idela

A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on idela, reverie, memory, dream, and love

Nothing is forgotten in the processes of idealization. Reveries of idealization develop, not by letting oneself be taken in by memories, but by constantly dreaming the values of a being whom one would love. And that is the way a great dreamer dreams his double. His magnified double sustains him.

Gaston Bachelard (1884 - 1962)
