    What do these two sentences mean?

    Such is the moment that all greats traverse.
    Such is the stuff of dreams.

    I can't sure whether "such" in the above sentences mean something or the sentences are inverted.
    Belows are sentences I transformed two sentences into other form if the sentences are inverted.
    All greats traverse such the moment.
    The dreams is such a stuff.

    Am I right??

    Try to see it as "Such as this is the stuff of dreams", said in reference to something or to a situation. (Such as this = something just like this)
