For ships are safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for.

Steve Forbes
I knew what it was to yearn for a life so distant it seemed that it had never been anything more than a dream.

Frances Densmore
I think if you are truly convinced of why you’re writing something, if it’s a strong enough dream of yours to share this vision and see it realized, you can almost always find a way motivate yourself, to keep going back to the drawing board and trying new things and approaches.
Diane Drake
I certainly have opportunities many can only dream of – but in most ways Im a typical girl in her 20s trying to forge a career and represent herself in what can sometimes seem rather strange circumstances. One of the most attractive has been the chance to publish Celebrate.
Pippa Middleton
The single aim of my life is that every child is:
free to be a child,
free to grow and develop,
free to eat, sleep, see daylight,
free to laugh and cry,
free to play,
free to learn, free to go to school, and above all, free to dream.
Kailash Satyarthi
What if a dawn of a doom of a dream bites this universe in two, peels forever out of his grave, and sprinkles nowhere with me and you?
e. e. cummings
The Mother Tantra says that if one is not aware in vision, it is unlikely that one will be aware in behavior. If one is not aware in behavior, one is unlikely to be aware in dream. And if one is not aware in dream, then one is unlikely to be aware in the bardo after death.

Francesca Lia Block
From the beginning of my Reformation I have asked God to send me neither dreams, nor visions, nor angels, but to give me the right understanding of His Word, the Holy Scriptures; for as long as I have God’s Word, I know that I am walking in His way and that I shall not fall into any error or delusion.
Martin Luther
Downsizing budgets may be necessary, but downsizing dreams is a decision to be disappointed.
William J. Clinton
The superiority of the dreamer is that dreaming is much more practical than living, and that the dreamer extracts from life a much vaster and varied pleasure than the action man. In better and more direct words, the dreamer is the real action man.
Fernando Pessoa
Come, every frustum longs to be a cone, And every vector dreams of matrices. Hark to the gentle gradient of the breeze: It whispers of a more ergodic zone.
Stanislaw Lem
I’ve worked over four dozen nine-to-five jobs before taking the chance to chase my dream of wanting to become an actor and filmmaker. Growing up in Brooklyn and Harlem, working at jobs like the bus company were great. I had benefits, a great salary, and security. But it wasn’t my dream.
Malcolm Goodwin
I want my little girl to tell me who she is so I can encourage her and not impose my desires for her on her life. I want her to dream big and to know that if she is willing to earn it, she can have anything – and become anything.
Salma Hayek
Both the dream state and Soul Travel are doors to the same spiritual worlds.
Harold Klemp
Why is it, my shadow-striding friend, that we don’t fear dreams? We lose consciousness, lose control, things happen with no apparent logic and abiding by no apparent rules…. We don’t fear dreams, but we do fear madness, and death terrifies us.
Brent Weeks
Sometimes when things are particularly bad, my brain will give me a happy dream.
Suzanne Collins
I have a theory that movies operate on the level of dreams, where you dream yourself.
Meryl Streep
Man’s first expression, like his first dream, was an aesthetic one. Speech was a poetic outcry rather than a demand for communication. Original man, shouting his consonants, did so in yells of awe and anger at his tragic state, at his own self-awareness and at his own helplessness before the void.
Barnett Newman
I think the film [Dream of Life] is life-affirming.
Patti Smith
Last night I fell asleep in a satellite dish. My dreams were broadcast all over the world.
Steven Wright
I am a living witness, that if you are brave enough to dream it, it CAN happen
Eric Thomas
The a priori method is distinguished for its comfortable conclusions. It is the nature of the process to adopt whatever belief weare inclined to, and there are certain flatteries to the vanity of man which we all believe by nature, until we are awakened from our pleasing dream by rough facts.
Charles Sanders Peirce
We all have possibilities we don’t know about. We can do things we don’t even dream we can do. It’s only when necessity faces us that we rise to the occasion and actually do the things that hitherto have seemed impossible.

When you find yourself in the thickness of pursuing a goal or dream, stop only to rest. Momentum builds success.
Suzy Kassem
When you’re dreaming, you don’t know it’s a dream. You might even interpret a dream in your dream – and then wake up and realize it was all a dream. Perhaps a great awakening will reveal this to be a dream as well.
My dream was to be in the NBA. I wasn’t really focused on being a star player on a team. I just wanted to make it to the NBA. I’ve been blessed for the opportunities to be in the Finals, been in the playoffs ever since I’ve been in the NBA.
James Harden
I think, that if I touched the earth, It would crumble; It is so sad and beautiful, So tremulously like a dream.
Dylan Thomas
We should never, never be afraid or ashamed about dreams. The dreams won’t all come true; we won’t always make it; but where there is no vision a people perish. Where people have no dreams and no hopes and aspirations, life becomes dull and a meaningless wilderness.
Tommy Douglas
I remember being young in the 1960s. We had a great sense of the future, a great big hope. This is what is missing in the youth today. This being able to dream and to change the world.
Bernardo Bertolucci
Most individuals work much harder to hang on to what they have than to take the necessary risk to shoot for their dreams.

