D.H. Lawrence

All people dream, but not equally.
Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their mind,
Wake in the morning to find that it was vanity.

But the dreamers of the day are dangerous people,
For they dream their dreams with open eyes,
And make them come true.

    I vividly remember reading this D.H. Lawrence poem when I was a kid. It's beautiful how he differentiates between daydreamers and night dreamers, attributing power to those who dream during the day. Definitely got me thinking about my own dreams. Always a favorite of mine!
