Quotes for
the Journey:


Dare to err and to dream.
Deep meaning often lies
in childish games.

Johann Friedrich von Schiller


To dream anything that you want to dream.  That's the beauty of the human mind.  To do anything that you want to do.  That is the strength of the human will. To trust yourself to test your limits.  That is the courage to succeed.
-Bernard Edmonds


All men and women are born, live, suffer, and die; what distinguishes us one from another is our dreams, whether they be dreams about worldly or unworldly things, and what we do to make them come about.      -Joseph Epstein

You cannot be wimpy out there on the dream-seeking trail.  Dare to break through barriers, to find your own path.       -Les Brown

We grow through our dreams.  All great men and women are dreamers.  Some, however, allow their dreams to die.  You should nurse your dreams and protect them through bad times and tough times to the sunshine and light which always come through.      -Woodrow Wilson


Don't be afraid of the space between your dreams and reality.  If you can dream it, you can make it so.       -Belva Davis

God does not want us to abandon our dreams, but will lovingly work with us  to refine our unrealistic dreams, to restore our broken dreams, to realize our delayed dreams, and to redesign our shattered dreams so both his purposes and our dreams can be fulfilled.        -Ken Abraham

Nothing is as real as a dream.  The world can change around you, but your dream will not.  Responsibilities need not erase it.  Duties need not obscure it.  Because the dream is within you, no one can take it away.       -Tom Clancy
Poor people are not those who are without a cent, but those who are without a dream.       -Harry Kemp
Allow yourself to dream again.  If I were your fairy godmother and I could sprinkle fairy dust on you and grant you one wish, what would it be?  It's time to stop talking about not having a dream and start figuring out what it is and how to achieve it.  Be your own fairy godmother.       -Lucinda Bassett

Didn't we all have dreams when we were young?  But the reality of making a living took over when we had to pay our bills, rent our apartments, raise our families, and take care of others.  We sacrificed our dreams, repressed them, or delegated them to the background until they were so far away that we forgot they ever existed.        -Lucinda Bassett

A dream can be nurtured over years and years and then flourish rapidly. . . . Be patient.  It will happen for you. Sooner or later, life will get weary of beating on you and holding the door shut on you, and then it will let you in and throw you a real party!       -Lester Louis Brown


I have heard it said that the first ingredient of success - the earliest spark in the dreaming youth - is this:  dream a great dream.       -John A. Appleman

Within our dreams and aspirations we find our opportunities.       -Sue Ebaugh


It is difficult to say what is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow.       -Robert H. Goddard


If you can imagine it you can create it.  If you can dream it, you can become it.        -William Arthur Ward

Do not pray for dreams equal to your powers.  Pray for powers equal to your dreams.        -Phillips Brooks

Itís the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting. . . Before a dream is realized, the Soul of the World tests everything that was learned along the way.  It does this not because it is evil, but so that we can, in addition to realizing our dreams master the lessons we have learned as we have moved toward that dream. Thatís the point at which most people give up. . . Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself.  And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of search is a secondís encounter with God and with eternity.     -Paulo Coelho
Stop telling yourself that dreams donít matter, that they are only dreams and that you should be more sensible.
-Julia Cameron
Hold fast to your dreams!
Within your heart
Keep one still, secret spot
Where dreams may go
And, sheltered so,
May thrive and grow
Where doubt and fear are not.
O keep a place apart,
Within your heart,
For little dreams to go!

Louise Driscoll

There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve:  the fear of failure.     -Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
High on the wall, in the castle of your dreams of success, hangs the picture of what you want to be.  Always keep that picture hanging there.  See yourself where you intend to be.  Night and day dream of what you intend to do and what you intend to be, for your dreams interpret your intentions always.  All successes are, at first, dreams.     -Fred Van Amburgh
