Happiness in this world, when it comes, comes incidentally. Make it the object of pursuit, and it leads us a wild-goose chase, and is never attained. Follow some other object, and very possibly we may find that we have caught happiness without dreaming of it.
I think a lot of stuff I find funny is from day dreaming.
I find myself dreaming of doing normal things - like staying home and washing dishes.
I've lost track of the number of people who want to be writers but never actually write anything. Talking about writing, dreaming about writing, can be very fun, but it won't get a book written. You've got to write.
I would be very, very uncomfortable at teaching, at dreaming to teach, people things.
Our minds aren't bound by a chronological corset. When thinking and dreaming, past, present and future are mixed up. That's also possible for a writer.
Our dreams are firsthand creations, rather than residues of waking life. We have the capacity for infinite creativity; at least while dreaming, we partake of the power of the Spirit, the infinite Godhead that creates the cosmos.
Dreaming of a tomorrow, which tomorrow, will be as distant then as 'tis today.
A man must dream a long time in order to act with grandeur, and dreaming is nursed in darkness.
Only the dreamer shall understand realities, though in truth his dreaming must be not out of proportion to his waking.
It's an appeal as old as America and its presidency: This is an extraordinary country populated by hard-working, big-dreaming, freedom-loving people graced by God when they're not pulling themselves up by the bootstraps.
The world of men is dreaming, it has gone mad in its sleep, and a snake is strangling it, but it can't wake up.
My mind wanders terribly. I'm not wholly annoyed by my daydreaming as it has been immense use to me as regards imaginative thought, but it doesn't help when it comes to concentration. And writing needs concentration - lots of it.
I was dreaming of Craig Carton.
I give everything to my work, and I like complex roles, characters that aren't obvious. I've been very lucky so far, and I'm dreaming of working with directors like Jane Campion, Susanne Bier and the Dardennes. But the gods will decide.
