Myths are public dreams, dreams are private myths.

Joseph Campbell, author

Myths which are believed in tend to become true.

George Orwell, author

Sometimes legends make reality, and become more useful than the facts.

Salman Rushdie, novelist

Myth is neither a lie nor a confession: it is an inflexion.

Roland Barthes, critic

In the United States there's a Puritan ethic and a mythology of success. He who is successful is good. In Latin countries, in Catholic countries, a successful person is a sinner.

Umberto Eco, novelist

Myth is an attempt to narrate a whole human experience, of which the purpose is too deep, going too deep in the blood and soul, for mental explanation or description.

D. H. Lawrence, novelist

It is a myth, not a mandate, a fable not a logic, and symbol rather than a reason by which men are moved.

Irwin Edman,

A myth is a religion in which no one any longer believes.

James Feibleman,

He said myths and mythology wasn't to give meaning to life but to give us an experience of life, an experience of vitality in being alive.

Joseph Campbell, author

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact.

Claude LeviStrauss,

Hollywood grew to be the most flourishing factory of popular mythology since the Greeks.

Alistair Cooke, journalist

That religious earnestness forever tends toward fright and hence towards brittleness and inquisition is clear enough in mythology and history.

Thomas Howard,

We read Greek and Norse mythology until it came out of our ears. And the Bible.

Penelope Lively, author

Most of the monsters... are based on some sort of mythology. Every culture and even some geographical areas have monsters and mythology that is their own.

Laurell K. Hamilton, writer

You have one big mythology in your favor: Everyone believes that you Europeans are impeccable. But I know you are jerks.

Fernando Flores, politician

Mythologies, in other words, mythologies and religions are great poems and, when recognized as such, point infallibly through things and events to the ubiquity of a

Joseph Campbell, author

It is a sure sign that a culture has reached a dead end when it is no longer intrigued by its myths.

Greil Marcus, author

You're basing your laws and your whole outlook on natural life on mythology. It won't work. That's why you have all these problems in the world. Name them: India, Pakistan, Ireland. Name them-all these problems. They're all religious problems.

Jack Kevorkian, activist

Many of us view the bible and other religious teachings as mythology.

Richard King, director

To us, basing stories on christianity is the same as basing stories on Roman mythology, Native American folklore, or unsubstantiated government conspiracies.

Richard King, director

Actually, I love mythology. When I was a kid I was obsessed with myth and I wanted to be a mythologist when I grew up. Then I realized I really just like stories.

Amber Benson, actress

The poets were not alone in sanctioning myths, for long before the poets the states and the lawmakers had sanctioned them as a useful expedient. They needed to control the people by superstitious fears, and these cannot be aroused without myths and marvels.

Mikhail Strabo,

This being so, it follows that mythology ought not to take the prominent place that is too often assigned to it in the scientific study of ancient faiths.

William Robertson Smith, scientist

Heavy pillars, carved from the rock, bear the roof. Slowly, one's eyes become accustomed to the dim light; then they can make out marvelous representations from Indian mythology carved on the walls.

Rudolf Otto, theologian

The point of mythology or myth is to point to the horizon and to point back to ourselves: This is who we are; this is where we came from; and this is where we're going. And a lot of Western society over the last hundred years - the last 50 years really - has lost that. We have become rather aimless and wandering.

J. Michael Straczynski, producer

In beauty of face no maiden ever equaled her. It was the radiance of an opium-dream - an airy and spirit-lifting vision more wildly divine than the fantasies which hovered about the slumbering souls of the daughters of Delos.

Edgar Allan Poe, writer

I walk the streets, take the train, it's real simple. Some actors create their own mythology: 'Oh, I'm so famous I can't go places, because I created this mythology that I'm so famous I can't go places.'

Samuel L. Jackson, actor

The thing about playing gods, whether you're playing Thor and Loki or Greco Roman gods or Indian gods or characters in any mythology, the reason that gods were invented was because they were basically larger versions of ourselves.

Tom Hiddleston, actor

For Mythology is the handmaid of literature; and literature is one of the best allies of virtue and promoters of happiness.

Thomas Bulfinch, writer

If no other knowledge deserves to be called useful but that which helps to enlarge our possessions or to raise our station in society, then Mythology has no claim to the appellation.

Thomas Bulfinch, writer

Thus we hope to teach mythology not as a study, but as a relaxation from study; to give our work the charm of a story-book, yet by means of it to impart a knowledge of an important branch of education.

Thomas Bulfinch, writer

Without a knowledge of mythology much of the elegant literature of our own language cannot be understood and appreciated.

Thomas Bulfinch, writer

All the great things have been denied and we live in an intricacy of new and local mythologies, political, economic, poetic, which are asserted with an ever-enlarging incoherence.

Wallace Stevens, poet

One may as well preach a respectable mythology as anything else.

Mrs. Humphrey Ward,

I'm such a geek, I know all about mythology and I don't know Marc Jacobs.

Amber Benson, actress

But, strictly speaking, this mythology was no essential part of ancient religion, for it had no sacred sanction and no binding force on the worshippers.

William Robertson Smith, scientist

Superheroes fill a gap in the pop culture psyche, similar to the role of Greek mythology. There isn't really anything else that does the job in modern terms. For me, Batman is the one that can most clearly be taken seriously.

Christopher Nolan, director

Italian cameramen grow up immersed in an awareness of light. It is part of their mythology.

Barbara Steele, actress

Of all the subjects on this planet, I think my parents would have been hard put to name one less useful than Greek mythology to securing the keys to an executive bathroom.

J. K. Rowling, novelist

Unfortunately, a lot of the concepts in the Bible are based on ancient mythology that doesn't fit the findings of science.

Clyde Tombaugh, scientist

It seems obvious to me that the notion of God has never been anything but a kind of ideal projection, a reflection upward of the human personality, and that theology never has been and never can be anything but a more and more purified mythology.

Alfred Loisy, clergyman

I love all of mythology and rules pertaining to all of the monsters, but I like to go the extra step.

Stephen Sommers, director

In all the antique religions, mythology takes the place of dogma; that is, the sacred lore of priests and people... and these stories afford the only explanation that is offered of the precepts of religion and the prescribed rules of ritual.

William Robertson Smith, scientist

Myth is the hidden part of every story, the buried part, the region that is still unexplored because there are as yet no words to enable us to get there. Myth is nourished by silence as well as by words.

Italo Calvino, journalist

There is nothing truer than myth: history, in its attempt to realize myth, distorts it, stops halfway; when history claims to have succeeded, this is nothing but humbug and mystification. Everything we dream is realizable. Reality does not have to be: it is simply what it is.

Eugene Ionesco, dramatist

The primary function of myth is to validate an existing social order. Myth enshrines conservative social values, raising tradition on a pedestal. It expresses and confirms, rather than explains or questions, the sources of cultural attitudes and values. Because myth anchors the present in the past it is a sociological charter for a future society which is an exact replica of the present one.

Ann Oakley, sociologist

Myths and legends die hard in America. We love them for the extra dimension they provide, the illusion of near-infinite possibility to erase the narrow confines of most men's reality. Weird heroes and mould-breaking champions exist as living proof to those who need it that the tyranny of the rat race is not yet final.

Hunter S. Thompson, journalist
