Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.
Anais Nin

A man's dreams are an index to his greatness.

I knew from the start if I left a woman I really loved -- the Great Society -- in order to fight that bitch of a war in Vietnam then I would lose everything at home. My hopes my dreams.

To all, to each, a fair good night, And pleasing dreams, and slumbers light.

Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself... You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Kahlil Gibran

No lower can a man descend than to interpret his dreams into gold and silver.

The victory of success is half won when one gains the habit of setting goals and achieving them. Even the most tedious chore will become endurable as you parade through each day convinced that every task, no matter how menial or boring, brings you closer to fulfilling your dreams.
Og Mandino

Life being what it is, one dreams of revenge.
Paul Gauguin

We must look for ways to be an active force in our own lives. We must take charge of our own destinies, design a life of substance and truly begin to live our dreams.

How many of our daydreams would darken into nightmares if there seemed any danger of their coming true
Logan Pearsall Smith

We all dream we do not understand our dreams, yet we act as if nothing strange goes on in our sleep minds, strange at least by comparison with the logical, purposeful doings of our minds when we are awake.
Erich Fromm

Dreams - A microscope through which we look at the hidden occurrences in our soul.
Erich Fromm

To die, to sleep --To sleep, perchance to dream, ay there's the rub,For in that sleep of death what dreams may comeWhen we have shuffled off this mortal coil,Must give us pause there's the respectThat makes calamity of so long life.
William Shakespeare

Thoughts are but dreams till their effects be tried.
William Shakespeare

To be, or not to be that is the question Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them To die to sleep No more and by a sleep to say we end The heartache and the thousand natural shocks That flesh is heir to,--'t is a consummation Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep To sleep perchance to dream ay, there's the rub For in that sleep of death what dreams may come, When we have shuffled off this mortal coil, Must give us pause there's the respect That makes calamity of so long life For who would bear the whips and scorns of time, The oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely, The pangs of despised love, the law's delay, The insolence of office and the spurns That patient merit of the unworthy takes, When he himself might his quietus make With a bare bodkin who would fardels bear, To grunt and sweat under a weary life, But that the dread of something after death, The undiscover'd country from whose bourn No traveller returns, puzzles the will And makes us rather bear those ills we have Than fly to others that we know not of Thus conscience does make cowards of us all And thus the native hue of resolution Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought, And enterprises of great pith and moment With this regard their currents turn awry, And lose the name of action.
William Shakespeare

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

Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly.
Langston Hughes

I have spread my dreams under your feet

People who insist on telling their dreams are among the terrors of the breakfast table.
Max Beerbohm

Reality is wrong. Dreams are for real.
Tupac Shakur

One of the most adventurous things left us is to go to bed. For no one can lay a hand on our dreams.
E. V. Lucas

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

Ideologies separate us. Dreams and anguish bring us together.
Eugene Ionesco

Science and technology revolutionize our lives, but memory, tradition and myth frame our response. Expelled from individual consciousness by the rush of change, history finds its revenge by stamping the collective unconsciousness with habits, values, expectations, dreams. The dialectic between past and future will continue to form our lives.
Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.

All of our dreams can come true -- if we have the courage to pursue them.
Walt Disney

I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.
Thomas Jefferson

The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up.

Eric Anderson

In dreams and in love there are no impossibilities.
Janos Arnay

We must stop talking about the American dream and start listening to the dreams of Americans.
Reubin Askew

Imagination has brought mankind through the dark ages to its present state of civilization. Imagination led Columbus to discover America. Imagination led Franklin to discover electricity. Imagination has given us the steam engine, the telephone, the talking-machine, and the automobile, for these things had to be dreamed of before they became realities. So I believe that dreams--daydreams, you know, with your eyes wide open and your brain machinery whizzing--are likely to lead to the betterment of the world. The imaginative child will become the imaginative man or woman most apt to invent, and therefore to foster, civilization.
L. Frank Baum

A boy is a magical creature you can lock him out of your workshop, but you can't lock him out of your heart. You can get him out of your study, but you can't get him out of your mind. Might as well give up he is your captor, your jailer, your boss and your master a freckled-faced, pint-sized, cat-chasing bundle of noise. But when you come home at night with only the shattered pieces of your hopes and dreams, he can mend them like new with two magic words Hi, Dad
Alan Marshall Beck

Good plans shape good decisions. That's why good planning helps to make elusive dreams come true.
Lester R Bittel

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 Bombeck

Dream manfully and nobly, and thy dreams shall be prophets.
Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge That myth is more potent than history That dreams are more powerful than facts That hope always triumphs over experience That laughter is the only cure for grief And I believe that love is stronger than death.
Robert

Dreams, ideas, and plans not only are an escape, they give me purpose, a reason to hang on.
Steven Patrick Callahan

We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams.

Belva Davis

What is life An illusion, a shadow, a story, And the greatest good is little enough for all life is a dream, and dreams themselves are only dreams.
Pedro Calderon de la Barca

In your heart, keep one still, secret spot where dreams may go and sheltered so may thrive and grow.

