"And if he left off dreaming about you, where do you suppose you'd be? ... You'd be nowhere. Why, you're only a sort of thing in his dream! If that there King was to wake you'd go out -- bang! -- just like a candle!"

"Hush! You'll be waking him, I'm afraid, if you make so much noise."

"Well it's no use your talking about waking him when you're only one of the things in his dream. You know very well you're not real."

For Suzanne:

who has an empress in her house.

"We recognize the Great Goddess, who represents the source of all life, in the Empress. She is the boundless power of nature continuing to bring forth new life, and the inexhaustible source stimulating our creative potential and ability to accept impulses, letting something new develop from them. She also stands for the necessity of dissolving old life structures so that new ones can be formed, and for the urge to break taboos and rise above oneself in order to fathom the mystery of life."

And one of my favorite details, her hands:

"She is holding a phallus-like lotus stem, representing masculine procreative power, with her right hand; the left one remains softly open as if it would embrace an invisible child."
