A dream within a dream

“For my own part, I have never had a thought which I could not set down

in words with even more distinctness than that with which I conceived it.

There is, however, a class of fancies of exquisite delicacy which are not

thoughts, and to which as yet I have found it absolutely impossible to

adapt to language. These fancies arise in the soul, alas how rarely.

Only at epochs of most intense tranquillity, when the bodily and mental

health are in perfection. And at those weird points of time, where the

confines of the waking world blend with the world of dreams. And so I

captured this fancy, where all that we see, or seem, is but a dream within

a dream.”
