    There are as many pillows of illusion as flakes in a snow- storm. We wake from one dream into another dream.

    When you think of ideals, you think of perfection. And when you think of perfection, you are dreaming. Now that is not so bad. After all, dreams are what make us humans. Idealism, then, is more human than sensuality, which is not a product of our dreams but of our instinct.
    (Perfection)

    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).)

    Yes, dance. Dance and dream. Dream that you're Mrs. Henry Jekyll of Harley Street, dancing with your own butler and six footmen. Dream that they've all turned into white mice and crawled into an eternal pumpkin.
