    confused about sentences

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I'm confused about the two sentences. They are ' Dreams are the things that were on our mind during the day which are still there at night' and ' Dreams are the things that were on our mind during the day and are still there at night'. I can't decide which one is more suitable or more natural. So, please help me to work it out.

    Yours,
    Ne Lynn

    You may want to recheck your sentences. They are identical.

    Neither is really good. I'd say:
    Dreams are the things that were on our mind during the day and which are still there at night.
    (I'm not sure why Soup is claiming that your sentences are identical).
