Book Cover

Dreams. - On the rare occasions when our dreams succeed and achieve perfection - most dreams are bungled - they are symbolic chains of scenes and images in place of a narrative poetic language; they circumscribe our experiences or expectations or situations with such poetic boldness and decisiveness that in the morning we are always amazed at ourselves.

Friedrich Nietzsche (1880)1

'We have no dreams at all or interesting ones. We should learn to be awake the same way - not at all or in an interesting manner.' quote from Friedrich Nietzsche (1887) on

We have no dreams at all or interesting ones. We should learn to be awake the same way - not at all or in an interesting manner.

Friedrich Nietzsche (1887)2

Keeping a dream diary [will] help you remember your dreams. As you record more dreams, you should start remembering more dreams. As you remember more you will probably find your recollections become gradually clearer and more detailed.
