They all talked at once, their voices insistent and contradictory and impatient, making of unreality a possibility, then a probability, then an incontrovertible fact, as people will when their desires become words.
Facts and truth really don't have much to do with each other.
I don't care much for facts, am not much interested in them you can't stand a fact up, you've got to prop it up, and when you move to one side a little and look at it from that angle, it's not thick enough to cast a shadow in that direction.
The past is not dead. In fact, it's not even past.
