Image, Truth is the most powerful thing in the world, since even fiction
Last updated on

Truth is the most powerful thing in the world, since even fiction itself must be governed by it, and can only please by its resemblance. The appearance of reality is necessary to make any passion agreeably represented, and to be able to move others we must be moved ourselves, or at least seem to be so, upon some probable grounds.

Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 7th Earl of Shaftesbury