Salvador Dali
It’s been a dream to work with Netflix because they don’t have any pressure from advertisers.
Bill Burr
Man would not be man if his dreams did not exceed his grasp… If I remember the sunflower forest it is because from its hidden reaches man arose. The green world is his sacred center. In moments of sanity he must still seek refuge there.
Loren Eiseley
Believe it or not, but even when I’m sleeping, I’m dreaming about meeting fans

Never let discouraging people and discouraging situations talk you out of your dream.
Joel Osteen
Soon will set in the fitful weather, with fierce gales and sullen skies and frosty air, and it will be time to tuck up safely my roses and lillies and the rest for their winter sleep beneath the snow, where I never forget them, but ever dream of their wakening in happy summers yet to be.
Celia Thaxter
You need to have a dream, a goal, and you must be willing to work hard.
Jim Valvano
Growing up, I always had my dreams set on being an actor, so I looked up to Julia Roberts, Audrey Hepburn. I also look up to Kate Winslet and RenГ©e [Zellweger] and Cate Blanchett…and Diane Keaton – she’s a genius. I think it’s very inspiring to see these women attack such complex roles.

Ralph Lauren
Love is the only passion which includes in its dreams the happiness of someone else.
Mary Karr
People need dreams, there’s as much nourishment in them as food.
Dorothy Gilman
The center of every man’s existence is a dream. Death, disease, insanity, are merely material accidents, like a toothache or a twisted ankle. That these brutal forces always besiege and often capture the citadel does not prove that they are the citadel.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Often, the worst way to become prisoner of a system is to have a dream that things may turn better, there is always the possibility of change. Because it is precisely this secret dream that keeps you enslaved to the system.
Slavoj ЕЅiЕѕek
But my dreaming self refuses to be consoled. It continues to wander, aimless, homeless, alone. It cannot be convinced of its safety by any evidence drawn from my waking life.
Margaret Atwood
Make every day count.
Make every hour count.
Make every minute count.
And don’t stop until you have exercised your full potential, realizing your impossible dream and fulfilling your total destiny to become the person that you, and only you , are capable of being.
Mary Kay Ash
That’s why children look so beautiful because they are yet full of hope, full of dreams, and they have not yet known frustration.
The Eternal Kansas City song came from a dream sequence. It was actually kind of weird. I had this dream about a Kansas City type of thing while I was up at Stevie Winwood’s place near Cheltenham, in Britain. I went into this small town and I was walking along and this dream thing was still in my head.
Van Morrison
This is why I decided to work with Nike, too, because it is even more mass-market than Givenchy and could make entry-price shoes and make people dream to be part of the journey.
Riccardo Tisci
We all have our own life to pursue, our own kind of dream to be weaving, and we all have the power to make wishes come true, as long as we keep believing.
Louisa May Alcott
Caught between the longing for love, and the struggle for the legal tender, where the sirens sing and the church bells ring, and the junk man pounds his fender. Where the veterans dream of the fight, fast asleep at the traffic light, and the children solemnly wait for the ice cream vendor.
Jackson Browne
All she wanted was to be a little girl, to be efficiently taken care of by some yielding yet superior power, stupider and steadier than herself. It seemed that the only lover she had ever wanted was a lover in a dream
F. Scott Fitzgerald
I’m so excited [to be Miss USA]. It’s a dream come true.
Nia Sanchez
Poet, never chase the dream. Laugh yourself and turn away. Mask your hunger, let it seem Small matter if he come or stay; But when he nestles in your hand at last, Close up your fingers tight and hold him fast.
Robert Graves
To this day, some of my closest friends say, ‘Gaga, you know, everything’s great. You’re a singer; your dreams have come true.’ But, still, when certain things are said to you over and over again as you’re growing up, it stays with you and you wonder if they’re true.
Lady Gaga
I have memories of clouds whisking by while sitting in the pushchair on the roof of my parents’ flat. I loved it! I just loved staring at the clouds and dreaming away.
Benedict Cumberbatch
Success is never an accident. It typically starts as imagination, becomes a dream, stimulates a goal, grows into a plan of action – which then inevitably meets with opportunity. Don’t get stuck along the way.
Dan Miller
How wrong it is for a woman to expect the man to build the world she wants, rather than to create it herself.
Anais Nin
Not much happens without a dream. And for something great to happen, there must be a great dream. Behind every great achievement is a dreamer of great dreams. Much more than a dreamer is required to bring it to reality; but the dream must be there first.
Robert K. Greenleaf
I don’t remember my dreams. I’m one of those weird people. I know there are tricks and things you can do, but I never remember my dreams.
Jayma Mays
Dreams are rough copies of the waking soul Yet uncorrected of the higher will, So that men sometimes in their dreams confess An unsuspected, or forgotten, self; -Since Dreaming, Madness, Passion, are akin In missing each that salutory rein Of reason, and the grinding will of man.
Pedro Calderon de la Barca
I want people who go through tough times, hard times, or didn’t have everything right-things didn’t fall in their lap or go in their favor-to know that they can still achieve their dream and go to the highest of the highs.

Well, it has been my dream since I was very little to be able to sing, dance and act all in one project so in Make It Pop I was able to do that all that.

