Reality and Truth

Reality and truth are both so hackneyed in a commonplace manner with over-lapping ideas that they each lose their own individuality.

The Power of Truth

The Power of the Truth Novelist Tim O’Brian once said “A lie, sometimes, can be truer than the truth, which is why fiction gets written.” In his novel The Things They Carried, O’Brian argues that “story-truth is sometimes truer than happening-truth” (171).
