Definition of Reveries

Reveries

  1. of Revery
Immense power is acquired by assuring yourself in your secret reveries that you were born to control affairs.
Andrew Carnegie

I undertake the same project as Montaigne, but with an aim contrary to his own: for he wrote his Essays only for others, and I write my reveries only for myself.
Jean-Jacques Rousseau

The reveries of youth, in which so much energy is wasted, are the yearnings of a Spirit made for what it has not found but must forever seek as an Ideal.
William Ellery Channing

Both mind and heart when given up to reveries and dreaminess, have a thousand avenues open for the entrance of evil.
Charles Simmons

Indolence, of course, is an absolutely crucial part of the creative process: you do not find poets sitting in rows in cavernous word factories, staring at screens. They are rather to be found lolling on the sofa or strolling through the groves, nursing their melancholic temperaments and losing themselves in extended reveries.
Tom Hodgkinson
