    I like

    Somnia saeculum sunt

    I have been criticized in this forum before for my use of saeculum for the English "world". While not classical, this is in my opinion perfectly sound (albeit medieval /ecclesiastical) Latin. And here it alliterates. But if one insists on classical forms one might prefer

    Somnia mundus sunt

    The non-agreement in number of the subject and the predicate nominative in this phrase seems a little more glaring in the Latin than in the English, but I see no way around that.