Jim Rohn
See your life as a giant adventure. Keep pushing the envelope, and remember that every dream starts off small.
Robin Sharma
Nothing which is at all times and in every way agreeable to us can have objective reality. It is of the very nature of the real that it should have sharp corners and rough edges, that it should be resistant, should be itself. Dream-furniture is the only kind on which you never stub your toes or bang your knee.
C. S. Lewis
It’s very difficult to follow our dreams, but it’s even more difficult to forget them.
Arjun Rampal

Dreams, they’re what sets us apart from being mere a brain and a body.
Juliette Lewis
If America could be, once again, a nation of self-reliant farmers, craftsmen, hunters, ranchers, and artists, then the rich would have little power to dominate others. Neither to serve nor to rule: That was the American dream.
Edward Abbey
An entrepreneur is someone who dares to dream the dreams and is foolish enough to try to make those dreams come true.

I secretly liked acting, but I wanted to play football. It was an enormous dream.

When my dreams showed signs
of becoming
politically correct
no unruly images
escaping beyond borders

then I began to wonder

If the time comes and your dream doesn’t seem worth it, then maybe it was the wrong dream.
Aprilynne Pike
You say ‘believe in your dreams’, I say that I believe in YOU.
Jared Leto
Dare to dream… and when you dream, dream big.
Henrietta Szold
It’s not all about love. That’s half of it… The other half is about that moment you have with yourself when you’re looking in the mirror, and you just go, ‘Oh man. I’m going to compromise my dreams, get fat, sick, old and die someday. I kind of want to have someone around for that.’
Marc Maron
There is no possibility of remembering what has been found and understood, and later repeating it to oneself. It disappears as a dream disappears. Perhaps it is all nothing but a dream.

I’m really living my dream.
Boban Marjanovic
The new blueprint is designed to accelerate that remembering, like we are awakening from a dream. That’s its purpose. The initiations will anchor the new blueprint, and the integration of that, with full alignment to that frequency.
Christine McCormick Day
In my dreams of Heaven, I always see the great Masters gathered in a huge hall in which they all reside. Only Mozart has his own suite.
Victor Borge
We tend to credit those who create an idea, not those who perfect it, forgetting that it is often only in the perfection of an idea that true progress occurs. Putting sixty-four transistors on a chip allowed people to dream of the future. Putting four million transistors on a chip actually gave them the future.
Malcolm Gladwell
A scary dream makes your heart beat faster. Why doesn’t the part of your brain that controls your heartbeat realize that another part of your brain is making the whole thing up? Don’t these people communicate?
George Carlin
And while blood’s the only language that your deaf old ears can hear And still you will not answer with that message coming clear Does it mean there’s no more ripples in your tired old glory stream And the buzzards own the carcass of your dream?
Harry Chapin
Dreams are manifestations of identities.

Erwin McManus
Art is life’s dream interpretation.

The American dream has always depended on the dialogue between the present and the past. In our architecture, as in all our other arts-indeed, as in our political and social culture as a whole-ours has been a struggle to formulate and sustain a usable past.

Skylar Astin
There comes a point when a dream becomes reality and reality becomes a dream.
Frances Farmer
I had a dream that Britney Spears rubbed her breasts in my face and Jennifer Lopez gave me head while Salma Hayek sucked my toes and the Olsen twins videotaped everything. I would have kept dreaming it, too, if I hadn’t set off the smoke detector.

Ultimately, the film [Dream of Life] is inspirational.
Steven Sebring
Visual media is the dominant art form in our present day culture, whereas poetry is, at best, a proxy. Yet poetry and film are both “dream factories.”

C. S. Lewis

Grant Cardone
Even a small, everyday lie is a clue to the personality and preoccupations of the liar, like a dream or any other confection of the mind, that is half-conscious and half-unconscious, as all creative acts must be.

Joel Osteen
We chase dreams and embrace shadows.
Anatole France
I would be a winner because I was a loser! That’s right. I dream of failure every night of my life, and that’s my secret. To makeit in this rat race you have to dream of failing every day. I mean, that is reality.

I appeal to everyone who believes in Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream to make room at the table of brother- and sisterhood for lesbian and gay people.
Coretta Scott King
always there is a sort of dream of air between you and the hills of California, a veil of unreality in the intervening air. It gives the hills the bloom that peaches have, or grapes in the dew.
Stella Benson
We all need some form of deeply rooted, powerful motivation / it empowers us to overcome obstacles so we can live our dreams.
Les Brown
O cloud-pale eyelids, dream-dimmed eyes,
The poets labouring all their days
To build a perfect beauty in rhyme
Are overthrown by a woman’s gaze.
William Butler Yeats
My children are still young, but I try to talk to them about giving back and how important it is, just to look at the world, be invested in things, to be passionate about things, to have a dream.
Liya Kebede
The highest meaning and the most ultimate purpose of marriage is to put the covenant relationship of Christ and his church on display. That is why marriage exists. If you are married, that is why you are married. If you hope to be, that should be your dream.