All of us failed to match our dreams of perfection. So I rate us on the basis of our splendid failure to do the impossible.
William Faulkner

More important than talent, strength, or knowledge is the ability to laugh at yourself and enjoy the pursuit of your dreams.
Amy Grant

I don't possess a lot of self-confidence. I'm an actor so I simply act confident every time I hit the stage. I am consumed with the fear of failing. Reaching deep down and finding confidence has made all my dreams come true.
Arsenio Hall

A friend drops their plans when you're in trouble, shares joy in your accomplishments, feels sad when you're in pain. A friend encourages your dreams and offers advice--but when you don't follow it, they still respect and love you.
Doris Wild Helmering

Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul the blue prints of your ultimate accomplishments.
Napolean Hill

We've removed the ceiling above our dreams. There are no more impossible dreams.
Libby Houston

When your dreams tire, they go underground and out of kindness that's where they stay.
Libby Houston

Ships at a distance have every man's wish on board. For some they come in with the tide. For others they sail forever on the horizon, never out of sight, never landing until the Watcher turns his eyes away in resignation, his dreams mocked to death by Time. That is the life of men.
Zora Neale Hurston

We've removed the ceiling above our dreams. There are no more impossible dreams.
Jesse Louis Jackson

Carl Gustav Jung

The work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives and the dreams shall never die.
Edward M. Kennedy

Over the years, we have come to identify quality in a college not by whom it serves but by how many students it excludes. Let us not be a sacred priesthood protecting the temple, but rather the fulfillers of dreams.
Robert J. Kibbee

In youth the human body drew me and was the object of my secret and natural dreams. But body after body has taken away from me that sensual phosphorescence which my youth delighted in. Within me is no disturbing interplay now, but only the steady currents of adaptation and of sympathy.
Haniel Long

We seek the comfort of another. Someone to share our dreams and to share in the life we choose. Someone to help us through the neverending attempt to understand ourselves. And in the end, someone to comfort us along the way.
Marlin Finch Lupus

The finest gift you can give anyone is encoragement. Yet, almost no one gets the encouragement they need to grow to their full potential. If everyone received the encouragement they need to grow, the genius in most everyone would blossom and the world would produce abundance beyond the wildest dreams. We would have more than one Einstein, Edison, Schweitzer, Mother Theresa, Dr. Salk and other great minds in a century.
Sidney Madwed

Dreams have as much influence as actions.
Stephane Mallarme

To the degree we're not living our dreams, our comfort zone has more control of us than we have over ourselves.
Peter McWilliams

I am years gone from my family and miles away ... but they raid by telephone with jarring suddenness they have the cyclic constancy of a mortgage and they are inevitable and relentless, like the erosion of my remaining youth. Like certain frightening dreams, my family returns.
Jerrold Mundis

Peace can be reached through meditation on the knowledge which dreams give. Peace can also be reached through concentration upon that which is dearest to the heart.
Patanjali

You are amazing. You are a shooting star. I will follow you forever no distance is too far. Never take for granted your abilty to fly. At times stop and rest, but quickly get back up before your dreams pass you by.
Eric Pio

If you don't make your dreams a reality, reality will take away your dreams.
Eric Pio

Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams.Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in,but with what it is still possible for you to do.
Pope John XXIII

I've lived to bury my desires, And see my dreams corrode with rust Now all that's left are fruitless fires That burn my empty heart to dust.
Alekandr Sergeyevick Pushkin

But if you build your life on dreams it's prudent to recall a man with moonlight in his hands has nothing there at all.
Don Quixote

I have had dreams and I have had nightmares, but I have conquered my nightmares because of my dreams.

If an eye never falls asleep, All dreams will by themselves cease If the mind retains its absoluteness, The ten thousand things are of one suchness.
Seng-T'San

Our task is to provide an education for the kind of kids we have... Not the kind of kids we used to have... Or want to have... Or the kids that exist in our dreams.
Mary Kay Utech

Where there is life, there is hope. Where there are hopes, there are dreams. Where there are vivid dreams repeated, they become goals. Goals become the action plans and game plans that winners dwell on in intricate detail, knowing that achievement is almost automatic when the goal becomes an inner commitment. The response to the challenges of life -- purpose -- is the healing balm that enables each of us to face up to adversity and strife.
Denis Watley

I think we dream so we don't have to be apart so long. If we're in each other's dreams, we can play together all night. - Calvin
Bill Watterson

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.
Woodrow Wilson

The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams.

They say dreams are the windows of the soul--take a peek and you can see the inner workings, the nuts and bolts.
Henry Bromel

Dreams that do come true can be as unsettling as those that don't.
Brett Butler

Dream no small dreams for they have no power to move the hearts of men.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Dreams are postcards from our subconscious, inner self to outer self, right brain trying to cross that moat to the left. Too often they come back unread return to sender, addressee unknown. That's a shame because it's a whole other world out there--or in here depending on your point of view.
Dennis Koenig

What is it about possessing things Why do we feel the need to own what we love, and why do we become jerks when we do We've all been there-- you want something, to possess it. By possessing something you lose it. You finally win the girl of your dreams, the first thing you do is change her. The little things she does with her hair, the way she wears her clothes or the way she chews her gum. Pretty soon what you like, what you changed, what you don't like, blends together like a watercolor in the rain.
Jeff Melvoin

It has never been my object to record my dreams, just to realize them.
Man Ray

It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.
