Dreams use the language and imagery of making life, but their meanings are personal. Like most contemporany psychoanalysts, I do not believe in universal dream symbols, that stairs signify one thing and trees or kites another. Dreams are stories made by and for he dreamer, and each dreamer has his own folds to open and knots to untie.
Siri Hustvedt, in The Shaking Woman or A History Of My Nerves
