Thoughts for Thursday--Dreams and Nightmares + Blog Tour Stops

Today's Blog Tour Stop is a Guest Post on my deviation from contemporary New Adult at Take Me Away. What do you think of it?

Thoughts for Thursday

Thoughts for Thursday is a new meme hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

This week's theme is Dreams and Nightmares!

"Literature boils with the madcap careers of writers brought to the edge by the demands of living on their nerves, wringing out their memories and their nightmares to extract meaning, truth, beauty."--Herbert Gold
"I have had dreams and I have had nightmares, but I have conquered my nightmares because of my dreams."--Jonas Salk
"My sleep wasn't peaceful, though. I have the sense of emerging from a world of dark, haunted places where I traveled alone."--Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay
"There are many who don't wish to sleep for fear of nightmares. Sadly, there are many who don't wish to wake for the same fear."--Richelle E. Goodrich, Danelions, The Disappearance of Annabelle Fancher
"Nightmares exist outside of logic, and there's little fun to be had in explanations; they're antithetical to the poetry of fear."--Stephen King
"Your nightmares follow you like a shadow, forever."--Aleksander Hemon, The Lazarus Project
