A daydream is a meal at which images are eaten. Some of us are gourmets, some gourmands, and a good many take their images precooked out of a can and swallow them down whole, absent-mindedly and with little relish. ~W.H. Auden

How many of our daydreams would darken into nightmares, were there a danger of their coming true! ~Logan Pearsall Smith, Afterthoughts

He does not need opium. He has the gift of reverie. ~Anais Nin

To lose one’s self in reverie, one must be either very happy, or very unhappy. Reverie is the child of extremes. ~Antoine Rivarol

Sit in reverie and watch the changing color of the waves that break upon the idle seashore of the mind. ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When ideas float in our mind without any reflection or regard of the understanding, it is that which the French call revery, our language has scarce a name for it. ~John Locke

I was trying to daydream, but my mind kept wandering. ~Steven Wright

All religions will pass, but this will remain: simply sitting in a chair and looking in the distance. ~V.V. Rozanov

People don’t come to church for preachments, of course, but to daydream about God. ~Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

If you’ve never stared off in the distance, then your life is a shame. ~Adam Duritz, “Mrs. Potter’s Lullaby,” performed by Counting Crows

Under every full moon, a woolgathering world idles. ~Lorraine Skylark

Sometimes, in a summer morning, having taken my accustomed bath, I sat in my sunny doorway from sunrise till noon, rapt in reverie. ~Henry David Thoreau

One man’s daydreaming is another man’s day. ~Grey Livingston

You get ideas from daydreaming. You get ideas from being bored. You get ideas all the time. The only difference between writers and other people is we notice when we’re doing it. ~Neil Gaiman

Television is simply automated daydreaming. ~Lee Loevinger

I live my daydreams in music. ~Albert Einstein

It is a good idea to be alone in a garden at dawn or dark so that all its shy presence may haunt you and possess you in a reverie of suspended thought. ~James Douglas

Thought is the labor of the intellect, reverie is its pleasure. ~Victor Hugo

Reverie is not a mind vacuum. It is rather the gift of an hour which knows the plenitude of the soul. ~Gaston Bachelard
