Famous Quotes about dreams

J. Conrad Guest famous quote #192

I used to think Romeo and Juliet was the greatest love story ever written. But now that Im middle-aged I know better. Oh Romeo certainly thinks he loves his Juliet. Driven by hormones he unquestionably lusts for her. But if he loves her its a shallow love. You want proof Soon after meeting her for the first time he realizes he forgot to ask her for her name. Can true love be founded upon such shallow acquaintance I dont think so. And at the end when he thinks shes dead he finds no comfort in living out the remainder of his life within the paradigm of his love at least keeping alive the memory of what they had briefly shared even if it was no more than illusion or more accurately hormonal. Yes those of us watching events unfold from the darkness know she merely lies in slumber. But does he seek the reason for her life-like appearance No. Instead he accuses Death of amorousness convinced that the lean abhorred monster endeavors to keep Juliet in her present state cheeks flushed so that she might cater to his own dissolute desires. But does Romeo hold her in his arms one last time and feel the warmth of her blood still coursing through her veins Does he pinch her to see if she might awaken Does he hold a mirror to her nose to see if her breath fogs it Once twice three times a no. His alleged love is so superficial and so selfish that he seeks to escape the pain of loss by taking his own life. Thats not love but infatuation. Had they wedJuliet bearing many children bonding growing together the masks of the star-struck teens they once were long ago cast away basking in the love born of a lifetime togetherand she died of natural causes would Romeo have been so moved to take his own life or would he have grieved properly for her loss and not just his own.J.

Alexandra Adornetto quote #254 from Halo

Love you Xavier said just before he drifted back to sleep.Love you more I said playfully.Not a chance Xavier said fully awake now. Im bigger I can contain more love.Im smaller therefore my love particles are more compressed which means I can fit more in.Xavier laughed. That argument makes no sense. Overruled.Im just basing it on how much I miss you when youre not around I countered.How can you possibly know how much I miss you he said. Have you got some sort of built-in miss-o-meter that can give us a readingIm a girl of course I have a built-in miss-o-meter.

David Levithan quote #442 from The Lover's Dictionary

abstraction n.Love is one kind of abstraction. And then there are those nights when I sleep alone when I curl into a pillow that isnt you when I hear the tiptoe sounds that arent yours. Its not as if I can conjure you up completely. I must embrace the idea of you instead.
