dreamers of the day are dangerous

Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that all was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, and make it possible.

Interesting, that reads much like the similar quote by Poe:

“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.”
