„We had a beautiful dream and that was all.“

The interest of my son is the only guide I have, and whatever happiness I could achieve by being free of this place I cannot consent to separate my self from him. I could not have any pleasure in the world if I abandoned my children.I do not even have any regrets.
Marie Antoinette to the Chevalier Jarjayes on his persuading her to escape alone from the Tower; Lettres, II. p. 433; also quoted in Marie Antoinette: The Journey (2001) by Antonia Fraser, ISBN 0307277747.

„We and it and all together flashing through the starry spaces
In a tempest dream of beauty lighting up the place of places.“

—  George William Russell Irish writer, editor, critic, poet, and artistic painter 1867 - 1935

The Nuts of Knowledge (1903)
Kontext: We and it and all together flashing through the starry spaces
In a tempest dream of beauty lighting up the place of places.
Half our eyes behold the glory: half within the spirit's glow
Echoes of the noiseless revels and the will of beauty go.
By a hand of fire uplifted—to her star-strewn palace brought,
To the mystic heart of beauty and the secret of her thought:

„A people's dream died there. It was a beautiful dream.“

—  Black Elk Oglala Lakota leader 1863 - 1950

Speaking of the Massacre at Wounded Knee.
Kontext: I did not know then how much was ended. When I look back now from this high hill of my old age, I can still see the butchered women and children lying heaped and scattered all along the crooked gulch as plain as when I saw them with eyes still young. And I can see that something else died there in the bloody mud, and was buried in the blizzard. A people's dream died there. It was a beautiful dream.
And I, to whom so great a vision was given in my youth, — you see me now a pitiful old man who has done nothing, for the nation's hoop is broken and scattered. There is no center any longer, and the sacred tree is dead.

W.B. Yeats foto

„Who dreamed that beauty passes like a dream?“

—  W.B. Yeats Irish poet and playwright 1865 - 1939

St. 1
The Rose (1893), The Rose of the World
Kontext: Who dreamed that beauty passes like a dream?
For these red lips, with all their mournful pride,
Mournful that no new wonder may betide,
Troy passed away in one high funeral gleam,
And Usna's children died.

Edgar Allan Poe foto

„All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.“

—  Edgar Allan Poe, kniha A Dream Within a Dream

"A Dream Within a Dream" (1849).
Kontext: You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

„Truth is more beautiful than dreams“

—  Henri Barbusse French novelist 1873 - 1935

Light (1919), Ch. XXIII - Face To Face
Kontext: What is there within us to-night? What is this sound of wings? Are our eyes opening as fast as night falls? Formerly, we had the sensual lovers' animal dread of nothingness; but to-day, the simplest and richest proof of our love is that the supreme meaning of death to us is — leaving each other.
And the bond of the flesh — neither are we afraid to think and speak of that, saying that we were so joined together that we knew each other completely, that our bodies have searched each other. This memory, this brand in the flesh, has its profound value; and the preference which reciprocally graces two beings like ourselves is made of all that they have and all that they had.
I stand up in front of Marie — already almost a convert — and I tremble and totter, so much is my heart my master: —
"Truth is more beautiful than dreams, you see."

„We had a very lovely place [in Ascona with his life-companion Marianne Werefkin ] with a garden directly on the lake. It was on the edge of Ascona. Next to it began the Campagna [landscape], and this Campagna was enchantingly beautiful, like a dream.“

—  Alexej von Jawlensky Russian painter 1864 - 1941

quote from Jawlensky's memoirs, 1936/41: Lebenserinnerungen (Memories) p. 119; as cited in Exile, the Avant-Garde, and Dada: Women Artists Active in Switzerland during the First World War http://www.jstor.org/stable/10.1163/j.ctt1w8h0q1.10, by Isabel Wünsche, p. 66
Jawlensky was very pleased with this move from Zurich to Ascona; Werefkin arranged this family's move after Jawlensky fell gravely ill with the Spanish flu. A few years later Jawlensky would leave here.
1936 - 1941
