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

They are the people worth while. Dreaming is just another
name for thinking, planning, devising--another way of saying that
a person exercises his or her soul. A steadfast soul,
holding steadily to a dream ideal, plus a sturdy will determined
to succeed in any venture, can make any dream come true. Use your
mind and your will. They work together for you beautifully
if you'll only give them a chance. -B.N.

I, therefore, exert myself to make happen, whatever the odds
against it. It is the college education I couldn't get when
I was in my twenties but which I am now getting, one night course
at a time. It is the new fountain in the garden that I take
hours to dig after the regular workday is over. It is the
new deck on the home. It is anything that takes an effort
that is really no effort at all. -Joan

dreams. Someday your life will near its end and all you will
be able to do is look backwards. You can reflect with joy or
