Paolo Coelho The Alchemist.jpg

It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.

Taken from the The Alchemist by Brazilian writer Paulo Coelho. Originally published in 1988, the ethereal novel has sold over 65 million copies and been translated into 56 different languages.

Line(s) of the Day #Inception

Dreams feel real while we’re in them. It’s only when we wake up that we realize something was actually strange.

Dominic Cobb (Leonardo Di Caprio) in the brilliantly thought-provoking science fiction heist film Inception (2010). Directed by Christopher Nolan, the film won four Academy Awards, raked in over $820 million and is considered a hugely imaginative modern masterpiece. I’m a huge fan of the English writer/director. You can also find other films of his on my blog, with The Dark Knight, Memento and The Prestige.

Tangled

Rapunzel: I’ve been looking out of a window for eighteen years, dreaming about what I might feel like when those lights rise in the sky. What if it’s not everything I dreamed it would be?
Flynn Rider: It will be.
Rapunzel: And what if it is? What do I do then?
Flynn Rider: Well,that’s the good part I guess. You get to go find a new dream.

Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi in the animated retelling of Rapunzel in Tangled (2011).

William Butler Yeats

But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Taken from the poem ‘He wishes for the cloths of Heaven’ by W.B. Yeats (1899)
