„I believe that my dream has always been to become someone. To succeed in life, in the show, I did not know exactly what, but it was or singing or acting, or do cinema or theater… it was the show.“

—  Dalida French singer, actress, model and beauty pageant titleholder 1933 - 1987

Original: (fr) Je crois que mon rêve a toujours été de devenir quelqu'un. De reussir dans la vie, dans la spectacle, je ne savais pas exactement quoi, mais cette ou chante ou joue la comédie, ou faire du cinema ou du teatre... c'était le spectacle.

„I would want a dreaming machine that dreams up the most beautiful dreams and then show me exactly how to make them a reality…This is the eternal conundrum: the visualization of desires (dreams), and then the dissonance between that and reality.“

„A dream! What is a dream? And is not our life a dream?“

—  Fyodor Dostoyevsky, libro The Dream of a Ridiculous Man

Fuente: The Dream of a Ridiculous Man (1877), V
Contexto: A dream! What is a dream? And is not our life a dream? I will say more. Suppose that this paradise will never come to pass (that I understand), yet I shall go on preaching it. And yet how simple it is: in one day, in one hour everything could be arranged at once! The chief thing is to love others like yourself, that's the chief thing, and that's everything; nothing else is wanted — you will find out at once how to arrange it all. And yet it's an old truth which has been told and retold a billion times — but it has not formed part of our lives! The consciousness of life is higher than life, the knowledge of the laws of happiness is higher than happiness — that is what one must contend against. And I shall. If only everyone wants it, it can be arranged at once.

„What is life? A madness. What is life? An illusion, a shadow, a story. And the greatest good is little enough: for all life is a dream, and dreams themselves are only dreams.“

—  Pedro Calderón de la Barca, La vida es sueño

¿Qué es la vida? Un frenesí.
¿Qué es la vida? Una ilusión,
una sombra, una ficción,
y el mayor bien es pequeño;
que toda la vida es sueño,
y los sueños, sueños son.
Variant:
What is this life? A frenzy, an illusion,
A shadow, a delirium, a fiction.
The greatest good's but little, and this life
Is but a dream, and dreams are only dreams.
(trans. Roy Campbell)
Segismundo, Act II, l. 1195.

„The Dream obsessed him … but what was it?“

—  William McKeen American academic 1954

Fuente: Outlaw Journalist (2008), Chapter 8, American Dream, p. 118
Contexto: The Dream obsessed him... but what was it? Was it Horatio Alger, rags to riches, the idea that you could start with nothing and end up rolling naked in stacks of hundreds? Or was it a dream of freedom? Personal freedom... or the concept of freedom that the founders brought into the whole world?

„Let me have my dreams but not what I dream of.“

—  James Richardson American poet 1950
