George MacDonald on Reflections

Why are all reflections lovelier than what we call the reality? — not so grand or so strong, it may be, but always lovelier?...There is no cheating in nature and the simple unsought feelings of the soul. There must be a truth involved in it, though we may but in part lay hold of the meaning.

George MacDonald, Phantastes, 1858, 1981 printing, p. 66, 67.
