A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on dream, reverie, communicate, writing, emotion, love, soul, and poetry

In contrast to a dream a reverie cannot be recounted. To be communicated, it must be written, written with emotion and taste, being relived all the more strongly because it is being written down. Here, we are touching the realm of written love. It is going out of fashion, but the benefits remain. There are still souls for whom love is the contact of two poetries, the fusion of two reveries.

Gaston Bachelard (1884 - 1962)
