About this Quote

Eugene O'Neill's quote "Obsessed by a fairy tale, we invest our lives looking for a magic door as well as a lost kingdom of peace" recommends that we are all, to some extent, captured up in our wish for some type of perfect paradise, a world that is much better, a lot more gorgeous, and also a lot more best than the one we currently inhabit.

With his words, O'Neill indicates that this wish for a better world is usually driven by the impact of fairy tales on our imaginations. We are brought up with childhood years tales and misconceptions that paint a picture of a globe that is much more magical as well as wondrous than the one in which we live. This supports our crave something much better and our yearning for a magical realm that we can get away to as well as discover tranquility in.

However, while we might be fixated on this idyllic world, we wind up forgeting the charm and also value of the world we presently occupy. We stay blinded by our look for something that might not even exist, overlooking the magic and beauty that exists under our very noses.

Finally, Eugene O'Neill's quote "Obsessed by a fairytale, we invest our lives looking for a magic door and also a lost kingdom of peace" is a potent tip that our search for paradise is often driven by the influence of fairy tales on our creative imaginations. While our desire for the enchanting and also the excellent is natural, we need to also welcome the world in front of us as well as appreciate its very own distinct magic and also charm.
