Perpetuating the Human Spirit

Which is more successful in sustaining the human spirit?

Illusion/fiction or reality?

Illusion is a more successful upholder of the human spirit as it protects one from the harsh truth while providing the character/person with hope and a dream or ambition to work towards, as compared to truth and reality which – although offer a pragmatic approach to living – can shatter a person’s hopes and in turn immobilize the human spirit.
