Carl Jung: Looking outside and looking in


“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.”
~ Carl Jung, psychologist.

“All men dream, but not equally. those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.” -T.E. Lawrence

Jefferson Carter: There’s no such thing as a stupid question


by Jefferson Carter

All the good questions have been asked.
Am I my brother’s keeper?
Are you my pork chop?
What’s a guy gotta do to get a drink around here?
I’ve been dreaming about my brother,
who lived on Crete. I dragged him out of the surf,
dead drunk, 150-pound carp, but hairier
& muttering every pariah’s secret,
“I’m a creep. I’m a creep.”
Do dreams begin responsibilities?
Frere Jacques, Frere Jacques, dormez vous?
A squalid rented room,
the furniture shrouded in wax paper.
Who’s to blame? A stupid question.
Brother Jon, Jon, my brother, are you sleeping?

Paulo Coelho: Killing our dreams

The first symptom of the process of our killing our

dreams is the lack of time. The busiest people I have known in my life

always have time enough to do everything. Those who do nothing are

always tired and pay no attention to the little amount of work they are

required to do.

– Paulo Coelho.

Jeremy Irons: Memories and dreams

“We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they’re called memories. Some take us forward, they’re called dreams.”

Paulo Coelho: Experience

We all need to understand that experience is agony and ecstasy at the same time. Pain and joy holding hands. And pain is not suffering, but part of the Good Fight we must fight in the name of our dreams.

– Paulo Coelho.
