Life is a dream ll

’tis true, therefore let us restrain
this savage, wild condition,
this fury and ambition,
lest we fall upon some dream;
which surely will have to be,
for in this peculiar world
to live and to dream are one.
Dreams the king, and believing
he’s king – in body and crown – ,
governs, commands and decrees…
What is life but such a frenzy,
what is life but an illusion,
a moving shadow, a fiction?
The greatest good is but little,
for all of life is a dream
and dreams are nothing but dreams.
(from ‘La Vida es sueño’, by Calderón de la Barca – my own translation)
