Daydreaming Quotes

A.D. Aliwat

“The mind does some of its best wandering when the body’s moving forward. This is true on a bike, or on foot, or on a plane, train, or in an automobile, anything. There’s just something about steady onward motion that’s uniquely conducive to shedding any hang-ups and inviting real mental latitude. And, it seems, conversely, the mind is best at plunging forward, at submitting itself to something and following a fixed path, when the body is stationary. In a quiet room between sixty-eight and seventy-four degrees, wearing clothes that are snug but comfortable, sitting upright. Free of any distraction. Unlike out here, the room has no exigencies, so the mind makes up its own. Work, it says. Or watch, read. Dedicate me to something specific. A mind narrows in on that thing then moves resolutely toward it, doing its best to ward off anything that might interrupt or alter its course; thought is a train, consciousness a stream…”
― A.D. Aliwat, In Limbo

    Quotations about Daydreaming



    But yet, in the airy realm of dreams
    Where all my riches be,
    I enter into the heritage
    That is else denied to me;
    I have but to close my eyes to find
    The Eden I never saw...
    ~Elizabeth Anne Chase Akers Allen, "My Air–castle," The Sunset–song and other Verses, 1902


    It's really splendid to imagine you are a queen. You have all the fun of it without any of the inconveniences and you can stop being a queen whenever you want to, which you couldn't in real life. ~Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea, 1909


    Don't quit your day dream. ~Internet meme


    ...to be able to bound away from trouble and annoyance to some Castle in the Air, and for a moment defy the foe.... the imaginative aeronaut has such a charming glimpse of possibilities that a ray of the sunlight above the clouds lingers brightening his eye even when he descends to prosy earth again. ~Thomas Clark Henley, A Handful of Paper Shavings, 1861


    Heart of mine, why art thou dreaming!
    Dreaming through the weary day,
    While life's precious hours are wasting,
    Fast, and unimproved, away?
    ~Mary Ann H. Dodd Shutts (1813–1878), "The Dreamer"  #infj

    The changing color of the waves that break
    Upon the idle seashore of the mind!
    ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


    When Ideas float in our Mind, without any Reflection or Regard of the Understanding, it is that, which the French call Reverie; our Language has scarce a Name for it... ~John Locke


    ...he sat musing, pen in hand, or roamed about the gay city to get new ideas and refresh his mind, which seemed to be in a somewhat unsettled state that winter. He did not do much, but he thought a great deal, and was conscious of a change of some sort going on in spite of himself. ~Louisa May Alcott, Little Women, "Learning to Forget," 1869


    Sneer as you may, ye unideal lovers of facts and cents, I wouldn't give up the power and the pleasure of building Castles in the Air — I would not sell you the delight of hope, the enjoyment of anticipation, or the luxury of day-dreaming for the price of a kingdom. ~Thomas Clark Henley, A Handful of Paper Shavings, 1861  [a little altered —tg]


    To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,–
    One clover, and a bee,
    And revery.
    The revery alone will do
    If bees are few.
    ~Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)


    Who cares for the bees!
    I will take my ease,
    Dream and dream as long as I please;
    Hour by hour,
    With love-wings fanning my sweet, sweet flower!
    Gather your honey, and hoard your gold,
    Through spring and summer, and hive through cold!
    I will cling to my flower till it is mould,
    Breathe one sigh
    And die!
    ~Harriet McEwen Kimball (1834–1917), "Day-Dreaming," c.1868


    ...that little wilding place of mine which I have worn with bypaths as I wandered there in dream. ~Muriel Strode (1875–1964), My Little Book of Prayer, 1904


    True, the rude breeze of actual life often enough disperses in a moment the last fleecy cloud of marble of our castellated palace in the air, but Imagination lives on... ~Thomas Clark Henley, A Handful of Paper Shavings, 1861


    You are growing wiser than I am, and nipping in the bud fancies which I let blossom... ~Emily Dickinson, letter to Annie P. Strong, 1851


    I am thankful for my dream — that elusive butterfly I have chased all my life — and thankful that it was elusive enough to last a lifetime. ~Robert Brault, rbrault.blogspot.com


    She seemed to be profusely watering
    a garden of tender images with her glance;
    is it liberty or slavery
    not to change the pose of indolence?
    ~Rainer Maria Rilke (1875–1926), translated from the French by A. Poulin, Jr., 1979


    People don't come to church for preachments, of course, but to daydream about God. ~Kurt Vonnegut

    If you've never stared off into the distance
    Then your life is a shame...

    Under every full moon, a woolgathering world idles. ~Lorraine Skylark, @ReadyOwl, July 2009 winner of The Quote Garden create your own quote contest on Twitter, @quotegarden


    I came from a Land of honey and cream
    Where all that one did was to sleep and dream.
    And the dreams I treasured were bright and gay
    About budding trees and the flowers in May...
    ~Gertrude Tooley Buckingham (1880–1971), "My 84th Birthday," 1964  [The "Land" she's referring to is actually the time before her birth, although to my mind I think of the world of INFJ daydreaming when I see this verse.—tεᖇᖇ¡·g]


    There were times when I could not afford to sacrifice the bloom of the present moment to any work, whether of the head or hands. I love a broad margin to my life. Sometimes, in a summer morning, having taken my accustomed bath, I sat in my sunny doorway from sunrise till noon, rapt in reverie, amidst the pines and hickories and sumachs, in undisturbed solitude and stillness, while the birds sang around or flitted noiseless through the house, until by the sun falling in at my west window, or the noise of some traveller's waggon on the distant highway, I was reminded of the lapse of time. I grew in those seasons like corn in the night, and they were far better than any work of the hands would have been. They were not time subtracted from my life, but so much over and above my usual allowance. ~Henry David Thoreau


    daydreamers
    breathe dreams
    exhaling rings of reverie
    wisps of fantasied smoke
    ~Terri Guillemets, "Infj oxygen," 2005


    Ah, the things we would do if we could — especially in the secure knowledge that we can't. ~Robert Brault, rbrault.blogspot.com


    A certain amount of reverie is good, like a narcotic in discreet doses. It soothes the fever, sometimes high, of the brain at work, and produces in the mind a soft and fresh vapour, which corrects the too angular contours of pure thought, fills up the gaps and intervals here and there, binds them together, and blunts the sharp corners of ideas. ~Victor Hugo


    BABYLON — where I go dreaming
    When I weary of to-day,
    Weary of a world grown grey.
    ~Ralph Hodgson


    One man's daydreaming is another man's day. ~Terri Guillemets


    Thought is the labour of the intellect, reverie is its pleasure. To replace thought by reverie is to confound poison with nourishment. ~Victor Hugo


    If not interrupted, an INFJ can stay in a fantasy-trance for hours. ~Terri Guillemets


    Reverie is not a mind vacuum. It is rather the gift of an hour which knows the plenitude of the soul. ~Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Reverie, 1960

    Not only should we encourage kids to daydream, but also to jump-in and build those dreams. Dreaming is largely lost among adults drowning in self-imposed realities.
