The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
Yesterday is but today’s memory, and tomorrow is today’s dreams.
I dreamt that I dwelt in marble halls,
With vassals and serfs at my side,
And of all who assembled within those walls,
That I was the hope and the pride.
I had riches too great to count, could boast
Of a high ancestral name;
But I also dreamt, which pleas’d me the most,
That you loved me still the same.
Alfred Burns, The Bohemian Girl
It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
Henry David Thoreau
I have dreamt in my life, dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas; they have gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the color of my mind.
Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights
