Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so you shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophesy of what you shall at last unveil.
~ James Allen
“Dreams are illustrations...from the book your soul is writing about you.”
~ Marsha Norman

~ Paulo Coelho, The Pilgrimage

When we are motivated by goals that have deep meaning, by dreams that need completion, by pure love that needs expressing, then we truly live life. ~ Greg Anderson If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can transform one million realities. ~ Maya Angelou Hope is a waking dream. ~ Aristotle God's gifts put man's best dreams to shame. ~ Elizabeth Barrett Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue, and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true. ~ Lyman Frank Baum Don’t look for your dreams to come true; look to become true to your dreams. ~ Michael Beckwith Dreams are logs that feed the fire of our souls. ~ Marcela Bennett There are people who put their dreams in a little box and say, Yes, I've got dreams, of course I've got dreams. Then they put the box away and bring it out once in awhile to look in it, and yep, they're still there. These are great dreams, but they never even get out of the box. It takes an uncommon amount of guts to put your dreams on the line, to hold them up and say, How good or how bad am I? That's where courage comes in. ~ Erma Louise Bombeck Writing is nothing more than a guided dream. ~ Jorge Luis Borges Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Act as though it were impossible to fail. ~ Dorothea Brande
The world needs dreamers and the world needs doers. But above all, the world needs dreamers who do.
~ Sarah Ban Breathnach Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears. ~ Les Brown Our aspirations are our possibilities. ~ Robert Browning When you have a dream, you’ve got to grab it and never let it go. ~ Carol Burnett When we are dreaming alone it is only a dream. When we are dreaming with others, it is the beginning of reality. ~ Dom Helder Camara Each of us has an inner dream that we can unfold if we will just have the courage to admit what it is, and the faith to trust our own admission. The admitting is often very difficult. ~ Julia Cameron One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon - instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today. ~ Dale Carnegie We all have possibilities we don’t know about. We can do things we don’t even dream we can do. ~ Dale Carnegie We have become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams. ~ Jimmy Carter Dreams are today's answers to tomorrow's questions. ~ Edgar Cayce Your own words are the bricks and mortar of the dreams you want to realize. Your words are the greatest power you have. The words you choose and their use establish the life you experience. ~ Sonia Choquette When I dream, I am ageless. ~ Elizabeth Coatsworth It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting. Before a dream is realized, the Soul of the World tests everything that was learned along the way. It does this not because it is evil, but so that we can, in addition to realizing our dreams, master the lessons we have learned as we have moved toward that dream. ~ Paulo Coelho You don't need to explain your dreams.

How we are ripples out from us into the world and affects others. We have a responsibility – an ability to respond – to the world. Finding our particular way of living this responsibility, of offering who we are to the world, is why we are here. We are called because the world needs us to embody the meaning in our lives. God needs us awake. The world we live in is a co-creation, a manifestation of individual consciousness woven into a collective dream. How we are with each other as individuals, as groups, as nations and tribes, is what shapes that dream. ~ Oriah Mountain Dreamer In your heart, keep one still secret spot where dreams may go and be sheltered so they may thrive and grow. ~ Louise Driscoll No person has the right to rain on your dreams. ~ Marian Wright Edelman If we did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves. ~ Thomas Alva Edison At least once a day, allow yourself the freedom to think and dream for yourself. ~ Albert Einstein Ideas must word through the brains and the arms of good and brave men, or they are no better than dreams. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson All men and women are born, live, suffer and die; what distinguishes us one from another is our dreams, whether they be dreams about worldly or unworldly things, and what we do to make them come about…We do not choose to be born. We do not choose our parents. We do not choose our historical epoch, the country of our birth, or the immediate circumstances of our upbringing...But within this realm of choicelessness, we do choose how we live. ~ Joseph Epstein
I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge – myth is more potent than history – dreams are more powerful than facts – hope always triumphs over experience – laughter is the cure for grief – love is stronger than death.
~ Robert Fulghum It is good to dream, but it is better to dream and work. Faith is mighty, but action with faith is mightier. Desiring is helpful, but work and desire are invincible. ~ Thomas Robert Gaines When you work, you fulfill a part of earth's fondest dream assigned to you when that dream is born. ~ Kahlil Gibran To understand the heart and mind of a person, look not at what he has already achieved, but at what he aspires to. ~ Kahlil Gibran The inability to open up to hope is what blocks trust, and blocked trust is the reason for blighted dreams. ~ Elizabeth Gilbert It is difficult to say what is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow. ~ Robert H. Goddard Destiny grants us our wishes, but in its own way, in order to give us something beyond our wishes. ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Whatever you do or dream you can do – begin it. Boldness has genius and power and magic in it. ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe More important than talent, strength, or knowledge is the ability to laugh at yourself and enjoy the pursuit of your dreams. ~ Amy Grant We know not where our dreams will take us, but we can probably see quite clearly where we'll go without them. ~ Marilyn Grey Whatever you're ready for is ready for you.
~ Mark Victor Hansen
Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable. ~ Sydney J. Harris It is not your work to make anything happen. It’s your work to dream it and let it happen. Law of Attraction will make it happen. In your joy, you create something, and then you maintain your vibrational harmony with it and the Universe must find a way to bring it about. That’s the promise of Law of Attraction. ~ Abraham-Hicks Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul; the blueprints of your ultimate achievements. ~ Napoleon Hill Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything. ~ Napoleon Hill When your desires are strong enough, you will appear to possess superhuman powers to achieve ~ Napoleon Hill Tell me what you yearn for and I shall tell you who you are. We are what we reach for, the idealized image that drives our wandering. ~ James Hillman To achieve big things you have to have big dreams. ~ Conrad Hilton The things that one most wants to do are the things that are probably most worth doing. ~ Winifred Holtby Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.
~ Langston Hughes
There is nothing like a dream to create the future. ~ Victor Hugo To know, to think, to dream. That is everything. ~ Victor Hugo Never let your memories be greater than your dreams. ~ Doug Ivester It’s time to start living the life you’ve imagined. ~ Henry James If you want something you've never had, you must be willing to do something you've never done. ~ Thomas Jefferson Our aspirations are our possibilities. ~ Samuel Johnson Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart.

