We live for our dreams.

Status : Unsolved

Took me a little while to find this one, which scrolled by on Twitter.  It’s not Shakespeare (at least, not in that form), but I’m trying to figure out a valid source.

Here’s a pointer to Henry James, circa 1864.  That doesn’t mean he was first to use the expression, though.

The full quote, as James uses it:

We live for our dreams – but meanwhile, we live by our wits.
