"Dreams are extremely important. You can’t do it unless you imagine it."
"Happy are those who dream dreams and are willing to pay the price to make them come true."
"Keep your heart open to dreams. For as long as there's a dream, there is hope, and as long as there is hope, there is joy in living."
"Yesterday is but a vision, and tomorrow is only a dream. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a dream of hope."
I can never decide whether my dreams are the result of my thoughts, or my thoughts the result of my dreams.
"We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter's evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.
"The indispensable first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: decide what you want."
"A civilization is as great as its dreams, and its dreams are dreamt by artists."
"Toil, feel, think, hope; you will be sure to dream enough before you die, without arranging for it."
No one should negotiate their dreams. Dreams must be free to flee and fly high. No government, no legislature, has a right to limit your dreams. You should never agree to surrender your dreams.
Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.
"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours."
"How many of our daydreams would darken into nightmares, were there a danger of their coming true!"
"Hold fast to dreams for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly."
"Dream tonight of peacock tails, Diamond fields and spouter whales. Ills are many, blessing few, But dreams tonight will shelter you."
"Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or condition, there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born."
"Dreaming permits each of and every one of us to be quietly and safely insane every night of our lives."
So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.
Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.
"We should show life neither as it is or as it ought to be, but only as we see it in our dreams."
"However vague they are, dreams have a way of concealing themselves and leave us no peace until they are translated into reality, like seeds germinating underground, sure to sprout in their search for the sunlight."
"We do not really feel grateful toward those who make our dreams come true; they ruin our dreams."
Some men see things as they are and say, "Why?" I dream of things that never were and say, "Why not?"
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.
The work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives and the dreams shall never die.
