A dream about writing with a quill suggests a connection to the past, perhaps a longing for simpler times or a need to communicate more authentically. But it's often a dream image with multiple nuances.

It may also symbolize wisdom, as quills are often associated with scholars and philosophers. Seeing someone else use a quill could indicate that you feel someone in your life is not communicating honestly or directly, or it may be a representation of a figure of wisdom or authority.

A quill is often a complex and intriguing dream experience to really clarify with certainty. To say confidently, I would have to really dig deep into the dreamer's background and current circumstances.

Dreaming of writing with a quill may indicate a subconscious desire to express oneself more eloquently or meaningfully.

Likewise — It could also be a kind of a latent wish to delve into the depths of one's psyche, akin to Freud's concept of the "unconscious". The quill, a tool of antiquity, may symbolize the timeless nature of human emotions and experiences. Observing another use a quill might suggest a projection of these desires onto another, or perhaps a feeling of being misunderstood or misinterpreted. It could also be a reflection of a sense of admiration or envy towards someone who embodies the qualities associated with the quill - wisdom, eloquence, and depth.0
