dreams quotes

#1540 Oscar Wilde

It is to do nothing that the elect exist. Action is limited and relative. Unlimited and absolute is the vision of him who sits at ease and watches, who walks in loneliness and dreams. .

Oscar Wilde Quotes about dreams
#5213 Mark Twain

No one doubts—certainly not I— From the beginning of time, the sorcerer, the interpreter of dreams, the fortune-teller, the charlatan, the quack, the wild medicine-man, the educated physician, the mesmerist, and the hypnotist have made use of the client's imagination to help them in their work. They have all recognized the potency and availability of that force. Physicians cure many patients with a bread pill; they know that where the disease is only a fancy, the patient's confidence in the doctor will make the bread pill effective. .

Mark Twain Quotes about dreams
#6340 Henry David Thoreau

Gradually the village murmur subsided, and we seemed to be embarked on the placid current of our dreams, floating from past to future as silently as one awakes to fresh morning or evening thoughts. .

Henry David Thoreau Quotes about dreams
#6421 Henry David Thoreau

Why should we not meet, not always as dyspeptics, to tell our bad dreams, but sometimes as eupeptics, to congratulate each other on the ever glorious morning? .

Henry David Thoreau Quotes about dreams
#6451 Henry David Thoreau

We may well be ashamed to tell what things we have read or heard in our day. I do not know why my news should be so trivial, — considering what one's dreams and expectations are, why the developments should be so paltry. The news we hear, for the most part, is not news to our genius. It is the stalest repetition. .

Henry David Thoreau Quotes about dreams
#6863 Adlai Stevenson

Freedom is not an ideal, it is not even a protection, if it means nothing more than freedom to stagnate, to live without dreams, to have no greater aim than a second car and another television set. .

Adlai Stevenson Quotes about dreams
#7992 StanisЕ‚aw Lem

The number of one's possible fantasies is inversely proportional to the amount of one's liquid assets. For him who has everything dreams are no longer possible. .

StanisЕ‚aw Lem Quotes about dreams
#8132 H. L. Mencken

No healthy man, in his secret heart, is content with his destiny. He is tortured by dreams and images as a child is tortured by the thought of a state of existence in which it would live in a candy store and have two stomachs. .

H. L. Mencken Quotes about dreams
#8780 Samuel Johnson

The potentiality of growing rich beyond the dreams of avarice. .

Samuel Johnson Quotes about dreams
#8910 Bill Watterson

Calvin: Somewhere in Communist Russia I'll bet there's a little boy who has never known anything but censorship and oppression. But maybe he's heard of America, and he dreams of living in this land of freedom and opportunity! Someday, I'd like to meet that little boy...and tell him the awful TRUTH ABOUT THIS PLACE!! Calvin's Dad: Calvin, be quiet and eat the stupid lima beans. p70 .

#9055 Bill Watterson

Hobbes: If you don't get a good night kiss, you get Kafka dreams. p87 .

Bill Watterson Quotes about dreams
#9748 Theodore Roosevelt

The dreams of golden glory in the future will not come true unless, high of heart and strong of hand, by our own mighty deeds we make them come true. .

Theodore Roosevelt Quotes about dreams
#9759 Theodore Roosevelt

Personally, I do not believe that our civilization will fall. I think that on the whole we have grown better and not worse. I think that on the whole the future holds more for us than even the great past has held. But, assuredly, the dreams of golden glory in the future will not come true unless, high of heart and strong of hand, by our own mighty deeds we make them come true. We can not afford to develop any one set of qualities, any one set of activities, at the cost of seeing others, equally necessary, atrophied. Neither the military efficiency of the Mongol, the extraordinary business ability of the Phoenician, nor the subtle and polished intellect of the Greek availed to avert destruction. .

Theodore Roosevelt Quotes about dreams
#9969 Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Alice! a childish story take, And with a gentle hand Lay it where Childhood's dreams are twined In Memory's mystic band, Like pilgrim's withered wreath of flowers Plucked in a far-off land. .

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Quotes about dreams
#10399 Pablo Picasso

It would be very curious to record by means of photographs, not the stage of the picture, but its metamorphoses. Perhaps one would perceive the path taken by the mind in order to put its dreams into a concrete form. But what is really very curious is to observe that fundamentally the picture does not change, that despite appearances the initial vision remains almost intact. .

Pablo Picasso Quotes about dreams
#10408 Pablo Picasso

How can you expect a beholder to experience my picture as I experienced it? A picture comes to me a long time beforehand; who knows how long a time beforehand, I sensed, saw, and painted it and yet the next day even I do not understand what I have done. How can anyone penetrate my dreams, my instincts, my desires, my thought, which have taken a long time to fashion themselves and come to the surface, above all to grasp what I put there, perhaps involuntary? .

