A Quote by Edgar Allan Poe on day, dreams, god, hope, kiss, and vision

Take this kiss upon the brow! And, in parting from you now, Thus much let me avow- You are not wrong, who deem That my days have been a dream; Yet if hope has flown away In a night, or in a day, In a vision, or in none, Is it therefore the less gone? All that we see or seem Is but a dream within a dream. I stand amid the roar Of a surf-tormented shore, And I hold within my hand Grains of the golden sand- How few! yet how they creep Through my fingers to the deep, While I weep- while I weep! O God! can I not grasp Them with a tighter clasp? O God! can I not save One from the pitiless wave? Is all that we see or seem But a dream within a dream?

A Quote by Edgar Allan Poe on darkness, day, departure, dreams, joy, life, loneliness, past, spirit, truth, vision, and world

In visions of the dark night      I have dreamed of joy departed-- But a waking dream of life and light      Hath left me broken-hearted. Ah! what is not a dream by day      To him whose eyes are cast On things around him with a ray      Turned back upon the past? That holy dream- that holy dream,      While all the world were chiding, Hath cheered me as a lovely beam      A lonely spirit guiding. What though that light, thro' storm and night,      So trembled from afar- What could there be more purely bright      In Truth's day-star?

To achieve the marvelous, you must do the unthinkable. . . the answer will hit, like a big psychic orgasm, if you listen to your dreams. They never lie.

A Quote by E. B. White on dreams and future

The future . . . seems to me no unified dream but a mince pie, long in the baking, never quite done.

A Quote by David Herbert Lawrence on beginning, dreams, heaven, lies, and motherhood

Whales in mid-ocean, suspended in the waves of the sea great heaven of whales in the waters, old hierarchies. And enormous mother whales lie dreaming suckling their whale-tender young and dreaming with strange whale eyes wide open in the waters of the beginning and the end.
