Dreams

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. "
- Eleanor Roosevelt


To accomplish great things, we must dream as well as act.
Anatole France (1844 - 1924)

Hope is a waking dream.
Aristotle (384 BC - 322 BC),


He felt that his whole life was some kind of dream and he sometimes wondered whose it was and whether they were enjoying it.
Douglas Adams (1952 - 2001), "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"

The wisest men follow their own direction.
Euripides (484 BC - 406 BC)

Keep true to the dreams of thy youth.
Friedrich von Schiller (1759 - 1805)


Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)

Dreams surely are difficult, confusing, and not everything in them is brought to pass for mankind. For fleeting dreams have two gates: one is fashioned of horn and one of ivory. Those which pass through the one of sawn ivory are deceptive, bringing tidings which come to nought, but those which issue from the one of polished horn bring true results when a mortal sees them.
Homer (800 BC - 700 BC), The Odyssey

We need men who can dream of things that never were.
John F. Kennedy (1917 - 1963), speech in Dublin, Ireland, June 28, 1963

Dreams come true. Without that possibility, nature would not incite us to have them.
John Updike (1932 - )


Now, I say to you today my friends, even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: - 'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.'
Martin Luther King Jr. (1929 - 1968), Speech at Civil Rights March on Washington, August 28, 1963

I've come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that's as unique as a fingerprint - and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.
Oprah Winfrey (1954 - ), O Magazine, September 2002

The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success but significance - and then even the small steps and little victories along your path will take on greater meaning.
Oprah Winfrey (1954 - ), O Magazine, September 2002

The aim of life is self-development. To realize one's nature perfectly - that is what each of us is here for.
Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900)

It hurts to find out that what you wanted doesn't match what you dreamed it would be.
Randy K. Milholland, Something Positive Comic, 09-07-04


Dreaming permits each and every one of us to be quietly and safely insane every night of our lives.
William Dement


The things that one most wants to do are the things that are probably most worth doing.
Winifred Holtby, O Magazine, September 2002