Pablo Picasso Quotes about dreams
#10519 W. H. Auden

The condition of mankind is, and always has been, so miserable and depraved that, if anyone were to say to the poet: "For God's sake stop singing and do something useful like putting on the kettle or fetching bandages," what just reason could he give for refusing? But nobody says this. The self-appointed unqualified nurse says: "You are to sing the patient a song which will make him believe that I, and I alone, can cure him. If you can't or won't, I shall confiscate your passport and send you to the mines." And the poor patient in his delirium cries: "Please sing me a song which will give me sweet dreams instead of nightmares. If you succeed, I will give you a penthouse in New York or a ranch in Arizona." .

W. H. Auden Quotes about dreams
#10729 Gustave Flaubert

"Do you really not know," he said, "that there exist souls that are ceaselessly in torment? That are driven now to dreams, now to action, driven from the purest passions to the most orgiastic pleasures? No wonder we fling ourselves into all kinds of fantasies and follies!" .

Gustave Flaubert Quotes about dreams
#11097 George W. Bush

President Thomas Jefferson once wrote, "I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past." As I leave the house he occupied two centuries ago, I share that optimism. America is a young country, full of vitality, constantly growing and renewing itself. And even in the toughest times, we lift our eyes to the broad horizon ahead. .

George W. Bush Quotes about dreams
#11212 Arthur C. Clarke

In my time I’ve been very fortunate to see many of my dreams come true! Growing up in the 1920s and 1930s, I never expected to see so much happen in the span of a few decades. We "space cadets" of the British Interplanetary Society spent all our spare time discussing space travel — but we didn’t imagine that it lay in our own near future… I still can't quite believe that we've just marked the 50th anniversary of the Space Age! We’ve accomplished a great deal in that time, but the "Golden Age of Space" is only just beginning. Over the next 50 years, thousands of people will travel to Earth orbit — and then, to the Moon and beyond. Space travel — and space tourism — will one day become almost as commonplace as flying to exotic destinations on our own planet. .

Arthur C. Clarke Quotes about dreams
#11447 Friedrich Nietzsche

Our innermost being, our common foundation, experiences dreams with profound pleasure and joyful necessity. .

Friedrich Nietzsche Quotes about dreams
#11584 Friedrich Nietzsche

We have no dreams at all or interesting ones. We should learn to be awake the same way — not at all or in an interesting manner. .

Friedrich Nietzsche Quotes about dreams
#13539 T. S. Eliot

T. S. Eliot Quotes about dreams
#13920 Alfred, Lord Tennyson

So many minds did gird their orbs with beams, Tho' one did fling the fire; Heaven flow'd upon the soul in many dreams Of high desire. .

Alfred, Lord Tennyson Quotes about dreams
#13922 Alfred, Lord Tennyson

There was no blood upon her maiden robes Sunn'd by those orient skies; But round about the circles of the globes Of her keenAnd in her raiment's hem was traced in flame WISDOM, a name to shake All evil dreams of power — a sacred name. And when she spake, Her words did gather thunder as they ran, And as the lightning to the thunder Which follows it, riving the spirit of man, Making earth wonder,So was their meaning to her words. No sword Of wrath her right arm whirl'd, But one poor poet's scroll, and with his word She shook the world. .

Alfred, Lord Tennyson Quotes about dreams
#14045 Emily Bront

Reason, indeed, may oft complain For Nature's sad reality, And tell the suffering heart, how vain Its cherished dreams must always be; And Truth may rudely trample down The flowers of Fancy, newly-blown: .

Emily Bront Quotes about dreams
#14050 Emily Bront

But when the days of golden dreams had perished, And even Despair was powerless to destroy; Then did I learn how existence could be cherished, Strengthened, and fed without the aid of joy. .

Emily Bront Quotes about dreams
#14484 Percy Bysshe Shelley

I arise from dreams of thee In the first sweet sleep of night, When the winds are breathing low, And the stars are shining bright. .

Percy Bysshe Shelley Quotes about dreams
#14564 Percy Bysshe Shelley

Thou who didst waken from his summer dreams The blue Mediterranean, where he lay, Lull'd by the coil of his crystalline streams Beside a pumice isle in Bai .

Percy Bysshe Shelley Quotes about dreams
#14586 Percy Bysshe Shelley

I bring fresh showers for the thirsting flowers, From the seas and the streams; I bear light shade for the leaves when laid In their noonday dreams. From my wings are shaken the dews that waken The sweet buds every one, When rocked to rest on their mother's breast, As she dances about the sun. I wield the flail of the lashing hail, And whiten the green plains under, And then again I dissolve it in rain, And laugh as I pass in thunder. .

Percy Bysshe Shelley Quotes about dreams
#15057 Ronald Reagan

It is time for us to realize that we're too great a nation to limit ourselves to small dreams. .

