The real is just as...

"The real is just as fantastical as the fantastical is real."

- Jünger, Ernst; 'Sizilischer Brief an den Mann im Mond' (Sicilian Letter to the Manin the Moon), from 'Mondstein, Magische Geschichten; 20 novellen' (Moonstone, Magical Stories; 20 novellas) by Franz Schauwecker, featuring Ludwig Alwens, Werner Bergengruen, Otto Brües, Felix Buttersack, Richard Euringer, et al. Berlin, Frundsberg-Verlag GmbH, 1930.

An alternative translation is "The real is just as magical as the magical is real."
