Paul Bourguet ~ On Dreams
"Dreams are but lies, says an old maxim; but when our last hour is at hand, and but a few brief minutes are left to what was I, pale lights that are fast growing dim, who can tell by what mark to distinguish you, O memories of the actual life, from you, O mirages from the dream life." -
Paul Bourguet

Painting is Sadko, 1876 by Ilja Repin
