I had a dream, which was not all a dream.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),

A change came o'er the spirit of my dream.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Dream (st. 3)

And 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),
        The Dream (st. 1)

Sorrow returned with the dawning of morn, and the voice in my dreaming ear melted away.
      - Thomas Campbell

All the things one has forgotten scream for help in dreams.
      - Elias Canetti

All things one has forgotten scream for help in dreams.
      - Elias Canetti, Die Provinz der Menschen

The fisher droppeth his net in the stream,
  And a hundred streams are the same as one;
    And the maiden dreameth her love-lit dream;
      And what is it all, when all is done?
        The net of the fisher the burden breaks,
          And always the dreaming the dreamer wakes.
      - Alice Cary, Lover's Diary

Regard not dreams, since they are but the images of our hopes and fears.
      - Cato (Marcus Porcius Cato "The Elder") (a/k/a Cato the Censor)

Again let us dream where the land lies sunny
  And live, like the bees, on our hearts' old honey,
    Away from the world that slaves for money--
      Come, journey the way with me.
      - Madison Julius Cawein, Song of the Road

Like the dreams,
  Children of night, of indigestion bred.
      - Charles Churchill, The Candidate (l. 784)

In sleep, when fancy is let loose to play,
  Our dreams repeat the wishes of the day.
      - Claudian (Claudianus)

Nothing so much convinces me of the boundlessness of the human mind as its operations in dreaming.
      - William Benton Clulow

My eyes make pictures, when they are shut.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge, A Day Dream

And so, his senses gradually wrapt
  In a half sleep, he dreams of better worlds,
    And dreaming hears thee still, O singing lark;
      That singest like an angel in the clouds.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Fears in Solitude

For to dream and then to return to reality only means that our qualms suffer a change of place and significance.
      - Sidonie Gabrielle Colette

Dreams ought to produce no conviction whatever on philosophical minds. If we consider how many dreams are dreamt every night, and how many events occur every day, we shall no longer wonder at those accidental coincidences which ignorance mistakes for verifications.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

Metaphysicians have been learning their lessons for the last four thousand years, and it is high time that they should now begin to teach us something. Can any of the tribe inform us why all the operations of the mind are carried on with undiminished strength and activity in dreams, except the judgment, which alone is suspended and dormant?
      - Charles Caleb Colton

Dream after dream ensues;
  And still they dream that they shall still succeed;
    And still are disappointed.
      - William Cowper, Task (bk. III, l. 127)

Dreams are like portraits; and we find they please because they are confessed resemblances.
      - George Crabbe

What studies please, what most delight,
  And fill men's thoughts, they dream them o'er at night.
      - Thomas Creech

But if, as morning rises, dreams are true.
      - Dante ("Dante Alighieri")

Dream the impossible dream.
      - Joe Darion, part of a song

Alas! that dreams are only dreams!
  That fancy cannot give
    A lasting beauty to those forms,
      Which scarce a moment live!
      - Rufus Dawes

Dreams are the bright creatures of poem and legend, who sport on the earth in the night season, and melt away with the first beam of the sun which lights grim care and stern reality on their daily pilgrimage through the world.
      - Charles Dickens

All your dreams can come true if you have the courage to pursue them.
      - Walt Disney