Narendra Modi
L.A.’s magic has let me see every level of the dream.
Robert Crais
Wonderful things start to happen when you dream outside of your sleep.
Richard Wilkins
Night is here. All is at rest. My eyes close in order to see without actually understanding the dream that flees before men infinite space; and I experience the languorous sensation produced by the mournful procession of my hopes.
Paul Gauguin
The first time I was asked whether women can “have it all” was at the Miss America pageant. I said no. I didn’t mean that women shouldn’t fully pursue their dreams, only that we need to be honest with ourselves.
Gretchen Carlson
Writing is only a guided dream.
Jorge Luis Borges
In Talmudic literature, certainly in the beginning, he was like a human being – except he was a serpent. But he was talking and walking and probably dreaming.
Elie Wiesel
That is the true genius of America-a faith in simple dreams, an insistence on small miracles.
Barack Obama
We were the daughters of the post-World War II American dream, the daughters of those idealized fifties sitcom families in which father knew best and mother knew her place and a kind of disappointment, and tense, unspoken sexuality rattled around like ice cubes in their nightly cocktails.
Anne Taylor Fleming
This life of separateness may be compared to a dream, a phantasm, a bubble, a shadow, a drop of dew, a flash of lightning.
Gautama Buddha
The helicopter is probably the most versatile instrument ever invented by man. It approaches closer than any other to fulfillment of mankind’s ancient dreams of the flying horse and the magic carpet.
Igor Sikorsky
Remember me in your dreams, as I will you.
Elizabeth Berg
I don’t think that the Olympic games are a good place to bring up any political issues because it should be about the athletes and about coming together. This year’s motto was One World, One Dream and to take that away it’s just not a good time.
Kristin Armstrong
We spend about 20 percent of our total sleep time in a dream state. For most of us, this means we dream one and a half hours each night or, on the average, spend four years of our lifetime in a dream state.
Patricia Garfield
Dreaming is the poetry of Life, and we must be forgiven if we indulge in it a little.
John Galsworthy
dream is the dreamer’s own psychical act.
Sigmund Freud
I believe in being an innovator.
Walt Disney
The leader finds the dream and then the people. The people find the leader and then the dream.
John C. Maxwell
I don’t enjoy “Dust in the Wind”as much. But I do enjoy “Song for America,” “Carry on, Wayward Son,” and many songs- Kansas is really a drummer’s dream to play in. And I like ’em all.
Phil Ehart
At a time when so many scholars in the world are calculating, is it not desirable that some, who can, dream ?
Rene Thom
Don’t ask for anyone’s permission to follow your dreams
Jared Leto
And our dreams,
with what frivolity we have pared them
like toenails, clipped them like ends of
split hair.
Denise Levertov
I continue to dream and pray about a revival of holiness in our day that moves forth in mission and creates authentic community in which each person can be unleashed through the empowerment of the Spirit to fulfill God’s creational intentions.
John Wesley
The future, for me, is romantic, I don’t understand people who say the past is romantic. Romantic, for me, is something you don’t know yet, something you can dream about, something unknown and mystical. That I find fascinating.
Raf Simons
Let go of your expectations. The universe will do what it will. Sometimes your dreams will come true. Sometimes they won’t. Sometimes when you let go of a broken dream, another one gently takes its place. Be aware of what is, not what you would like to be, taking place.
Melody Beattie
If your eyes weren’t open, you wouldn’t know the difference between dreaming and waking.
Richelle Mead
Having said that, I’m a huge Jack Nicholson fan because he just goes nuts in everything he does. Having Jack in his heyday would also be a dream come true.
Paul Kane
I am closer and closer to reaching my childhood dream. This is really exciting! I will continue to work hard, to focus on each tournament I play.
Yani Tseng
As for me, the grounds of my hope have always been that history is wilder than our imagination of it and that the unexpected shows up far more regularly than we ever dream.
Rebecca Solnit
When we realize one Dream, sometimes a deeper Dream reveals itself. At other times a parallel Dream appears. The one that scares the hell out of you is probably it.
Peter McWilliams
Pop art is
the American Dream, optimistic, generous, and naive!
Robert Indiana
You have the power to fulfill your dreams!
Tae Yun Kim
Dream, dream, for this is also sooth.
William Butler Yeats
Symbolism and meaning are two separate things. I think she found the right words by bypassing procedures like meaning and logic. She captured words in a dream, like delicately catching hold of a butterfly’s wings as it flutters around. Artists are those who can evade the verbose.
Haruki Murakami
I think everyone has some sort of connection to Gatsby as a character… he’s created himself according to his own emotions and dreams and lifted himself by his bootstraps from a poor kid in the Midwest and created this image that is The Great Gatsby and it’s a truly American story in that regard.
Leonardo DiCaprio
It takes courage to live your dream and bounce back up when you have been knocked down. Your dreams give you the energy and inspiration to live a great life.
Justin Langer
I can’t believe this is happening to me. The weirdest thing is it was just a dream, and now it’s actually real. It’s hard to believe sometimes.
Carrie Underwood
College is part of the American dream. It shouldnt be part of a financial nightmare for families
Barbara Mikulski
I’m living the American dream.
Dick Vitale
Success comes to those that dare to dream dreams and are foolish enough to try and make them come true.
Vinod Khosla
