What's the difference between fantasy and dream?

Reminds me of an old joke...

Question: What's the difference between sexy and kinky?
Answer: Sexy is tickling your lover with a feather. Kinky is using the whole chicken.

A feather? Or the whole chicken?

A fantasy is the imagining of something impossible or improbable, while a dream is something strongly desired. Some say that the difference between the two is that we're consciously aware of our imagination when we fantasize but not so when we dream.

They're both important for a healthy psyche, but be careful. Don't let hyperactive fantasies squeeze out malnourished dreams.

Dreams die hard

A fantasy is like that coyote that keeps walking off the cliff before he realizes he's airborne. He might drop quickly to his demise, but he can usually be reanimated pretty quickly. Annoyingly so.When a dream dies, it dies hard. If you have only enough strength to hold onto one, hold on tight to your dreams.
