Today’s Quotation: Lewis Carroll on reality as dream


Is all our Life, then, but a dream
By Lewis Carroll in Sylvie and Bruno.

Is all our Life, then, but a dream
Seen faintly in the golden gleam
Athwart Time’s dark resistless stream?

Bowed to the earth with bitter woe,
Or laughing at some raree-show,
We flutter idly to and fro.

Man’s little Day in haste we spend,
And, from its merry noontide, send
No glance to meet the silent end.
