|Borges & Sabato|
"I believe" says Sabato, "that truth is perfect for maths, chemistry and philosophy, but not for life. In life, in this reality we are dealing with on a daily basis, aspiration, imagination, yearning and hope are more important."
[In passing being said, only a scientist who quit science (nuclear physics, of all...) to play with a different fantasy could have come up with something like this.]
Borges (he's the quiet one), seems to ponder, then says, dryly:
"My dear Sabato, keep in mind, kindly, that reality is not always probable, or likely."
