awesome. It's the ultimate fantasy.

Paul Walker, actor

The mind can make substance, and people planets of its own with beings brighter than have been, and give a breath to forms which can outlive all flesh.

Lord Byron, poet

Write me a creature that thinks as well as a man or better than a man, but not like a man.

John W. Campbell, writer

About half my designs are controlled fantasy, 15 percent are total madness and the rest are bread-and-butter designs.

Manolo Blahnik, designer

I'm always astonished by a forest. It makes me realise that the fantasy of nature is much larger than my own fantasy. I still have things to learn.

Gunter Grass, author

Vampires are sexy to a woman perhaps because the fantasy is similar to that of the man on the white horse sweeping her off to paradise.

Frank Langella, actor

Beyond that, I seem to be compelled to write science fiction, rather than fantasy or mysteries or some other genre more likely to climb onto bestseller lists even though I enjoy reading a wide variety of literature, both fiction and nonfiction.

Joan D. Vinge, author

Since fantasy isn't about technology, the accelleration has no impact at all. But it's changed the lives of fantasy writers and editors. I get to live in England and work for a New York publisher!

Terri Windling, artist

There have been a number of us working very, very hard to bring myth and fairy tales into public consciousness, through fantasy literature and other media. I hope we're succeeding in some small way.

Terri Windling, artist

I think I'll give it up, the fantasy is over, I wanted to play Spiderman, Peter Parker.

George Eads, actor

I think it's very much a men's thing to be able to have that fantasy to kill the beast.

Izabella Scorupco, actress

For many years I had heard about an underworld consisting of people who act out a vampire fantasy while I was living in New York. Fortunately for me there are also several books on the phenomena.

James Patterson, author

The funny thing is all these school shootings that we have, always happen in very religious communities. Maybe it's because the centre of their lives is a big fat nothing and it's just a fantasy and there's nothing there. I think maybe that might have something to do with it.

Matthew Bright, director

In fact, if you have a crime committed against you, and you go to have hypnosis, you can't testify. Because there's no way to test what is real, what's fact, what's fantasy.

Betty Hill, celebrity

If the general opinion is pessimistic, fantasy is going to hold its own.

David Eddings, author

I'm not constrained by being a genre writer. Any story I can imagine, I can cast as a fantasy novel and probably get it published.

Lynn Abbey, author

I think one of things is that all fantasy it seems to me works the way your brain basically works. This is perhaps a startling concept, but I think it's true.

Diana Wynne Jones, writer

Fantasy for me as a kid was real, and I had a fantasy about what life was, whether it was sort of wicked and dire, or wholly normal, or whatever. Anything really close to home is not, it seems to me, what a good book should be about.

Diana Wynne Jones, writer

It seems to me that humour is everybody's way of keeping sane and standing off from the situations so that they can see it intellectually, as well as emotionally, and I don't know whether you've noticed, but if somebody tells a joke, it's nearly always a mini fantasy.

Diana Wynne Jones, writer

Heaven knows, I've exposed myself in my novels through the use of fantasy and imagination... now my new book is about what really happened to me... not my heroines.

Judith Krantz, novelist

Fantasy is the only canvas large enough for me to paint on.

Terry Brooks, writer

Every person should have their escape route planned. I think everyone has an apocalypse fantasy, what would I do in the event of the end of the world, and we just basically - me and Nick - said what would we do, where would we head?

Simon Pegg, comedian

I usually do one con a year as a GoH and try to make the World Fantasy Convention for business purposes. Last year I went to a worldcon for the first time in two decades. I may go again this year.

Alan Dean Foster, author

Yeah, and I went straight into a fantasy world. Just stepped straight into the abyss. You know, I was gone and kids used to walk past my front room, cause I lived on the green.

Eric Clapton, musician

In my fantasy I was always the savior. I would come to Peanuts land and save everybody. Charlie Brown would fall madly in love with me. Peppermint Patty was so jealous.

Alicia Witt, actress

I like working closely with artists. I think that's very important in fantasy and science fiction - the visual aspect of the worlds and the characters.

Margaret Weis, writer

In Poland, my audience is all women between 18 and 30. At U.S. conventions, you have the fantasy and science fiction crowd. At Harvard you have an entirely different audience. It's so schizophrenic.

Jonathan Carroll, author

I think sex is very interesting for most people, but I'm interested in sex as a way of communication, I'm not that interested in the fantasy version of a sex scene.

Maggie Gyllenhaal, actress

But I never let a fantasy get away, because I always stop to analyze it.

Shelley Duvall, actress

Wuxia is a fantasy world exists in everyone's mind.

Zhang Yimou, director

It's my sick fantasy to be a Cosmo cover.

Deana Carter, musician

Most of my books have been written in the form of fantasy.

Lloyd Alexander, writer

I was passionate. I found something that I loved. I could be all alone in a big old skating rink and nobody could get near me and I didn't have to talk to anybody because of my shyness. It was great. I was in my fantasy world.

Dorothy Hamill, athlete

So I was in America and I thought I'll stick around while I'm here and just see what happens. The next film I did was High Art, so I guess it started with a sort of vague idea but really just a fantasy.

Radha Mitchell, actress

I had a friend, and we always used to pretend to be twins. We had this fantasy about going to Hollywood together. We were about four.

