"Things need not have happened to be true. Tales and dreams are the shadow-truths that will endure when mere facts are dust and ashes, and forgot."
Morpheus, The Sandman #19, "A Midsummer Night's Dream"
"All tribal myths are true, for a given value of 'true'".

Don Gerb: Yes! The legends were true!
Sam: Damn it! Why are the legends always true?

Fuzzy: And disgusting! Always disgusting!
"Year after year, science finds explanations, scientific reasons behind all the legends. They think this proves history was not as myth has shown it, but in fact it proves that all the myths were true."
Abney Park, "All The Myths Are True"
"Legend tells us one thing, history another. But every now and then we find something that belongs to both."

Our ancient nightmares, the ghostly legends,
And fiendish tales, all the myths are true.
Scientists have unearthed enormous skeletons
They think we've disproved that all the myths are true.

--Abney Park, "All The Myths Are True"
