W. C. Fields about Reality and Alcohol

Posted in Quote, W. C. Fields on September 17th, 2009 by Dave – 3 Comments

On the subject of reality I like this one best:

Reality is an illusion that occurs due to the lack of alcohol.

W. C. Fields

While alcoholism is far from being funny, in this one the danger of alcohol leads to a pivotal question in philosophy: What is reality? And not alone in philosophy but also in theology, psychology, brain reasearch and other sciences reality is an important subject and an unsolved problem yet.

What is your personal definition of reality? Can we ever be sure that something is real? Is alcohol a solution? What do you think?
