I slept, and dreamed that life was Beauty;I woke, and found that life was Duty.Was thy dream then a shadowy lie?Toil on, poor heart, unceasingly;And thou shalt find thy dream to beA truth and noonday light to thee.
Only because of the striving nature of men has mankind achieved what it has so far. Men are made that way; they are designed to reach out for things which they cannot see with their eyes but can only imagine. A man naturally seeks after his dream, his ideal, while women are more concerned with the here and now rather than the future, intangible realm.sun myung moon
Surely this new age is not a repudiation of, but a fulfillment of, the American dream. What were the machines for, unless to give man a new freedom to choose how he would live?charles a. reich
The American dream that has lured tens of millions of all nations to our shores in the past century has not been a dream of material plenty, though that has doubtlessly counted heavily. It has been a dream of being able to grow to fullest development as a man and woman, unhampered by the barriers which had slowly been erected in the older civilizations, unrepressed by social orders which had developed for the benefit of classes rather than for the simple human being of any and every class.james truslow adams
All Nature seems at work. Slugs leave their lair The bees are stirring birds are on the wing And Winter slumbering in the open air, Wears on his smiling face a dream of Spring! And I the while, the sole unbusy thing, Nor honey make, nor pair, nor build, nor sing.Samuel Taylor Coleridge
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.james anthony froude
I dared not dream she loved me. Nay, Her love was proud; and pride is loth To look with favor, own it fond Of one the world loves not to-day … No matter if she loved or no, God knows I loved enough for both, And knew her as you shall not know Till you have known sweet death, and you Have cross'd the dark; gone over to The great majority beyond.joaquin miller
I do not believe that I am now dreaming, but I cannot prove that I am not. I am, however, quite certain that I am having certain experiences, whether they be those of a dream or those of waking life.bertrand russell
Let fancy still my sense in Lethe steep; If it be thus to dream, still let me sleep!william shakespeare
Upon the brink of the wild stream He stood, and dreamt a mighty dream.
A face to lose youth for, to occupy age With the dream of, meet death with.Robert Browning

Sanity is madness put to good uses; waking life is a dream controlled.george santayana
They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.edgar allan poe
Is this is a dream? O, if it be a dream, Let me sleep on, and do not wake me yet!Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Men rarely (if ever) manage to dream up a god superior to themselves. Most gods have the manners and morals of a spoiled child .
It is self-love and its offspring self-deception, which shut the gates of heaven, and lead men, as if in a delicious dream, to hell.christian scriver
The noiseless foot of Tune steals swiftly by And ere we dream of manhood, age is nigh.
My dream is but a fal'Cie's fancy now. End it.
Jesus , in some respects, was an anarchist, for he had no idea of civil government . That government seems to him purely and simply an abuse. A great social revolution, in which rank will be overturned, in which all authority in this world will be humiliated, was his dream .
My doom is, I love thee still. Let no man dream but that I love thee still.
Richard Nixon has never been one of my favorite people anyway. For years I've regarded his existence as a monument to all the rancid genes and broken chromosomes that corrupt the possibilities of the American dream; he was a foul caricature of himself, a man with no soul, no inner convictions, with the integrity of a hyena and the style of a poison toad. The Nixon I remembered was absolutely humorless; I couldn't imagine him laughing at anything except maybe a paraplegic who wanted to vote Democratic but couldn't quite reach the lever on the voting machine.hunter s. thompson
