80 Magic Quotes For Inspiration And Love

Thousands of years ago, magicians were the advisers to kings and emperors. Long before advanced science, engineering, and medicine, magicians created illusions, influencing future scientists to turn those illusions into reality.

When observing how we, humans, behave, and how we interact with our environment, it is easy to realize that, every day, all of us are exposed to “apparent magic events”. Those little adventures that happen to us almost every day and are considered impossible in one way or another and are simply out of our comprehension. However, we don’t consider them as such – we see them as anything but magical.

Just think about it: various objects – glasses, cars, house keys – appear, disappear, and are transferred from one place to another under “apparently impossible conditions!” all the time.
