Love this quote! Where did it come from?

I don't, unlike Yeats, request gentle treading on my dreams, but I do ask gentle treading upon my beliefs. If belief is a product of my heart, then so are dreams, and perhaps the request comes to the same thing.

Not dreams, but beliefs. Not loves, but friendships. Not oaths, but resolves. Did Horatio love Hamlet?

Dreams are belief, in the moment. Friendship is love, in the moment. An oath is resolve, in the moment. Horatio did love Hamlet. In the moment.

And whether it was for ever more or just for the moment doesn't matter. In the moment.