You always dream about being on a baseball card. It’s kind of funny when you finally see it.
Alex Rodriguez
Life is real, reality is not a dream.
Those who chose to sleep…I wake em up,
Cause you’re sleepin with your mouth open hummin deez nuts.
King Sun
Dream a little dream, Or you can live a little dream I’d rather live it ‘Cause dreamers always chase But never get it
Aesop Rock
When younger writers and poets, musicians and painters are weakened by a stemming of funds, they come to me saddened, not as full of dreams and excitement and ideas. I am then weakened and diminished, and made less rich.
Maya Angelou
Imagination places the future world for us either above or below or in reincarnation. We dream of travels throughout the universe: is not the universe within us? We do not know the depths of our spirit. The mysterious path leads within. In us, or nowhere, lies eternity with its worlds, the past and the future.
If you truly believe that your dreams will come a reality the possibilities are endless
Jared Leto
Too many young people are being taught to give up their dreams before they have any experience attempting to pursue them.
Robert Fritz
It is a time to get our alignment with our dreams and our destiny in order, so we can stand vertical in the season and the dispensations of the glory. For this glory is not like the previous glory – this glory demands an alignment of Heaven and earth so all that is prepared can be released and revealed.
Chuck Pierce
Dreaming is the opportunity to hold a citizenship in two worlds, equally real but with different logic and limitations.
William C. Dement
Dreams must be steady (Sthir). When dreams are steady, they take form of determination (Sankalp) and when you combine them hard-work, they turn into accomplishments (Siddhi)!
Narendra Modi
Baseball was a dream I gathered more splinters than hits.
Frank Perdue
For too many, the dream of economic mobility has been replaced with a nightmare of economic stagnation.
Mario Cuomo
Make treating yourself a priority and always remember your life is happening now. Don’t put off all your dreams and pleasures to another day. In any balanced personal definition of success there has to be a powerful element of living life in the present.
Mireille Guiliano
I feel like I have the greatest life an artist could dream of.
Tommy Shaw
They say before you make something happen you have to see it yourself. I have been seeing it for a long time and I am living my dream.
Adrien Broner
With Shakespeare and poetry, a new world was born. New dreams, new desires, a self consciousness was born. I desired to know to know myself in terms of the new standards set by these books.
Peter Abrahams
The love of her life dissolved into dreams.
Ellen Hopkins
I am a firm believe in the power of dreams, because the world is basically one giant realization of people’s collective dreams come true. We need to dream to aspire to do something that keeps us striving. But those dreams and ideas and wants mean nothing without execution, which doesn’t usually happen without a plan.
Luvvie Ajayi
Saddle your dreams before you ride em.
Mary Webb
There’s not much of a follow-your-dreams kind of vibe in New Zealand or my family.
Melanie Lynskey
At Ken Lay’s funeral service the minister compared him to Dr. Martin Luther King, Junior. The difference is Dr. King had a dream, Ken Lay had a scheme.
Jay Leno
I never dreamt, in my dream, I’m Dalai Lama.
Dalai Lama
I had a dream once. I wanted to do a line of cocaine off a hooker’s ass. That’s when I realized, ‘Hey, I’m freakin’ Zach Braff.’ I did it the next morning.
Zach Braff
I am an undiluted admirer of American values and the American dream and I believe they will continue to inspire not just the people of the United States but millions across the face of the globe.
Margaret Thatcher
My box bedroom can only fit a bed and a wardrobe but it was my whole world. My only personal space to think and dream, to cry and laugh and wait until I became old enough to do all the things I wasn’t allowed to do.
Cecelia Ahern
When I see someone who just follows their dream and succeeds, and just does basically what they want to do and doesn’t have to answer to anyone, obviously not harming anyone, that’s great.
Johnny Depp
Keep on dreaming boy cause when you stop dreaming it’s time to die.
Shannon Hoon
I started The Runaways with Sandy West. We shared the dream of girls playing rock and roll. Sandy was an exuberant and powerful drummer. So underrated, she was the caliber of John Bonham. I am overcome from the loss of my friend. I always told her, we changed the world.
Joan Jett
Am I alive and a reality, or am I but a dream?
Edgar Rice Burroughs
The Rocky Mountains realize – nay, exceed – the dream of my childhood. It is magnificent, and the air is life-giving.
Isabella Bird
Many people dream of success. To me, success can only be achieved through repeated failure and introspection.
Soichiro Honda
I think as a music listener you have your rock and roll dreams. I personally wouldn’t want to apply that necessarily, mainly because I love music too much to mess it up.
Elijah Wood
Americans use the word “dream” as often as psychoanalysts do.
Terry Eagleton
I think that most people, and by people I mean journalists, think that I pre-conceive everything and that I spend my afternoons dreaming up self-mythologizing points of interest.
Jack White
Imagine Martin Luther King saying, ‘I have a dream … But I don’t know if the others will buy it.’
Benjamin Zander
Follow your deepest dream, the one you had as a kidbut stay focused.
Donal Logue
You get to shoot things, and things blow up, and you’re jumping off of buildings. It’s insane! And hot girls. And you get to dress cool. And you’re in a movie with Tom Cruise, come on! So it’s a dream come true. Truly.
Josh Holloway
If you have a dream, never stop preparing for that.
Kurt Warner
We must learn how to lend ourselves to dreaming when dreams lend themselves to us.
Albert Camus
