Dreaming is an act of pure imagination, attesting in all men a creative power, which if it were available in waking, would make every man a Dante or Shakespeare.
Every man is his own ancestor, and every man is his own heir. He devises his own future, and he inherits his own past.
And I seemed to discern a power and meaning in the old, which the more impassioned would not allow.
