Quote of the Day:
Lately, I’ve been re-reading psychology books and I have felt singularly defrauded. All of them discuss the mechanisms of dreams or the subjects of dreams, but they do not mention, as I had hoped, that which is so astonishing, so strange — the fact of dreaming.
~ Jorge Luis Borges
