“The virtuous man contents himself with dreaming that which the wicked man does in actual life.”
Sigmund Freud, The Interpretation of Dreams

Sigmund Freud, The Interpretation of Dreams

Sigmund Freud, The Interpretation of Dreams
“Dream's evanescence, the way in which, on awakening, our thoughts thrust it aside as something bizarre, and our reminiscences mutilating or rejecting it—all these and many other problems have for many hundred years demanded answers which up till now could never have been satisfactory.”
Sigmund Freud, The Interpretation of Dreams
“The sheer size too, the excessive abundance, scale, and exaggeration of dreams could be an infantile characteristic. The most ardent wish of children is to grow up and get as big a share of everything as the grown-ups; they are hard to satisfy; do not know the meaning of ‘enough.”
Sigmund Freud, The Interpretation of Dreams
“The medical profession is justly conservative. Human life should not be considered as the proper material for wild experiments.”
Sigmund Freud, The Interpretation of Dreams
“The dream has a very striking way of dealing with the category of opposites and contradictions. This is simply disregarded. To the dream 'No' does not seem to exist. In particular, it prefers to draw opposites together into a unity or to represent them as one. Indeed, it also takes the liberty of representing some random element by its wished-for opposite, so that at first one cannot tell which of the possible poles is meant positively or negatively in the dream-thoughts.”
Sigmund Freud, The Interpretation of Dreams
“Human life should not be considered as the proper material for wild experiments.”
Sigmund Freud, The Interpretation of Dreams
“ان الذي نظنه لغزاً في الحلم , لابد أن يكون ذكرى واقعية منسية !”
Sigmund Freud, The Interpretation of Dreams
“A large number of observers acknowledge that dream life is capable of extraordinary achievements—at any rate, in certain fields ("Memory").”
Sigmund Freud, The Interpretation of Dreams
“Quite often they are lines of thought starting out from more than one centre, but not without their points of contact; almost invariably one train of thought is accompanied by its contradictory opposite, associatively linked to it by contrast.”
Sigmund Freud, The Interpretation of Dreams
“The dream shows how recollections of one’s everyday life can be worked into a structure where one person can be substituted for another, where unacknowledged feelings like envy and guilt can find expression, where ideas can be linked by verbal similarities, and where the laws of logic can be suspended.”
Sigmund Freud, The Interpretation of Dreams
“اننا في الغالب ندور في أحلامنا حول الموضوعات التي كان لها أكبر الأثر في وجداننا.. وهذا يدل على أن مشاعرنا لها دخل كبير في خلق أحلامنا.. فمن كان طموحا دارت أحلامه حول أكاليل الغار.. ومنكان عاشقا دارت أحلامه حول معبودة قلبه”
سيغموند فرويد, The Interpretation of Dreams
“إن كل إنسان يتخذ لنفسه في أحلامه من السلوك مايوافق طبعه, فالعفيف عفيف, والطائش طائش, والحسود حسود, وهكذا... وكل ماهناك أن النوم يخلع عنا قناع التصنع والرياء, فتبدو حقيقتنا الباطنة على ماهي عليه.. فيصارح كل منا نفسه بما لا يجسر على التصريح به وهو في حال اليقظة
- شوبنهاور”
سيغموند فرويد, The Interpretation of Dreams
“therapeutic”
Sigmund Freud, The Interpretation of Dreams
“But since the downfall of the mythological hypothesis an interpretation of the dream has been wanting. The conditions of its origin; its relationship to our psychical life when we are awake; its independence of disturbances which, during the state of sleep, seem to compel notice; its many peculiarities repugnant to our waking thought; the incongruence between its images and the feelings they engender; then the dream's evanescence, the way in which, on awakening, our thoughts thrust it aside as something bizarre, and our reminiscences mutilating or rejecting it—all these and many other problems have for many hundred years demanded answers which up till now could never have been satisfactory. Before all there is the question as to the meaning of the dream, a question which is in itself double-sided. There is, firstly, the psychical significance of the dream, its position with regard to the psychical processes, as to a possible biological function; secondly, has the dream a meaning—can sense be made of each single dream as of other mental syntheses?”
Sigmund Freud, The Interpretation of Dreams
“By exposing the hidden dream-thoughts, we have confirmed in general that the dream does continue the motivation and interests of waking life, for dream-thoughts are engaged only with what seems to be important and of great interest to us.”
Sigmund Freud, The Interpretation of Dreams
