Why would I want a life of dreams?

“Live the life you’ve dreamed.” – Thoreau

How can you live the life you’ve dreamed
before dreaming of living a life? But what
is dreaming without living but a lifeless
dream, a dream dead before given breath?
We love our dreams. Dreams are hopes,
and we hope for what we love. Live the
life you’ve loved, and dream of love. Why
should we live before we dream but love
before we can live? Love is the law of life,
and dreams look to the future. But the future
is tomorrow, and love is today.
