Are you wondering why I would do a blog on nightmare quotes? Perhaps you would prefer that nightmares didn’t exist? They occur to alert us to what we are repressing or fearful of; to learn more about why we have bad dreams, please read the blog Nightmares are a Gift. Below you will find twelve quotes including two from my book Learn the Secret Language of Dreams.

Quotes on Nightmares

In nightmares we can think the worst. That’s what they’re for, I guess. – Stephen King

You are the keeper of your memories. And you are the composer of your nightmares. – David J. Naiman

Nightmares are a gift because the person is being forced awake to look at an issue that they have been avoiding to find a solution. – Pamela Cummins

You learned to run from what you feel, and that’s why you have nightmares. To deny is to invite madness. To accept is to control. – Megan Chance

Nightmares are needed to help us get out of denial of a situation or work past a fear to achieve better lives. – Pamela Cummins

Never are we as honest as at night, alone with thoughts and nightmares. – Laura Lam

Which is the true nightmare, the horrific dream that you have in your sleep or the dissatisfied reality that awaits you when you awake? – Justin Alcala

Love is the most beautiful of dreams and the worst of nightmares. – Aman Jassal

I really like it when a bad dream doesn’t scare you…it inspires you instead. – Fwah Storm

When your dream turns into a nightmare, rise to the challenge and slaughter the dragons – Bangambiki Habyarimana

It’s when you tame your nightmares, that your dreams will willingly enter the corral. – Anthony T. Hincks

I love bad dreams. They remind me of the goodness of life. – Marty Rubin

Nightmares are similar to going to the dentist or scrubbing out the toilet – unpleasant, yet a necessary part of life. Instead of fearing these types of dreams: embrace them, discover the meaning, and toil through the issues.

  1. Pamela,
    I liked the blog.
    Nightmares are a collection of our fears, and they can also be so much more. The trick is to learn from them. Sometimes it is easier said than done.
    But as long as we dream, we will also continue to have nightmares.
    I use both of them for inspiration

    All the best.
    Anthony T. Hincks
