In Memoriam to my great friends and companions who are now in kitty heaven, a quote from the Chinese philosopher Zhuang Zi:

 

梦饮酒者,旦而哭泣。

梦哭泣者,旦而田猎。

方其梦也,不知其梦也。

梦之中又占其梦焉。

觉而后知其梦也。

且有大觉,而后知此其大梦也。

 

He who dreams of wine finds himself weeping during the day.
He who dreams of crying finds himself hunting in the fields during the day.
Within the dream he knows not that he is dreaming.
He dreams of having a dream.
Only upon waking does he realize that it was all a dream.
Only upon the Great Awakening does he find that it was all a Great Dream.
[My translation]
