Dreams and Dreaming #20

"I could get used to anything — that is, not really get used, but somehow voluntarily consent to endure it.

I dreamed terribly, I would dream for three months at a time, shrinking into my corner…" -Fyodor Dostoevsky, Notes from Underground (Translated by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky)
