visions and dreams...

It is only by introducing the young
to great literature, drama and music
and to the excitement of
great science

that we open to them the possibilities
that lie within the human spirit
enable them
to see

in the arms of wonder...


lucid dreams
are useful

but they all have a
sense of wonder
about them -

if you must sleep
through a
third of your life

why should you

dream land...

Where sunless rivers weep

Their waves into the deep,

She sleeps a charmed sleep:

Awake her not.

Led by a single star,

She came from very far

To seek where shadows are

Her pleasant lot.

She left the rosy morn,

She left the fields of corn,

For twilight cold and lorn

And water springs.

Through sleep, as through a veil,

She sees the sky look pale,

And hears the nightingale

That sadly sings.

Rest, rest, a perfect rest

Shed over brow and breast;

Her face is toward the west,

The purple land.

She cannot see the grain

Ripening on hill and plain;

She cannot feel the rain

Upon her hand.

Rest, rest, for evermore

Upon a mossy shore;

Rest, rest at the heart's core

Till time shall cease:

Sleep that no pain shall wake;

Night that no morn shall break

Till joy shall overtake

Her perfect peace.

For that hire syster fayrer was than she,
He taketh hire in his hond and forth goth he
To shipe, and as a traytour stal his wey,
Whil that this Adryane aslepe lay.'

my refuge...my pleasure...

my dreams were all my own
i accounted for them to nobody
they were my refuge when annoyed
my purest pleasure when free -

the child dreams your achievements...

your visions
your dreams,
as they are the
children of your soul;
the blueprints
of your
ultimate achievements.

Our life
is composed
greatly from
from the

and they
must be
brought into

we are the stuff of dreams...

Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits, and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp'd tow'rs, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve,
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on;
and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.

the dream shadow...

That which the dream shows is
the shadow of such wisdom
as exists in man,
even if during his waking state
he may know nothing about it....
We do not know it because
we are fooling away our time
with outward and perishing things,
and are asleep in regard
to that which is real
within ourself.

bring me your dreams...

Bring me all of your dreams,
You dreamer,
Bring me all your
Heart melodies
That I may wrap them
In a blue cloud-cloth
Away from the too-rough fingers
Of the world.
