„But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams beneath your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.“

—  William Butler Yeats, The Wind Among the Reeds (1899), Context: Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths, Enwrought with the golden and silver light, The blue and the dim and the dark cloths Of night and light and half-light, I would spread the cloths under your feet: But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams beneath your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams. He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven http://poetry.poetryx.com/poems/1499/

„I'll let you be in my dreams if I can be in yours.
I said that.“

—  Bob Dylan, Lyrics:1962 2001
Song lyrics, Talkin' World War III Blues, Context: Half of the people can be part right all of the time, Some of the people can be all right part of the time, But all the people can't be all right all the time. I think Abraham Lincoln said that. I'll let you be in my dreams if I can be in yours. I said that.

„I have never looked for dream in reality or reality in dream. I have allowed my imagination free play, and I have not been led astray by it.“

„I started working with my dreams, because I'm not so censored when I use dream material.“

—  Kathy Acker American novelist, playwright, essayist, and poet 1947 - 1997
Context: I'm starting to worry about self-censorship — that I might be internalizing some shit. I might be writing what people expect me to write, writing from that place where I might be ruled by economic considerations. To overcome that, I started working with my dreams, because I'm not so censored when I use dream material. And I'm working at trying to find a kind of language where I won't be so easily modulated by expectation. I'm looking for what might be called a body language. One thing I do is stick a vibrator up my cunt and start writing — writing from the point of orgasm and losing control of the language and seeing what that's like.
