Dreaming of a tomorrow, which tomorrow, will be as distant then as 'tis today.
Lope de Vega

Ideologies separate us. Dreams and anguish bring us together.
We all dream; we do not understand our dreams, yet we act as if nothing strange goes on in our sleep minds, strange at least by comparison with the logical, purposeful doings of our minds when we are awake.
Dreams will get you nowhere, a good kick in the pants will take you a long way.

I don't use drugs, my dreams are frightening enough.
M. C. Escher
I think we dream so we don't have to be apart so long. If we're in each other's dreams, we can play together all night.

I tell people I'm too stupid to know what's impossible. I have ridiculously large dreams, and half the time they come true.
God's gifts put man's best dreams to shame.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
I've always said that one night, I'm going to find myself in some field somewhere, I'm standing on grass, and it's raining, and I'm with the person I love, and I know I'm at the very point I've been dreaming of getting to.
Only in our dreams are we free. The rest of the time we need wages.
When you cease to dream you cease to live.
Perhaps life is just that... a dream and a fear.

David Herbert Lawrence
Those who have compared our life to a dream were right... we were sleeping wake, and waking sleep.
Michel de Montaigne

Whatever you do, never stop dreaming.
Darren L. Johnson
Dream manfully and nobly, and thy dreams shall be prophets.
Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
I was always a dreamer, in childhood especially. People thought I was a little strange.
Sometimes, the only realists are the dreamers.
My dreams were all my own; I accounted for them to nobody; they were my refuge when annoyed - my dearest pleasure when free.
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
Everybody's a dreamer.
