I wonder anybody does anything at Oxford but dream and remember, the place is so beautiful. One almost expects the people to sing instead of speaking. It is all . . . like an opera.
William Butler Yeats quotes
What is life? A madness. What is life? An illusion, a shadow, a story. And the greatest good is little enough: for all life is a dream, and dreams themselves are only dreams.
Peggy Noonan quotes
That, if then I had waked after a long sleep, will make me sleep again; and then, in dreaming, the clouds me thought would open and show riches ready to drop upon me; that, when I waked I cried to dream again.
William Shakespeare quotes
I experience a period of frightening clarity in those moments when nature is so beautiful. I am no longer sure of myself, and the paintings appear as in a dream
Vincent Van Gogh quotes
What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity devoid of troubling or depressing subject matter…a soothing, calming influence on the mind, rather like a good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue.
Henri Matisse quotes
Where much is expected from an individual, he may rise to the level of events and make the dream come true.
Elbert Hubbard quotes
I had a dream my life would be different from this hell I am living, so different from what it seemed. Now life has killed the dream I dreamed.
Victor Hugo quotes
Dreams do come true if you keep believing in yourself. Anything is possible.
Jennifer Capriati quotes
For life is but a dream whose shapes return, some frequently, some seldom, some by night and some by day.
James Thomson quotes
A pulse in the eternal mind, no less, gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given. Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day; and laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness, in hearts at peace, under an English heaven.
Rupert Brooke quotes
