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

Surrealism claims for our waking life a freedom similar to that which we have in our dreams. ~Rene Magritte

All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible. ~T. E. Lawrence

Stored away in some brain cell is the image of a long-departed aunt you haven’t thought of in 30 years. Stored away in another cell is the image of a pink pony stitched on your first set of baby pajamas. All it takes to get that aunt mounted on the back of that pony is to eat a hunk of meatloaf immediately before going to bed.  ~Robert Brault

My eyes are an ocean in which my dreams are reflected. ~Anna M. Uhlich

People think dreams aren’t real just because they aren’t made of matter, of particles. Dreams are real. But they are made of viewpoints, of images, of memories and puns and lost hopes. ~Neil Gaiman

and my current personal favorite

Whenever someone tells me he dreamed, I wonder if he realizes that he has never done anything but dream. ~Fernando Pessoa

MAGRITTE THIS IS NOT A PIPE 1928-29
