99,620.  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.  (Comedy & Dream & United States)  George Carlin, Brain Droppings audio

 

 

113,757.  What a life – the life of a dreamer – I am always building castles in the air.  (Engineering & Dream)  Isambard Kingdom Brunel, cited Rob Bell, Brunel: The Man Who Built Britain, Channel 5 2017

 

 

562.  What happens when you realise the dream is true?  (Religion & Dream & Meaning of Life)  Richard Dawkins, Sex, Death and the Meaning of Life II, Channel 4 2012

 

 

28,958.  That’s why they call it the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it.  (United States & Dream)  George Carlin

1,098.  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.  (Life's Like That & Illusion & Dream)  Pedro Calderon de la Barca

 

 

1,126.  We live as we dream – alone.  (Life’s Like That & Dream & Alone)  Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness

 

 

1,130.  Perhaps life is just that ... a dream and a fear.  (Life’s Like That & Dream & Fear)  Joseph Conrad

 

 

1,153.  Life is perhaps most wisely regarded as a bad dream between two awakenings, and every day is a life in miniature.  (Life’s Like That & Dream)  Eugene O’Neill, Marco Millions 1928

 

 

70,720.  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

 

 

70,716.  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

 

70,717.  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

 

70,718.  If we shadows have offended,

Think but this, and all is mended,

1,194.  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, there’s the rub;

For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,

When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,

Must give us pause.  There’s the respect

That makes calamity of so long life.

For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,

The oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,

The pangs of despised love, the law’s delay,

The insolence of office ...  (Life’s Like That & Be & Question & Noble & Mind & Suffer & Fortune & Arms & Trouble & Opposition & Death & Pain & Suicide & Dream & Oppress & Law & Office & Fortunate)  William Shakespeare, Hamlet, III i 56-73

 

 

70,723.  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

 

 

70,724.  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

 

 

70,725.  Not mine own fears, nor the prophetic soul

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

 

 

46,088.  We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep.  (Shakespeare & Dream & Tempest)  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

 

 

2,061.  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.  (Life’s Like That & Soul & Dream)  Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, A Psalm to Life 1838

 

2,062.  Art is long, and Time is fleeting,

And our hearts, though stout and brave,

Still, like muffled dreams, are beating

2,586.  Science is based on curiosity ... Space for the dreamers to dream.  (Science & Curiosity & Dream)  Science Britannica III: Clear Blue Skies

 

 

2,647.  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.   (Science & Universe & Philosophy & Dream)  J B S Haldane, Possible Worlds
