If ever I did dream of such a matter, abhor me.
Shakespeare.—Othello, Act I. Scene 1. (Iago to Roderigo.)

And mourn, in lamentation deep,
How life and love are all a dream.
Burns.—The Lament, Verse 1.

Let fancy still my sense in Lethe steep;
If it be thus to dream still let me sleep.
Shakespeare.—Twelfth Night, Act IV. Scene 1. (Sebastian.)

And though it be a waking dream,
Yet let it like an odour rise;
To all the senses here,
And fall like sleep upon their eyes,
Or music in their ear.
Ben Jonson.—The Vision of Delight.

I’ll dream no more—by manly mind
Not even in sleep is will resigned.
My midnight orisons said o’er,
I’ll turn to rest, and dream no more.—
Scott.—Lady of the Lake, end of Canto I.
