The gist was, and I'm sure I'm loosely paraphrasing: "It's ok to believe in whatever convenient little lie (or fiction?) that helps you get through the day." My first thought was Vonnegut, but I can't find it or anything similar.

Best answer: It is Vonnegut...

"Live by the foma* that make you brave and kind and healthy and happy.
