deepest needs.

"Dreaming is not merely an act of communication (or coded communication, if you like); it is also an aesthetic activity, a game of the 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."

- The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera

What a great quote. There's a text for psychology that I read (can't remember which) that says to be human is to imagine.
