If I may trust the flattering truth of sleep,
  My dreams presage some joyful news at hand.
    My bosom's lord sits lightly in his throne,
      And all this day an unaccustomed spirit
        Lifts me above the ground with cheerful thoughts.
      - William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
         (Romeo at V, i)

There is some ill a-brewing towards my rest,
  For I did dream of money bags to-night.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Merchant of Venice
         (Shylock at II, v)

We are such stuff
  As dreams are made on, and our little life
    Is rounded with a sleep.
      - William Shakespeare, The Tempest
         (Prospero at IV, i)

O, I have passed a miserable night,
  So full of fearful dreams, of ugly sights,
    That, as I am a Christian faithful man,
      I would not spend another such a night
        Though 'twere to buy a world of happy days--
          So full of dismal terror was the time.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Clarence at I, iv)

Lo, ere I can repeat this curse again,
  Within so small a time, my woman's heart
    Grossly grew captive to his honey words
      And proved the subject of mine own soul's curse,
        Which hitherto hath held mine eyes from rest;
          For never yet one hour in his bed
            Did I enjoy the golden dew of sleep,
              But with his timorous dreams was still awaked.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Anne at IV, i)

Across the silent stream
  Where the dream-shadows go,
    From the dim blue Hill of Dream
      I have heard the west wind blow.
      - William Sharp (used pseudonym Fiona McLeod),
        From the Hills of Dream

Ah, the strange, sweet, lonely delight
  Of the Valleys of Dream.
      - William Sharp (used pseudonym Fiona McLeod),
        From the Hills of Dream

In an ocean of dreams without a sound.
      - Percy Bysshe Shelley, The Sensitive Plant
         (pt. I, st. 26)

Divinity bath oftentimes descended
  Upon our slumbers, and the blessed troupes
    Have, in the calm and quiet of the soule,
      Conversed with us.
      - James Shirley

The day seems long, but night is odious; no sleep, but dreams; no dreams but visions strange.
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney)

As a wild maiden, with love-drinking eyes, sees in sweet dreams a beaming youth of glory.
      - Alexander Smith

People who don't have nightmares don't have dreams.
      - Robert Paul Smith,
        Where Did You Go? Out. What Did You Do? Nothing
         (p. 124)

I was not looking for my dreams to interpret my life, but rather for my life to interpret my dreams.
      - Susan Sontag

Toil, feel, think, hope; you will be sure to dream enough before you die, without arranging for it.
      - John Sterling

I dream, therefore I exist.
      - Johan August Strindberg,
        A Madmanís Defense (pt. 1, ch. 7)

Those dreams, that on the silent night intrude,
  And with false flitting shades our minds delude,
    Jove never sends us downward from the skies;
      Nor can they from infernal mansions rise;
        But are all mere productions of the brain,
          And fools consult interpreters in vain.
      - Jonathan Swift, On Dreams

In this world, of dreams, I have chosen my part.
  To sleep for a season and hear no word
    Of true love's truth or of light love's art,
      Only the song of a secret bird.
      - Algernon Charles Swinburne

In the world of dreams, I have chosen my part.
  To sleep for a season and hear no word
    Of true love's truth or of light love's art,
      Only the song of a secret bird.
      - Algernon Charles Swinburne,
        A Ballad of Dreamland--Envoi

Seeing, I saw not, hearing not, I heard.
  Tho', if I saw not, yet they told me all
    So often that I spake as having seen.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, Princess (VI, l. 3)

The dream
  Dreamed by a happy man, when the dark East,
    Unseen, is brightening to his bridal morn.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson,
        The Gardener's Daughter (l. 71)

Like glimpses of forgotten dreams.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, The Two Voices
         (st. CXXVII)

The chambers in the house of dreams
  Are fed with so divine an air,
    That Time's hoar wings grow young therein,
      And they who walk there are most fair.
      - Francis Thompson, Dream Tryst (st. 3)

In waking whispers and repeated dreams, to hint pure thoughts and warn the favored soul.
      - James Thomson (1)

Dreams are the touchstones of our character.
      - Henry David Thoreau

Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.
      - Henry David Thoreau