I can’t help but be a different person now that I’ve had kids. That really does change your whole perspective on life for the better. I definitely feel like I’ve grown up. So, I guess in a way parts of me are going to be different, but in general I’m still the same girl from the Bronx who had big dreams.
Jennifer Lopez
If people are not laughing at your dreams at least once a week, you are aiming too low!
Robin Sharma
Waiting and hoping are the whole of life, and as soon as a dream is realized it is destroyed.
Gian Carlo Menotti
We dance for laughter, we dance for tears, we dance for madness, we dance for fears, we dance for hopes, we dance for screams, we are the dancers, we create the dreams.
Albert Einstein
Don’t forget that costumes, like dreams, are symbolic communication. Dreams teach us that a language for everything exists – for every object, every color worn, every clothing detail. Hence, costumes provide an aesthetic objectification that helps to tell the character’s story.
Federico Fellini
Everybody underestimated the universality of the concept of a nightmare or a bad dream. Horror movies travel pretty well anyway. They’re like action movies: People overseas can watch them and enjoy them, and they’re not so culturally specific in terms of their references, and they can follow a good scary story.
Robert Englund
..all I left with was the magnitude of my mistake, of my missing you. And I have to watch you from this distance, watch you achieve your dreams, live what seemed like this perfect life.
Gayle Forman
At the very beginning, I said my life and Playboy are a Rorschach test. It’s a culmination of the dreams and fantasies and prejudices you bring to the table
Christie Hefner
In a Wonderland they lie, Dreaming as the days go by, Dreaming as the summers die: Ever drifting down the stream- Lingering in the golden gleam- Life, what is it but a dream?
Lewis Carroll
Don’t just plan to write – write. It is only by writing, not dreaming about it, that we develop our own style.
P. D. James
this is no dream
just my oily life
where the people are alibis
and the street is unfindable for an
entire lifetime.
Anne Sexton
Could you defeat a cloud, a dream, a poem?
Peter Straub
Break the rules. Be a fighter. Any dream is possible if you are brave enough to do it YOUR way.
AJ Lee
My professional dreams were coming true while I was living a personal nightmare.
Dane Cook
Real Dreams don’t require you to abandon your family, quit your job, and move to Tahiti with your paintbrush. They just require that you search your soul for that deep dream you put aside-and go for it. And watch your life light up.
Barbara Sher
One of my favorite things about animation is that the boundaries are as limitless as our imaginations. If we can dream it, we can make it. And if we do it well, audiences will believe it wholeheartedly.
Dean DeBlois
When I got to the library I came to a standstill, – ah, the dear room, what happy times I have spent in it rummaging amongst the books, making plans for my garden, building castles in the air, writing, dreaming, doing nothing.
Elizabeth von Arnim
Without a vision the people perish, but without courage dreams die.
Rosa Parks
No secret that I enjoy motor sports and cars in particular, building cars, building custom cars. Part of that scene. I love the flow of the cars and I love the art part of them. I love the sleekness and the uniqueness of each car that you can dream up.
James Hetfield
His dream must have seemed so close that he could hardly fail to grasp it. He did not know that it was already behind him.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
It is in our idleness, in our dreams, that the submerged truth sometimes comes to the top.
Virginia Woolf
I strongly believe that the more positive my vibration is, the clearer my message will be. I keep my negative thoughts from infiltrating my pathway and my dreams. Other people’s thoughts are none of my business.
Erykah Badu
I got into the business all by chance. I really enjoy what I do now, but it wasn’t always a huge dream of mine. I think I always had thought about it growing up, though.
Jaimie Alexander
The bridge between reality and a dream is work.
Jared Leto
Im one step ahead of my past, two steps behind my dream.
Melissa Etheridge
The overhead lights reflect in the glass countertop and mingle in the gray and black of the gloves, resulting in a mother-of-pearl swirl that sometimes sends Mirabelle into a shallow hypnotic dream.
Steve Martin
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.
Old Tom Morris
One mustn’t dream of one’s future; one must earn it.
Carlos Ruiz Zafon
It is best to live anyhow, as one may; do not be afraid of marriage with your mother! Many have lain with their mothers in dreams too. It is he to whom such things are nothing who puts up with life best.
Do more than dream. Work.
William Arthur Ward
Edward: It wasn’t the worst night of my life. Jake: Did it make the top ten? Edward: Possibly. But, if I had been able to take your place last night, it would not have made the top ten of the best nights of my life. Dream about that.
Stephenie Meyer
It’s strange how interesting your dreams are, but when someone tries to tell you their dream you’re just like “WHATEVER! Why don’t you send me an e-mail so I can delete it?”
Jim Gaffigan
My main dream – and I’m trying to get ‘Living TV’ to do it – is to go into prison and interview serial killers, rapists, murderers, psychopaths.
Katie Price
It’s when children are 15, 16 or 17 that they decide whether they want to be a doctor, an engineer, a politician or go to the Mars or moon. That is the time they start having a dream, and that’s the time you can work on them. You can help them shape their dreams.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Things certainly aren’t the way you imagine them when you’re a kid and dreaming big dreams about what your life as a grown-up will look like.
Emily Giffin
Relationship is an art. The dream that two people create is more difficult to master than one.
Miguel Angel Ruiz
