In dreams | Homer / Fernando Pessoa / Franz Kafka

Max Kurzweil, The Wife of the Artist, 1912

 “There is a time for many words, and there is also a time for sleep.” 

 Homer, The Odyssey

Edouard Vuillard, In Bed, 1891 

“I’ve dreamed a lot. I’m tired now from dreaming but not tired of dreaming. 
No one tires of dreaming, because to dream is to forget, and forgetting does 
not weigh on us, it is a dreamless sleep throughout which we remain awake. 
In dreams I have achieved everything.” 

 Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet, 1982

“ Unknown ”

"But sleep? On a night like this? What an idea! Just think of how many thoughts a blanket 
smothers while one lies alone in bed, and how many unhappy dreams it keeps warm. "

Franz Kafka, Description of a Struggle, 1912
