A good friend got good news today about something she has dreamed about and struggled to achieve for years. She has a long way to go before reaching her career destination but this first step is a big one and her persistence has a lot to do with getting to this point. Even in the face of many obstacles she stuck with the dream and that tenacity has begun to pay off.
We’ll toast the good news next time we see each other, but meanwhile here are a few quotes about the power of dreaming.
Dreams are like stars … you may never touch them, but if you follow them they will lead you to your destiny.
Dreams are illustrations … from the book your soul is writing about you.
- Marsha Norman
There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality, and then there are those who turn one into the other.
- Douglas H. Everett
So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.
If one advances confidently in the direction of one’s dreams, and endeavors to live the life which one has imagined, one will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
- Henry David Thoreau
Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue, and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.
- Lyman Frank Baum
