Dream Quotes from the Great Thinkers

The study of dreams has long been a fascination with many.

People often wake up puzzled by what they have dreamt. Some want to search for the meaning of what ran through their mind. As bizarre as some of the images and themes may seem, dreams are our subconscious way of working through things that are troubling us, or that are unsettled, while we sleep.

Dreams have been studied by so many individuals for years. Many books have been written explaining the symbolisms found in them.

While there is some discrepancy or multiple meanings for some of the dream symbols, most remain consistent. Understanding them can help an individual see the bigger picture and find greater meaning in their dreams.

In this respect, here are some dream quotes from some of the great – and surprising minds – of our time.

Dream Quotes from the Great Thinkers

31.) “Our dreams disturb us because they refuse to pander to our fondest notions of ourselves. The closer one looks, the more they seem to insist upon a challenging proposition: You must live truthfully. Right now. And always. Few forces in life present, with an equal sense of inevitability, the bare-knuckle facts of who we are, and the demands of what we might become.”- Marc Ian Barasch

39.) “Even thus last night, and two nights more I lay, And could not win thee, Sleep, by any stealth: So do not let me wear to-night away. Without thee what is all the morning’s wealth? Come, blessed barrier between day and day, Dear mother of fresh thoughts and joyous health!”- William Wordsworth