A pity beyond all telling is hid in the heart of love.
William Butler Yeats
Far away, our dreams have nothing to do with what we do. The wind carries the night, and passes on, aimless.
Mahmoud Darwish
We are pushing towards the dream of having our independent state with Jerusalem as its capital. If there is a real project that aims to resolve the Palestinian cause on establishing a Palestinian state on 1967 borders, under full Palestinian sovereignty, we will support it.
Ismail Haniyeh
I always wanted to be a musician from when I was kid. It was always a massive dream of mine. School was also really really important to me and having an education was top of my priority. So I really wanted to have a degree before I tried anything in the music industry.
Emeli Sande
As I’ve grown – dare I say it – older, I had hopes of indulging my dreams of being a sailor.
Jimmy Webb
Always pursue your dreams and work hard at it.
Georges St-Pierre
A ruffled mind makes a restless pillow.
Charlotte Bronte
I am stuck in the dream of an album that sells well not because of marketing, but because people like the songs.
Steven Morrissey
Looking up and out, how can we not respect this ever-vigilant cognizance that distinguishes us: the capability to envision, to dream, and to invent? the ability to ponder ourselves? and be aware of our existence on the outer arm of a spiral galaxy in an immeasurable ocean of stars? Cognizance is our crest.
Vanna Bonta
I’m really grateful. But I never had the rock star dream. I thought it would be cool to be a modern-day composer.
Julian Casablancas
Who among us has not dreamt, in moments of ambition, of the miracle of a poetic prose, musical without rhythm and rhyme, supple and staccato enough to adapt to the lyrical stirrings of the soul, the undulations of dreams, and sudden leaps of consciousness.
Charles Baudelaire
Tell me not, in mournful numbers,
Life is but an empty dream!
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
There is no other life; life itself is only a vision and a dream for nothing exists but space and you. If there was an all-powerful God, he would have made all good, and no bad.
Mark Twain
The dream we were conceived in will reveal a joyful face, and the world we once believed in will shine again in grace.
Michael Jackson
Am I crazy?” she asked. “I feel like I am sometimes.” “Maybe,” he said, rubbing her forehead. “But don’t worry about it. You need to be a little bit crazy. Crazy is the price you pay for having an imagination. It’s your superpower. Tapping into the dream. It’s a good thing not a bad thing.
Ruth Ozeki
Everything about doing ‘Jurassic World’ was a dream come true.
Bryce Dallas Howard
At some point you realize, I have dreams. I would love to be working on wonderful roles, in wonderful films, with people I respect and admire. And that will come in its time. In the meantime, “Pay attention to your work. Get better at what you do.” That’s my job.
Ann Dowd
If you’re living for today, if you’re only dreaming about yesterday, it doesn’t work. You got to know that tomorrow is going to be better. Then you’re on your way.
Bill Walton
There are other times. There are other adventures. There are other dreams .
Frederick Lenz
One night I had a dream and woke up and wrote down the dream. That was my first short story. The dream was a kind of fantasy of me getting revenge on my father.
Dale Peck
A heart without dreams is like a bird without feathers.
Suzy Kassem
One should have insight into this world of dreams that passes in the twinkling of an eye.
Hojo Shigetoki
Still waters run deep. All things change until we wake. Dreams drift in the wind.
Robert Jordan
To make a film you have to dream a film… that’s true of poetry as well.
Frank Bidart
Art is thus materialized dream, separated from the ordinary consciousness of waking life
Pavel Florensky
Dare to accomplish the things you’ve only dreamed about doing. If you can dream it, you can do it.
Denise Austin
I believe that any single dream contains the essential message about our existence.
Frederick Salomon Perls
If you dream and you allow yourself to dream you can do anything.
Clara Hughes
In glades they meet skull after skull
Where pine cones lay-the rusted gun,
Green shoes full of bones,
the mouldering coat And cuddled up skeleton;
And scores of such.
Some start as in dreams,
And comrades lost bemoan;
By the edge of those wilds Stonewall had charged-
But the year and the Man were gone.
Herman Melville
I write poems from dreams pretty frequently. It’s limiting to think the poem has to come from a sensical lyric “I” stating things clearly or dramatically. This whole course is trying to say there are millions of ways to approach writing a poem.
Matthea Harvey
You have a choice: pursue your dreams, or be hired by someone else to help them fulfill their dreams.
Jay Samit
It has been a long journey, but if you dream and have the ambition and want to work hard, then you can achieve.
Mo Farah
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
I glance into the faces of all these people out for a Sunday stroll, but I’m not seeing eyes and noses and mouths. I’m seeing stories. Every person has a story. All the hopes and dreams. And fears. And secrets. In every face.
Andrew Clements
Go to sleep with visions of what you love. Let your dream vision marinate overnight. Wake up with your positive, hopeful thoughts in place, ready to guide you through a day in which you step ever closer to the life you dream of.
Wayne Dyer
A goal without a deadline is just a dream.
Robert Herjavec
That was always the dream, wasn’t it? ‘I wish I’d known then what I know now’? But when you got older you found out that you NOW wasn’t YOU then. You then was a twerp. You then was what you had to be to start out on the rocky road of becoming you now, and one of the rocky patches on that road was being a twerp.
Terry Pratchett
I am very true to the proud tradition of the old school wrestling that I was brought up on. I am very blessed to be able to live out my dreams, and I have a great respect for the business.
