„The first few days I felt trapped in a constant twilight of vertigo, like in the dream where you're suddenly falling… only I was constantly falling. In moments of fitful sleep I was aware of the dim possibility that I would wake up, truly wake up, and this would not have happened.“

—  Джо Байден, 2000s, Promises to Keep (2008), Page 80

„What falls away is always. And is near.
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.
I learn by going where I have to go.“

—  Theodore Roethke, The Waking
The Waking (1953), The Waking, Context: This shaking keeps me steady. I should know. What falls away is always. And is near. I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow. I learn by going where I have to go.

I wake up crying.
You're making rain,
And you're just in reach,
When you and sleep escape me.“

„What surprises you, if a dream taught me this wisdom, and if I still fear I may wake up and find myself once more confined in prison? And even if this should not happen, merely to dream it is enough. For this I have come to know, that all human happiness finally ceases, like a dream.“

—  Pedro Calderón de la Barca, Life is a Dream
La vida es sueño (Life is a Dream), ¿Qué os espanta, si fue mi maestro un sueño, y estoy temiendo, en mis ansias, que he de despertar y hallarme otra vez en mi cerrada prisión? Y cuando no sea, el soñarlo sólo basta; pues así llegué a saber que toda la dicha humana, en fin, pasa como sueño. Segismundo, Act III, l. 1114.