You are meant to work in ways that suit you, drawing on your natural talents and gifts. This work, when you find it and commit to it -- even if only as a hobby -- is the key to happiness. ~ Dennis Kimbro If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all. And so today I still have a dream. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr. The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope.

Lawrence It may be those who do most... dream most. ~ Stephen Leacock Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us, and the world will be as one. ~ John Lennon My dream is of a place and a time where America will once again be seen as the last best hope of earth, ~ Abraham Lincoln Within you right now is the power to do things you never dreamed possible. This power becomes available to you just as soon as you can change your beliefs. ~ Maxwell Maltz The Creator has not given you a longing to do what you have no ability to do. ~ Orison S. Marden Be willing to be uncomfortable. Be comfortable being uncomfortable. It may get tough, but it’s a small price to pay for living a dream.
~ Peter McWilliams
A goal is not the same as a desire, and this is an important distinction to make. You can have a desire you don't intend to act on. But you can't have a goal you don't intend to act on. ~ Tom Morris As you enter positions of trust and power, dream a little before you think. ~ Toni Morrison You block your dream when you allow your fear to grow bigger than your faith. ~ Mary Manin Morrissey That impossible dream you dreamed when you were young but got talked out of, the one you thought you outgrew, might be the key to awakening your genius. That special talent you never followed through on might be an important source of delight, the one you should commit to. That old dream might be the one thing that will bring the magic of meaning to your life. ~ Mark Victor Hansen & Barbara Nichols Dreams are necessary to life. ~ Anais Nin Dreams pass into the reality of action. From the action stems the dream again; and this interdependence produces the highest form of living. ~ Anaïs Nin Our life is composed greatly from dreams, from the unconscious, and they must be brought into connection with action. They must be woven together. ~ Anaïs Nin We are the music makers and we are the dreamers of dreams…: ~ Arthur O’Shaughnessy Baby step by baby step, you have what you need right now to start moving in the direction of your happiest dreams. ~ Marta Davidovich Ockuly

Without vision, the people will perish, and without courage and inspiration, dreams will die – the dream of freedom and peace. ~ Rosa Parks All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream. ~ Edgar Allen Poe The innovation point is the pivotal moment when talented and motivated people seek the opportunity to act on their ideas and dreams. ~ W. Arthur Porter Plant the seeds of your dreams and weed all the objections out. ~ Mary Anne Radmacher Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won. It exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours.
~ Ayn Rand
By picturing ourselves creating at our highest levels, imagining the finished product and the deep joy that comes from creating, we move closer to our dreams. Visualizing the end result from our creative effort helps us achieve it. ~ Salli Rasberry Only as high as I reach can I grow, only as far as I seek can I go, only as deep as I look can I see, only as much as I dream can I be. ~ Karen Ravn Think BIG. There are unseen forces ready to support your dreams. ~ Cheryl Richardson The only thing keeping you from what you want is your story about why you can't have it. ~ Anthony Robbins You are now at a crossroads. This is your opportunity to make the most important decision you will ever make. Forget your past. Who are you now? Who have you decided you really are now? Don't think about who you have been.

If you don't, you'll find an excuse. ~ Jim Rohn The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. ~ Eleanor Roosevelt You can't just sit there and wait for people to give you that golden dream; you've got to get out there and make it happen for yourself. ~ Diana Ross Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us. ~ Wilma Rudolph Only as high as I reach can I grow, only as far as I seek can I go. Only as deep as I look can I see, only as much as I dream can I be. ~ Karen Ryan Life is a challenge, meet it! Life is a dream, realize it! Life is a game, play it! Life is love, enjoy it! ~ Sathya Sai Baba Nothing happens unless first a dream. ~ Carl Sandburg Plant impossible gardens. Look forward to dreams. Cry during movies. Swing as high as you can on a swing set, by moonlight. Cultivate moods. Do it for love. Take lots of naps. Take moon baths. Giggle with children. Listen to old people. Entertain your inner child. Build a fort with blankets. Get wet. Hug trees.

There will always be dreams grander or humbler than your own, but there will never be a dream exactly like your own...For you are unique and more wondrous than you know!
~ Linda Staten Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities.

Discover. ~ Mark Twain Dreams come true; without that possibility, nature would not incite us to have them. ~ John Updike In my garden there is a large place for sentiment.
