His fancy lost in pleasant dreams.
      - Joseph Addison

I believe that everyone, some time or other, dreams that he is reading papers, books, or letters; in which case the invention prompts so readily that the mind is imposed upon, and mistakes its own suggestions for the composition of another.
      - Joseph Addison

Our dreams drench us in sense, and sense steeps us again in dreams.
      - Amos Bronson Alcott

When to soft Sleep we give ourselves away,
  And in a dream as in a fairy bark
    Drift on and on through the enchanted dark
      To purple daybreak--little thought we pay
        To that sweet bitter world we know by day.
      - Thomas Bailey Aldrich, Sonnet--Sleep

Dreams are excursions into the limbo of things, a semi-deliverance from the human prison.
      - Henri-Frederic Amiel

Dreams are rudiments
  Of the great state to come. We dream what is
    About to happen.
      - Philip James Bailey

But dreams full oft are found of real events
  The form and shadows.
      - Joanna Baillie

The visions of a busy brain.
      - Joanna Baillie

Sweet sleep be with us, one and all!
  And if upon its stillness fall
    The visions of a busy brain,
      We'll have our pleasure o'er again,
        To warm the heart, to charm the sight,
          Gay dreams to all! good night, good night.
      - Joanna Baillie, The Phantom--Song

If there were dreams to sell,
  What would you buy?
    Some cost a passing bell;
      Some a light sigh,
        That shakes from Life's fresh crown
          Only a rose-leaf down.
            If there were dreams to sell,
              Merry and sad to tell,
                And the crier rung the bell,
                  What would you buy?
      - Thomas Lovell Beddoes, Dream-Pedlary

People who insist on telling their dreams are among the terrors of the breakfast table.
      - Max Beerbohm

Dreaming men are haunted men.
      - Stephen Vincent Benet

Dreams are, by definition, cursed with short life spans.
      - Candice Bergen

And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
  And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
      - Bible, Joel (ch. II, v. 28-29)

As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image.
      - Bible, Psalms (ch. LXXIII, v. 20)

Sleep brings dreams; and dreams are often most vivid and fantastical before we have yet been wholly lost in slumber.
      - Robert Montgomery Bird

As dreams are the fancies of those that sleep, so fancies are but the dreams of those awake.
      - Sir Thomas Pope Blount

"Come to me, darling; I'm lonely without thee;
  Daytime and nighttime I'm dreaming about thee."
      - Joseph Brenan (Brennan),
        The Exile To His Wife

I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me even after, and changed my ideas; they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the color of my mind.
      - Emily Jane Bronte (used pseudonym Ellis Bell)

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
      - Les Brown

We ere somewhat more than ourselves in our sleep; and the slumber of the body seems to be but the waking of the soul. It is the ligation of sense, but the liberty of reason; and our waking conceptions do not match the fancies of our sleeps.
      - Sir Thomas Browne

Oft morning dreams presage approaching fate,
  For morning dreams, as poets tell, are true.
      - Michael Bruce, Elegy on Spring

I dreamt that I dwelt in marble halls,
  With vassals and serfs at my side,
    And of all who assembled within those walls,
      That I was the hope and the pride.
      - Alfred Bunn, Bohemian Girl
         (Arline at act II, sc. 2, a song)

When you have a dream you've got to grab it and never let go.
      - Carol Burnett

Dreams in their development have breath,
  And tears, and tortures, and the touch of joy,
    They have a weight upon our waking thoughts,
      They take a weight from off our waking toils,
        They do divide our being.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)
