David Lynch


"When you sleep, you don`t control your dream. I like to dive into a dream world that I've made, a world I chose and that I have complete control over."

"I would love to be in that state [of a waking dream] all day long, but you have to have some quiet. The world is getting louder every year, but to sit and dream is a beautiful thing."

"A lot of people assume I have very strange dreams, but I've only had one dream that affected a film. I don't dream much at night. Most everything is daydreams."

"In my dream, I see these fantastic paintings that were done by somebody else. And I wish that I had painted them. And I wake up, and after a while the impression wears off. I say, wait a minute, those are my paintings. I dreamt them; they're mine. Then I can't remember what they were."
