dream

A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on universe, reverie, dream, happiness, destiny, gift, and work

A universe comes to contribute to our happiness when reverie comes to accentuate our repose. You must tell the man who wants to dream well to begin by being happy. Then reverie plays out its veritable destiny; it becomes poetic reverie and by it, in it, everything becomes beautiful. If the dreamer had "the gift" he would turn his reverie into a work. And this work would be grandiose since the dreamed world is automatically grandiose.

A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on solitude, dream, and memory

A pretext--not a cause--is sufficient for us to enter the "solitary situation", the situation of the dreaming solitude. In this solitude, memories arrange themselves in tableaux. Decor takes precedence over drama. Sad memories take on at least the peace of melancholy.

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.

A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on love, expression, poetry, and dream

Love is never finished expressing itself, and it expresses itself better the more poetically it is dreamed.

A Quote by unknown on seek, river, mountain, eternity, and dream

What you seek is located in the Mountain of Doom.  It lies across the River of Fire, and is guarded by the Dragons of Eternity.  It is there - only you can retrieve it.
