—  Henri Barbusse French novelist 1873 - 1935
Context: He who would dig right down to the truth must simplify; his faith must be brutally simple, or he is lost. Laugh at the subtle shades and distinctions of the rhetoricians and the specialist physicians. Say aloud: "This is what is," and then, "That is what must be."

„Only the dreamer shall understand realities, though, in truth, his dreaming must not be out of proportion to his waking!“

—  Margaret Fuller American feminist, poet, author, and activist 1810 - 1850
Context: Who sees the meaning of the flower uprooted in the ploughed field? The ploughman who does not look beyond its boundaries and does not raise his eyes from the ground? No — but the poet who sees that field in its relations with the universe, and looks oftener to the sky than on the ground. Only the dreamer shall understand realities, though, in truth, his dreaming must not be out of proportion to his waking! "Free Hope" p. 127.
