„Photography is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.“

—  Alfred Stieglitz American photographer 1864 - 1946

Alfred Stieglitz, as quoted in The Real Thing: Imitation and Authenticity in American Culture, 1880-1940, M. Orvell (1989). p. 220
Variante: There is a reality — so subtle that it becomes more real than reality. That's what I'm trying to get down in photography.

„Reality, at first glance, is a simple thing: the television speaking to you now is real.“

—  Alan Moore English writer primarily known for his work in comic books 1953

What Is Reality?
Contesto: Reality, at first glance, is a simple thing: the television speaking to you now is real. Your body sunk into that chair in the approach to midnight, a clock ticking at the threshold of awareness. All the endless detail of a solid and material world surrounding you. These things exist. They can be measured with a yardstick, a voltammeter, a weighing scale. These things are real.

„We told ourselves that it didn’t matter if there was no word to cement our reality…We were the ones that made it real. And yet, the sense of otherness loomed.“

„In reality, few things are more abundantly attested in Islamic law than the permissibility of child marriage.“

—  Robert Spencer American author and blogger 1962

Frontpage Mag - Hamas-linked CAIR Rep. Arrested for Pedophilia http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/258279/hamas-linked-cair-rep-arrested-pedophilia-robert-spencer (10 June 2015)
Contesto: Islamic apologists in the West argue furiously that child marriage has nothing to do with Islam, and that the idea that Muhammad married a child is the invention of greasy Islamophobes. In reality, few things are more abundantly attested in Islamic law than the permissibility of child marriage.

„There's real poetry in the real world. Science is the poetry of reality“

—  Richard Dawkins English ethologist, evolutionary biologist and author 1941

The Enemies of Reason, "Slaves to Superstition" [1.01], 13 August 2007, timecode 00:38:16ff
The Enemies of Reason (August 2007)
Variante: Science is the poetry of reality.
Contesto: The word 'mundane' has come to mean boring and dull, and it really shouldn't. It should mean the opposite because it comes from the latin 'mundus', meaning the world, and the world is anything but dull; the world is wonderful. There's real poetry in the real world. Science is the poetry of reality.

„Some things are only real because they represent what we think. When we learn the truth and think it, the old reality is no longer real to us and loses its hold on us. The truth sets us free.“
