Some men see things as they are and
say, "Why?" I dream of things that never were and say, "Why
George Bernard Shaw
I have learned, that if one advances confidently
in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the
life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected
in common hours.
Dreams pass into the reality of action. From the
actions stems the dream again; and this interdependence
produces the highest form of living.
To accomplish great things, we must not only act,
but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
Your vision will become clear only when you look
into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks
Nothing happens unless first a dream.
When we are dreaming alone it is only a dream.
When we are dreaming with others, it is the beginning of
The work goes on, the cause endures, the hope
still lives and the dreams shall never die.
The inability to open up to hope is what blocks
trust, and blocked trust is the reason for blighted dreams.
Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we
lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all,
is a form of planning.
Democracy is only a dream: it should be put in

Dreams are the touchstones of our character.
In life, many thoughts are born in the course of
a moment, an hour, a day. Some are dreams, some visions.
Often, we are unable to distinguish between them. To some,
they are the same; however, not all dreams are visions. Much
energy is lost in fanciful dreams that never bear fruit. But
visions are messages from the Great Spirit, each for a
different purpose in life. Consequently, one person's vision
may not be that of another. To have a vision, one must be
prepared to receive it, and when it comes, to accept it.
Thus when these inner urges become reality, only then can
visions be fulfilled. The spiritual side of life knows
everyone's heart and who to trust. How could a vision ever
be given to someone to harbor if that person could not be
trusted to carry it out. The message is simple: commitment
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you
must hammer and forge yourself one.

move the hearts of men.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
