Respectfully Quoted: A Dictionary of Quotations. 1989.
Dana Burnet (18881962)
The dreamer dies, but never dies the dream, Though Death shall call the whirlwind to his aid, Enlist mens passions, trick their hearts with hate, Still shall the Vision live! Say nevermore That dreams are fragile things. What else endures Of all this broken world save only dreams!
DANA BURNET, Who Dreams Shall Live, lines 1116, Poems, p. 209 (1915).
