And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,

Upon whom the pale moon gleams;
Yet we are the movers and shakers,
Of the world forever, it seems.”

And then in solitude, in the opium den of remembrance, the possibility of pleasure again.”

Yes, I wanted to say. Anything. But I couldn't find my lips.
"Carlisle!" the angel called, agony in his perfect voice. "Bella, Bella, no, oh please, no, no!" And the angel was sobbing tearless, broken sobs.
The angel shouldn't weep, it was wrong. I tried to find him, to tell him everything was fine, but the water was so deep, it was pressing on me, and I couldn't breathe.”
Stephenie Meyer, Twilight

Yet this absurd fantasy, without a shred of evidence to bolster it, pays all the expenses of the oldest, largest, and least productive industry in all history.”

Joseph Conrad
“It seems to me I am trying to tell you a dream--making a vain attempt, because no relation of a dream can convey the dream-sensation, that commingling of absurdity, surprise, and bewilderment in a tremor of struggling revolt, that notion of being captured by the incredible which is of the very essence of dreams...No, it is impossible; it is impossible to convey the life-sensation of any given epoch of one's existence--that which makes its truth, its meaning--its subtle and penetrating essence. It is impossible. We live, as we dream-alone...”
Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness and the Congo Diary

Fyodor Dostoyevsky, White Nights and Other Stories

H.G. Wells
