2. "Reality is wrong ___ are for real." Tupac Shakur
3. "Be careful about reading health books. You may ___ of a misprint." Mark Twain
4. "I saw the ___ in the marble and carved until I set him free." Michelangelo
5. "Failure is ___ if we learn from it." Malcolm Forbes

7. "I refuse to answer that question on the grounds that I don't know the ___." Douglas Adams