Ronald Reagan Quotes about dreams
#16745 Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Three Silences there are: the first of speech, The second of desire, the third of thought; This is the lore a Spanish monk, distraught With dreams and visions, was the first to teach. .

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Quotes about dreams
#17434 William Wordsworth

Huge and mighty forms, that do not live Like living men, moved slowly through the mind By day, and were a trouble to my dreams. .

William Wordsworth Quotes about dreams
#18435 Jonathan Swift

Those dreams that on the silent night intrude, and with false flitting shapes our minds delude ... are mere productions of the brain. And fools consult interpreters in vain. .

Jonathan Swift Quotes about dreams
#19871 E. M. Forster

This conversation taught me that some of us can meet reality on this side of the grave. I do not envy them. Such adventures may profit the disembodied soul, but as long as I have flesh and blood I pray that my grossness preserve me. Our lower nature has its dreams. Mine is of a certain farm, windy but fruitful, half-way between the deserted moorland and the uninhabitable sea. Hither, at rare intervals, she should descend and he ascend, to shatter their spiritual communion by one caress. .

E. M. Forster Quotes about dreams
#22780 Carl Jung

We are so captivated by and entangled in our subjective consciousness that we have forgotten the age-old fact that God speaks chiefly through dreams and visions. .

Carl Jung Quotes about dreams
#22844 Carl Jung

We must now turn to the question of how the existence of archetypes can be proved. Since archetypes are supposed to produce certain psychic forms, we must discuss how and where one can get hold of the material demonstrating these forms. The main source, then, is dreams, which have the advantage of being involuntary, spontaneous products of nature not falsified by any conscious purpose. By questioning the individual one can ascertain which of the motifs appearing in the dream are known to him... Consequently, we must look for motifs which could not possibly be known to the dreamer and yet behave functionally of the archetype known from historical sources. .

Carl Jung Quotes about dreams
#22852 Carl Jung

The conscious mind allows itself to be trained like a parrot, but the unconscious does not — which is whythanked God for not making him responsible for his dreams. .

Carl Jung Quotes about dreams
#25210 Cyril Connolly

Beneath a mask of selfish tranquility nothing exists except bitterness and boredom. I am one of those whom suffering has made empty and frivolous: each night in my dreams I pull the scab off a wound; each day, vacuous and habit-ridden, I help it re-form. .

Cyril Connolly Quotes about dreams
#25739 Philosopher

Sublime Philosophy! Thou art the patriarch’s ladder, reaching heaven; And bright with beckoning angels—but alas! We see thee, like the patriarch, but in dreams, By the first step, dull slumbering on the earth. .

Philosopher Quotes about dreams
#25971 Fernando Pessoa

God wills, man dreams, the work is born. .

Fernando Pessoa Quotes about dreams
#26031 Fernando Pessoa

My dreams are a stupid refuge, like an umbrella against a thunderbolt. .

Fernando Pessoa Quotes about dreams
#26052 Fernando Pessoa

What's most worthless about dreams is that everybody has them. .

Fernando Pessoa Quotes about dreams
#26101 Fernando Pessoa

Knowing not to have illusions is absolutely necessary in order to have dreams. .

Fernando Pessoa Quotes about dreams
#26959 William Faulkner

All of us failed to match our dreams of perfection. So I rate us on the basis of our splendid failure to do the impossible. .

William Faulkner Quotes about dreams
#27883 William Cullen Bryant

They talk of short-lived pleasures—be it so— pain dies as quickly: stern, hard-featured pain Expires, and lets her weary prisoner go. The fiercest agonies have shortest reign; And after dreams of horror, comes again The welcome morning with its rays of peace. .

William Cullen Bryant Quotes about dreams
#28181 Drugs

"All your dreams are made when you're chained to the mirror and a razor blade." .

Drugs Quotes about dreams
#29183 Jonas Zalk

I have dreams, and I have nightmares. I overcame the nightmares because of my dreams. .

Jonas Zalk Quotes about dreams
#29438 H. P. Lovecraft

Many of his questions seemed highly out of place to his visitor, especially those which tried to connect the latter with strange cults or societies; and Wilcox could not understand the repeated promises of silence which he was offered in exchange for an admission of membership in some widespread mystical or paganly religious body. When Professor Angell became convinced that the sculptor was indeed ignorant of any cult or system of cryptic lore, he besieged his visitor with demands for future reports of dreams. .

H. P. Lovecraft Quotes about dreams
#29439 H. P. Lovecraft

My uncle, it seems, had quickly instituted a prodigiously far-flung body of inquires amongst nearly all the friends whom he could question without impertinence, asking for nightly reports of their dreams, and the dates of any notable visions for some time past. The reception of his request seems to have varied; but he must, at the very least, have received more responses than any ordinary man could have handled without a secretary. .
