Dreams
 
Dreams in their development have breath,
And tears, and tortures, and the touch of joy,
They have a weight upon our waking thoughts,
They take a weight from off our waking toils,
They do divide our being.
        Byron.—The Dream, Line 5.

Led by those waking Dreams of Thought,
That warm the young unpractis’d breast.
        Langhorne.—Owen of Carron, Verse 19.

        Like the dreams,
Children of night, of indigestion bred.
        Churchill.—The Candidate, Line 784.

But if, as morning rises, dreams are true.
        Dante.—Inferno, Canto XXVI. Line 7. Ben Jonson.—Love Restored, a song. Bruce.—Elegy, written in Spring, Verse 19.

A vision after midnight, when dreams are true.
        Horace.—Book I. Sat. 10. Page 179. Bohn’s Ed. by Buckley.

Towards dawn, the lamp now flickering, (at the time when true visions are wont to be seen.)
        Ovid.—Epi. XIX, page 219, Bohn’s Ed. by Riley.

        Like the dream
That o’ertook me at my waking hour,
This morn; and dreams they say are then divine.

At break of day, when dreams, they say, are true.
