    "On my pillow"
    Your kiss, from dreams a long time ago
    a hug,
    a tender caress,
    only in dreams.
    I confess to watching the gentle rise and fall of your chest as you slept
    Peacefully and soundlessly
    I wished that I was inside your mind to travel in your dreams
    Cherished moment,
    on my pillow...
    (memories)

    Unlike Freud, Jung did not believe that a dream is a mask for a meaning already known but deceitfully withheld from the conscious mind. In his view, dreams were communication, ideas expressed not always straightforwardly, but in the best way possible within the limits of the medium. Dreaming, in Jung's psychology, is a constructive process.
    (Jeremy Campbell (b. 1931), British journalist. Grammatical Man: Information, Entropy, Language, and Life, ch. 19, Simon & Schuster (1982).)

    Dream is not a revelation. If a dream affords the dreamer some light on himself, it is not the person with closed eyes who makes the discovery but the person with open eyes lucid enough to fit thoughts together. Dream—a scintillating mirage surrounded by shadows—is essentially poetry.
    (Michel Leiris (1901-1990), French anthropologist, author. Quoted in Roger Shattuck, Nights as Day, Days as Nights, Introduction (1961).)
