What is daydream?

Famous quotes containing the word daydream:

    A daydream is a meal at which images are eaten. Some of us are gourmets, some gourmands, and a good many take their images precooked out of a can and swallow them down whole, absent-mindedly and with little relish.
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)

    [Children] need time to stare at a wall, daydream over a picture book, make mud pies, kick a ball around, whistle a tune or play the kazoo—to do the things today’s adults had time to do when they were growing up.
    Leslie Dreyfous (20th century)
