    سالها دل طلب جام جم از ما می‌کرد
    وانچه خود داشت، ز بیگانه تمنا می‌کرد

    Federico Fellini: I make Reality look like dream.

    David Lynch: I make dream look like reality. 

    Luis Buñuel: I mix reality and dreams and you can't tell which one is which. 

    Wojciech Has: F#ck reality; it's a useless piece of garbage, I DON'T NEED IT.

    Have a great day.
