the well written - milan kundera

Dreaming is not merely an act of communication, it is also an aesthetic
activity, a game of imagination, a game that is a value in itself.  Our dreams 
prove that to imagine—to dream about things that have not happened—is 
among mankind’s deepest needs.  Herein lies the danger.  If dreams were 
not beautiful, they would quickly be forgotten.  But Tereza kept coming back 
to her dreams, running through them in her mind, turning them into legends.   
Thomas lived under the hypnotic spell cast by the excruciating beauty of 
Tereza’s dreams.