Radha Mitchell, actress

I've had trouble being in relationships and writing. This has been a real problem for me. I don't know if it's because I'm not free to fantasize or create these fantasy things about other people.

Lucinda Williams, musician

When George Graham was there they complained, harking back to better days, but I think that's a fantasy.

Alan Hansen, athlete

I wanted to get back to my style of 20 years ago after a long period of exploring horror and fantasy themes.

Dario Argento, director

I have been a reader of Science Fiction and Fantasy for a long time, since I was 11 or 12 I think, so I understand it and I'm not at all surprised that readers of the genre might enjoy my books.

Jean M. Auel, writer

Of the two, I would think of my work as closer to Science Fiction than Fantasy.

Jean M. Auel, writer

I have heard Science Fiction and Fantasy referred to as the fiction of ideas, and I like that definition, but it's the mainstream public that chooses my books for the most part.

Jean M. Auel, writer

They shaved my head, eyebrows. This is not a sci-fi picture. It's not a fantasy picture. You're dealing with something that's supposed to be in reality. But we had a genius makeup artist.

Rick Yune, actor

I'm living out a childhood fantasy. Our house is in a historic district of a small town that I used to read about in storybooks.

Patty Duke, actress

I do have a small collection of traditional SF ideas which I've never been able to sell. I'm known as a fantasy writer and neither my agent nor my editors want to risk my brand by jumping genre.

Lynn Abbey, author

There are relatively few science fiction or fantasy books with the main character being an old person.

Elizabeth Moon, author

I love biomedical science, I love astronomy, and you can't really do much with those in a fantasy setting.

Elizabeth Moon, author

But in fantasy, you can make a complete break, and you can put people in a situation where they are confronted with things that they would not confront in the real world.

Elizabeth Moon, author

You can also make explicit certain social problems which, again, would be prejudged or not encountered at all in real life, because people have set up defenses against it. Fantasy allows you to get past defenses.

Elizabeth Moon, author

The genre of fantasy is about magic and occult characters.

Shawn Ashmore, actor

Fantasy allows you bend the world and the situation to more clearly focus on the moral aspects of what's happening. In fantasy you can distill life down to the essence of your story.

Terry Goodkind, writer

The idea of it becomes a little freaky if you're dealing with someone who has trouble differentiating between fantasy and reality, but that's a concern no matter what kind of movie you're dealing with.

Adam Arkin, actor

Writing fantasy lets me imagine a great deal more than, say, writing about alligators, and lets me write about places more distant than Florida, but I can tell you things about Florida and alligators, let you make the connection all on your own.

Terry Brooks, writer

Artificial Intelligence leaves no doubt that it wants its audiences to enter a realm of pure fantasy when it identifies one of the last remaining islands of civilization as New Jersey.

Godfried Danneels, clergyman

Is that romantic fantasy real? Um, after kids, no. Take the kids away, I don't know. Depends.

Robin Wright Penn, actress

Although it is a fantasy film, it's as real as it can be. You have to imagine that an audience will buy their ticket to a cinema and get on a first-class flight and journey to Middle Earth.

Orlando Bloom, actor

At the time of Woodstock, I was just 13, but I used to see these exotic hippy creatures and I did look on with envy. How could you not? In an ideal world, I would have loved to have been a hippy - but I might have been a bit strait-laced. It was my fantasy.

Imelda Staunton, actress

I love sci-fi and fantasy.

Amber Benson, actress

Plastic surgery and breast implants are fine for people who want that, if it makes them feel better about who they are. But, it makes these people, actors especially, fantasy figures for a fantasy world. Acting is about being real being honest.

Kate Winslet, actress

That's pretty much why I went into show business because I wanted to have a guitar and sing unaccompanied, that was like my fantasy of the perfect life.

Victoria Jackson, comedian

Fantasy is an exercise bicycle for the mind. It might not take you anywhere, but it tones up the muscles that can. Of course, I could be wrong.

Terry Pratchett, author

I've always found it easy and natural and, more importantly, necessary to articulate thoughts and feelings, and fierce emotions, through the written word. Fantasy and horror came to me when I was very young.

Kim Elizabeth,

When I write I simply follow my heart. And my flights of fantasy. It is not done with a conscious effort. I'm continually inspired and write reflexively.

Kim Elizabeth,

My imagination completely controls me, and forever feeds the fire that burns with dark red light in my heart by bringing me the best dreams. I've always had a wild imagination, a big heart and a tortured soul so I feel that dark fantasy, love and horror are in my blood.

Kim Elizabeth,

I do remember, as a child, that I always imagined, when I was maybe 6 or 7, my fantasy was that everywhere I went I was being followed by an invisible film crew.

Ben Kingsley, actor

I consider it useless and tedious to represent what exists, because nothing that exists satisfies me. Nature is ugly, and I prefer the monsters of my fancy to what is positively trivial.

Charles Baudelaire, poet

Fantasies are more than substitutes for unpleasant reality; they are also dress rehearsals, plans. All acts performed in the world begin in the imagination.

Barbara Grizzuti Harrison, writer

The dream of reason produces monsters. Imagination deserted by reason creates impossible, useless thoughts. United with reason, imagination is the mother of all art and the source of all its beauty.

Francisco Jose De Goya Y Lucientes,
