    Question "A childish dream is a deathless need"

    What do you think this means?

    It's an interesting quote.
    "Deathless need"...implying that some needs aren't deathless. Some needs die? What exactly is meant by deathless? Something that is deathless...is immortal..or forever.
    So, I guess it means..
    "A childish dream" is more than just a "childish dream"...it's a dream that will always need to be fulfilled because it is "deathless" or "forever".

    What I can't figure out is if it implies..

    "Give up your childish dreams because they are deathless"...and fulfill needs that can be fulfilled.
    or
    "Never give up your childish dreams, because they are needs, (deathless as they may be...but hey, at least you have a purpose, right?)."

    Seems like it means the dreams we have that hearken back to our youthful wishes and desires, never dies. We need it and crave it, and it can't be extinguished. It ends up growing into a deeper wish when we grow up throughout life.

    The dreams die, the need doesn't

    That is what it means

    ^this. But I dont think the spelling means the wish is going to evolve. It rather means that at some point in life, eventually it will come back. What sets the wish apart from others is his "childish nature" of because which he may be unvoiced.

    Well, finding a way to symbolically fill that need.

    Interesting, I initially interpreted the phrase a bit differently. I interpreted it as someone who has childish dreams is deep down afraid of getting older and thus closer to death.

    Hm, my first thought was that childish dreams won't really hurt anyone, as in being "deathless" as in not dying/passing away. Or that we'll always have the childless dreams and that it's a need?

    this is how i thought of it, too.

    that, and that we will always need to have the bright and beautiful and hope-filled dreams of childhood to keep spurring us on. in my mind it alludes connection to childhood self... you are the same person as who you were as a child, after all. some needs will always be the same, including your deepest motivations.