Paul Bearer
The dreams of men, the seed of commonwealth, the germs of empires.
Joseph Conrad
I’ve spoken in front of members of the U.S. Congress about a new dream of living in communities where everybody is welcome and everyone can live and go to school and work without facing the fear of bullies.
Lauren Potter
If you are running anyway, you might as well be chasing your dreams.
J. B. Bernstein
Every kid’s dream is to play in the Champions League and to win it. To actually have achieved that was an amazing feeling.
Gareth Bale
Set daily, monthly and long term goals and dreams. Don’t ever be afraid to dream too big. Nothing is impossible. If you believe in yourself, you can achieve it.
Nastia Liukin
No matter what responses you get from your work, you have to be determined not to give up on your dreams!
Coco Jones
Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue, and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.
Judy Garland
To build a successful business, you must start small and dream big.
Aliko Dangote
Your dreams are your spirit, your soul, and without them you are dead.
Haters will say what they want, but their hate will never stop you from chasing your dream
Justin Bieber
It was taunted as reality. It was dangled as a carrot. In terms of people’s hopes and dreams, to say that that is less of a reality than the daily grind they find themselves in is maybe not correct.
Martin Mull
Every human heart cries and yearns for the same thing: a chance to fulfill his or her own dreams and desires. Even the poorest man has a dream.
Myles Munroe
Do you know what happens when an Arabian woman dances? She does not dance: she protests, she loves, she cries, she makes love, she dreams, she goes away from her reality, to her own world, where love is really meant and she does not want to come back, because that is her reality.
Armand Nassery
We are really living the American dream, to be a successful brand in the States and in Europe and to steep ourselves in our heritage. But we do it with a sense of humor. We don’t take ourselves too seriously in fashion.
Tommy Hilfiger
Let us acknowledge it wiser, if not more sagacious to follow out one’s day-dream to its natural consummation, although if the vision has been worth the having, it is certain never to be consummated otherwise than by a failure.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
The American Dream is not to own your own home, but to get your kids out of it.
Dick Armey
I think it shapes it in very deep ways that you don’t entirely understand. Rainer Maria Rilke said there are two inexhaustible sources for poetry. One is dreams, and the other is childhood. I think childhood is an inexhaustible source of your becoming who you will be and certain deep feelings are set inside of you.
Edward Hirsch
Dreams always end before you kill the last person.
Steve Aylett
A sweet thing, for whatever time, to revisit in dreams the dear dad we have lost.
Let us dream of evanescence, and linger in the beautiful foolishness of things.
Okakura Kakuzo
The ability to dream is all I have to give. That is my responsibility; that is my burden. And even I grow tired.
Harlan Ellison
I love acting, every job is a dream job when you’re an actor. I’d like to do eventually more film work and to collaborate with the best actors and directors in film.
Josh Hopkins
My parents are proud of their Indian heritage, but they came halfway across the world so their children could be born here, raised here as Americans. They came legally, but they came here in search of the American dream, in search of freedom and opportunity.
Bobby Jindal
I think the fact that I am living my dream and being really productive and embarking on all my lifelong aspirations is proof enough that if I can do it, anyone can. I try to tell everybody to dream big and go after their dreams.
Elliott Yamin
If you’re bored, it’s because someone else is fulfilling his dream. Become a bore. It’s the most interesting thing you’ll ever do.
A. A. Gill
You have to dream before your dreams can come true.
Abdul Kalam
There are almost no limits to the discoveries of how the human brain operates in illness and health, in sleep and waking and dreaming, in calm and under tension. The question is how far man can put these discoveries to use without using them not for cure but for power.
Max Lerner
Fear is a wet blanket that smothers the fiery passion God deposited in your heart when he formed you. Fear freezes us into inaction. Frozen ideas, frozen souls, frozen bodies can’t move, can’t dream, can’t risk, can’t love, and can’t live. Fear chains us.
Stasi Eldredge
Never stop. Never stop fighting. Never stop dreaming.
Tom Hiddleston
What are you, Rose Hathaway? Are you real? You’re a dream within a dream. I’m afraid touching you will make me wake up. You’ll disappear.
Richelle Mead
It’s an old anarchist dream that people can take care of their own lives.
Todd Gitlin
If you have a dream. Believe it. Work on it. Have faith in your heart and feel it explode within you. Be sincere about your dream. Mean what you say and do what you dream.
Rita Zahara
Great dreams require great courage.
Erwin McManus
When you long with all your heart for someone to love you, a madness grows there that shakes all sense from the trees and the water and the earth. And nothing lives for you, except the long deep bitter want. And this is what everyone feels from birth to death.
Denton Welch
When I’m 75 years old, I want to say that I chased my dream. I didn’t let other people’s opinions dictate what I have in my book of my life.
Thomas Jones
Last night I dreamed that I came face to face with a picture I had done and forgotten, a forest done in simple movement, just forms of trees moving in space. That is the third time I have seen pictures in my dreams, a glint of what I am striving to attain.
Emily Carr
Judge Samuel Alito’s accomplishments in life are the embodiment of the American dream.
Frank Lautenberg
