Good times for a change
See, the luck I've had
Can make a good man
Turn bad

So please, please, please
Let me, let me, let me
Let me get what I want
This time

Haven't had a dream in a long time
See, the life I've had
Can make a good man bad

So for once in my life
Let me get what I want
Lord knows, it would be the first time
Lord knows, it would be the first time.  The Smiths, Please Please Let Me Get What I Want

 

 

In a world full of adversity we must dare to dream.  Rob Burrows, variations and attributions

 

 

And now we’re just playing out this dream … the slow circling of the dream by a once promising species and the sappy ever more desperate belief in this country that there is some sort of American dream which has merely been displaced.  George Carlin, Brain Droppings audio

 

 

That’s why they call it the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it.  George Carlin 

 

 

‘What a life  the life of a dreamer  I am always building castles in the air.  Isambard Kingdom Brunel, cited Rob Bell, Brunel: The Man Who Built Britain, Channel 5 2017

 

 

What happens when you realise the dream is true?  Richard Dawkins, Sex, Death and the Meaning of Life II, Channel 4 2012

 

 

Don’t let them destroy your dreams.  Pastor Brown, Brixton Pentecostal Church, cited Life and Death the Pentecostal Way, BBC 2016 

 

 

What is life?  A Frenzy.  What is life?  An illusion, a shadow, a fiction.  And the greatest good is of slight worth, as all life is a dream, and dreams and dreams.  Pedro Calderon de la Barca

 

 

We live as we dream – alone.  Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness

 

 

Perhaps life is just that ... a dream and a fear.  Joseph Conrad

 

 

Life is perhaps most wisely regarded as a bad dream between two awakenings, and every day is a life in miniature.  Eugene O’Neill, Marco Millions, 1928

 

 

True, I talk of dreams,

Which are the children of an idle brain,

Begot of nothing but vain fantasy,

Which is as thin of substance as the air.  William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet I iv 97-100, Mercutio to Romeo

 

 

I never had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was.  William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream IV i 211

 

The eye of man hath not heard, the ear of man hath not seen, man’s  hand is not able to taste, his tongue to conceive, nor his heart to report, what my dream was.  ibid.  IV i 218

 

If we shadows have offended,

Think but this, and all is mended,

That you have but slumbered here

While these visions did appear.  ibid.  V ii 54

 

 

For I did dream of money-bags tonight.  William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice II v 18, Shylock to Jessica and Lancelot

 

 

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,

Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.  William Shakespeare, Hamlet I v 167-168, Hamlet to Horatio

 

I could be bounded in a nut-shell, and count myself a king of infinite space, were it not that I have bad dreams.  ibid.  II ii 251-252, Hamlet

 

A dream itself is but a shadow.  ibid.  II ii 255, Hamlet

 

To be, or not to be – that is the question.

Whether tis nobler in the mind to suffer

The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.

Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,

And by opposing end them? – To die – to sleep –

No more; and by a sleep to say we end

The heart-ache, and the thousand natural shocks

That flesh is heir to; tis a consummation

Devoutly to be wished.  To die – to sleep –

To sleep! Perchance to dream.  Aye, theres the rub;

For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,

When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,

Must give us pause.  Theres the respect

That makes calamity of so long life.

For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,

The oppressors wrong, the proud mans contumely,

The pangs of despised love, the laws delay,

The insolence of office   ibid.  III i 56-73

 

 

Ere we will eat our meal in fear, and sleep

In the affliction of these terrible dreams

That shake us nightly.  Better be with the dead,

Whom we to gain our peace have sent to peace,

Than on the torture of the mind to lie

In restless ecstasy.  William Shakespeare, The Tragedy of Macbeth III iii @19, Macbeth

 

 

Poor wretches that depend

On greatness’ favour dream as I have done,

Wake and find nothing.  But, alas, I swerve.

Many dream not to find, neither deserve,

And yet are steeped in favours.  William Shakespeare, Cymbeline V v @221, Posthumus

 

 

Not mine own fears, nor the prophetic soul

Of the wide world dreaming on things to come.  William Shakespeare, Sonnet 107

 

 

We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep.  The Tempest 2010 starring Helen Mirren & Felicity Jones & Chris Cooper & Russell Brand & Reeve Carney & Tom Conti & Alan Cumming & Dimon Hounsou & Alfred Molina & Ben Whishaw et al, director Julie Taymor

 

 

Tell me not, in mournful numbers

Life is but an empty dream!

For the soul is dead that slumbers,

And things are not what they seem.

Life is real! Life is earnest!

And the grave is not its goal;

Dust thou art, to dust returnest,

Was not spoken of the soul.  Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, A Psalm to Life, 1838

 

Art is long, and Time is fleeting,

And our hearts, though stout and brave,

Still, like muffled dreams, are beating

Funeral marches to the grave.  ibid.

 

 

Science is based on curiosity ... Space for the dreamers to dream.  Science Britannica III: Clear Blue Skies, BBC 2014

 

 

Now, my own suspicion is that the universe is not only queerer than we suppose, but queerer than we can suppose.  I have read and heard many attempts at a systematic account of it, from materialism and theosophy to the Christian system or that of Kant, and I have always felt that they were much too simple.  I suspect that there are more things in heaven and earth that are dreamed of, or can be dreamed of, in any philosophy.  That is the reason why I have no philosophy myself, and must be my excuse for dreaming.  J B S Haldane, Possible Worlds
