Dreams & Wishes Quotes

 

"To make a great dream come true,
the first requirement is a great capacity to dream;
the second is persistence, a faith in the dream."
-- Aldous Huxley --


"If you dream about something all the time,
you have a responsibility to do something about it."

"A dream is a joy forever,
a possession as solid as a landed estate,
a fortune which we can never exhaust
and which gives us, year by year,
a revenue of pleasureable activity.
To have many of these,
is to be spiritually rich."
-- Robert Louis Stevenson / VIRGINIBUS PUERESQUE --


"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.
-- Henry David Thoreau --


Nearly all the dreams of humanity as found in fables of various types
-- flying, deep-sea diving, apparitions,
speech caught and transmitted,
detached from its time and source,
and many strange things that no one ever dreamed of --
have now emerged from the impossible, from the mind.
The fabulous is an article of trade."
-- Paul Valery / HISTORY & POLITICS (written in 1929)


"Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow."
-- Langston Hughes --
