„When a child, my dreams rode on your wishes,
I was your son, high on your horse,
My mind a top whipped by the lashes
Of your rhetoric, windy of course.“
— Stephen Spender English poet and man of letters 1909 - 1995
On his father in "The Public Son of a Public Man" as quoted in TIMEmagazine (20 January 1986) http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1074981,00.html
„Oh, my love
For your name
Beside the sea
Of dwells and dreams
Where Shadows're dancing
For your glance…
The sky would chance
The granting of a dream
To the restless soul
That dwells within your heart…“
— Mike Oldfield English musician, multi-instrumentalist 1953
Song lyrics, Children of the Sun (1969)

„If you can't sleep, I'll be there in your dreams. I'll be there in your dreams if you can't sleep at all.
And in your dreams, I'll touch your cheek
And lay my head on your shoulder.

„Stress ruthlessly puts out your dreams and robs you of your happiness. It can destroy your health, lead to tensions at home and ruin your career plans. It strikes when you are not at peace or uncomfortable with aspects of your life – and pretty much anything can bring it on.“
— Nigel Cumberland British author and leadership coach 1967

„Dreams, Mr. Nyazi, are perfect ideals, complete in themselves. How can you impose them on a constantly changing, imperfect, incomplete reality? You would become a Humbert, destroying the object of your dream; or a Gatsby, destroying yourself.“

„They told us not to wish in the first place, not to aspire, not to try; to be quiet, to play nice, to shoot low and aspire not at all. They are always wrong. Follow your dreams. Make your wishes. Create the future. And above all, believe in yourself. That is the lesson of Babylon 5.“
— J. Michael Straczynski American writer and television producer 1954
From the Babylon 5 Calendar (1998).
Neighbours, dear friends, ye dream, ye dream : awake!
Gaze not on me with sadly wondering eyes,
I only bid you to your actual wish.
My voice is but the voice of your own hearts.“

The London Literary Gazette (7th March 1835)
Translations, From the German
„I would suggest that you tell yourselves that you will henceforth be able to remember dreams from the deeper levels of your personality, and you should find that you will be able to do so. You can also tell yourselves when you wish that you will give special attention to the nature of time and space, as these appear within your dreams. You will discover then upon awakening that many perceptions concerning time and space within the dream state will remain within you.“

„Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me.“
— Cass Elliot American singer 1941 - 1974
"Dream a Little Dream of Me" (1931), was one of Cass Elliot's biggest hits but the lyrics by Gus Kahn were written many years before her definitive rendition; the music by Fabian Andre & Wilbur Schwandt. More information on how she came to record it is provided at NPR: "Dream a Little Dream of Me" ranked as one of the 100 most important American musical works of the 20th century http://www.npr.org/programs/specials/vote/100list.html#D.
