We figure to ourselves
  The thing we like, and then we build it up
    As chance will have it, on the rock or sand:
      For Thought is tired of wandering o'er the world,
        And homebound Fancy runs her bark ashore.
      - Sir Henry Taylor (2), Philip Van Artevelde
         (pt. I, act I, sc. 5)

Fancy light from Fancy caught.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, In Memoriam
         (pt. XXIII)

Fancy and humour, early and constantly indulged in, may expect an old age overrun with follies.
      - Isaac Watts

Fancy, when once brought into religion, knows not where to stop. It is like one of those fiends in old stories which any one could raise, but which, when raised, could never be kept within the magic circle.
      - Archbishop Richard Whately

Sad fancies do we then affect,
  In luxury of disrespect
    To our own prodigal excess
      Of too familiar happiness.
      - William Wordsworth, Ode to Lycoris

Fancy and pride seeks things at vast expense.
      - Edward Young
