„I believe that my dream has always been to become someone. To succeed in life, in the show, I did not know exactly what, but it was or singing or acting, or do cinema or theater… it was the show.“

—  Dalida French singer, actress, model and beauty pageant titleholder 1933 - 1987

Original: (fr) Je crois que mon rêve a toujours été de devenir quelqu'un. De reussir dans la vie, dans la spectacle, je ne savais pas exactement quoi, mais cette ou chante ou joue la comédie, ou faire du cinema ou du teatre... c'était le spectacle.

„Jokes can be noble. Laughs are exactly as honorable as tears. Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion, to the futility of thinking and striving anymore.“

—  Kurt Vonnegut, buch Palm Sunday

"Palm Sunday", a sermon delivered at St. Clement's Church, New York City (ndg), originally published in The Nation as "Hypocrites You Always Have With You" (ndg)
Palm Sunday (1981)
Kontext: Jokes can be noble. Laughs are exactly as honorable as tears. Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion, to the futility of thinking and striving anymore. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward — and since I can start thinking and striving again that much sooner.

„I would want a dreaming machine that dreams up the most beautiful dreams and then show me exactly how to make them a reality…This is the eternal conundrum: the visualization of desires (dreams), and then the dissonance between that and reality.“

„A dream! What is a dream? And is not our life a dream?“

—  Fyodor Dostoyevsky, buch The Dream of a Ridiculous Man

Quelle: The Dream of a Ridiculous Man (1877), V
Kontext: A dream! What is a dream? And is not our life a dream? I will say more. Suppose that this paradise will never come to pass (that I understand), yet I shall go on preaching it. And yet how simple it is: in one day, in one hour everything could be arranged at once! The chief thing is to love others like yourself, that's the chief thing, and that's everything; nothing else is wanted — you will find out at once how to arrange it all. And yet it's an old truth which has been told and retold a billion times — but it has not formed part of our lives! The consciousness of life is higher than life, the knowledge of the laws of happiness is higher than happiness — that is what one must contend against. And I shall. If only everyone wants it, it can be arranged at once.

„What are books but tangible dreams? What is reading if it is not dreaming? The best books cause us to dream; the rest are not worth reading.“

„Some dreams tell us what we wish to believe. Some dreams tell us what we fear. Some dreams are of what we know though we may not know we knew it. The rarest dream is the dream that tells us what we did not know.“
