Jackie Joyner-Kersee

So while an incredible amount of progress has been made, on this fifth anniversary, I wanted to come here and tell the people of this city directly: My administration is going to stand with you – and fight alongside you – until the job is done. Until New Orleans is all the way back, all the way.

Barack Obama

Graham Nash

But to sustain a marriage for 50 years, you have to get real a little bit and find someone who is understanding and who you can grow with. My mom always says, ‘Marry the man who loves you a millimeter more.’

Sammy Davis, Jr.

Mixing one’s wines may be a mistake, but old and new wisdom mix admirably.

A few years ago you couldn’t go from TV to film. It was like a ‘no no’ but I believe when you find a plan and purpose that God has for your life, there’s not anything man can do to you.

Derek Luke

A mouse does not rely on just one hole.

Plautus

Critical in this process of wisdom being passed down is that you also need to take it in; you need to listen to it.

Humanity’s legacy of stories and storytelling is the most precious we have. All wisdom is in our stories and songs. A story is how we construct our experiences.

Doris Lessing

Start with what is right rather than what is acceptable.

Franz Kafka

Sorrow is knowledge, those that know the most must mourn the deepest, the tree of knowledge is not the tree of life.

Henry David Thoreau

Learning how to get in tune with your field of energy and understand how to create your energy, expand that energy, and move that energy through your body.

Socrates

Look twice before you leap.

Charlotte Bronte

Julia Louis-Dreyfus

There is a trade off – as you grow older you gain wisdom but you lose spontaneity.

What’s different now is that while political leaders used to give talking points to talk radio, now talk-radio hosts are giving talking points to political leaders.

Louise L. Hay

The Ohio Legislature’s passed a law to allow concealed weapons in day care centers, but interesting: this same Legislature, in its wisdom, doesn’t allow concealed weapons in the statehouse.

The arts, quite simply, nourish the soul. They sustain, comfort, inspire. There is nothing like that exquisite moment when you first discover the beauty of connecting with others in celebration of larger ideals and shared wisdom.

Gordon Gee

If they can prove that I am wrong by that time, I will give it up to their wisdom, but not after to any one’s judgment, till I see the end of another year; for the Lord will begin with a new century; and I will see what he will do, before I will hearken to any man’s judgment.

Joanna Southcott

Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.

Rene Russo

I’ll come to you with gifts of knowledge, wisdom and truth.

Barry White

What I like about graduation speeches is that they’re an opportunity for someone to make sense of their life and to impart that wisdom to someone else. It’s like a sanctioned self-help moment.

Bruce Eric Kaplan

Wisdom lies neither in fixity nor in change, but in the dialectic between the two. A constant coming and going: wisdom lies in the momentary.

Octavio Paz

Wise sayings often fall on barren ground, but a kind word is never thrown away.

Arthur Helps

You know, it’s sort of common wisdom among New York publishers that short story collections don’t make money.

Chad Harbach

I’m exploring the maturity, the wisdom that just comes from having gone around the sun 50 times. My experience is, ‘Oh, I’m never really going to get it right. I’m never going to get it done. But that’s not the point here.’ The point is the journey.

Melissa Etheridge

Where can we find greater structural clarity than in the wooden buildings of old? Where else can we find such unity of material, construction and form? here, the wisdom of whole generations is stored.

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

This society in which we live is radically changing. What previous generations saw as evil is now embraced as being good. It is a dangerous and slippery slope upon which we stand when we reject what Solomon called the beginning of wisdom – the fear of God.

Ray Comfort

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is God’s gift, that’s why we call it the present.

Joan Rivers

We simply can no longer afford to deny the full potential of one half of the population. The world needs to tap into the talent and wisdom of women. Whether the issue is food security, economic recovery, health, or peace and security, the participation of women is needed now more than ever.

Michelle Bachelet

They must often change, who would be constant in happiness or wisdom.

Confucius

Commitment is an act, not a word.

America’s freedom of religion, and freedom from religion, offers every wisdom tradition an opportunity to address our soul-deep needs: Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, secular humanism, agnosticism and atheism among others.

Parker Palmer

Christian, learn from Christ how you ought to love Christ. Learn a love that is tender, wise, strong; love with tenderness, not passion, wisdom, not foolishness, and strength, lest you become weary and turn away from the love of the Lord.

Saint Bernard

Beware, so long as you live, of judging men by their outward appearance.

Jean de La Fontaine

Wisdom begins in wonder.

Socrates

However great an evil immorality may be, we must not forget that it is not without its beneficial consequences. It is only through extremes that men can arrive at the middle path of wisdom and virtue.

Wilhelm von Humboldt

The woods were a boon; all too often, the forest offered danger and mystery. Yet it could be liberating. If you entered that wild place on its own terms, you might be accorded wisdom.

John Burnside

People used to grow up in small communities where folk wisdom was passed down. But we don’t live there anymore. We can’t go next door to your aunt and ask her for the answers.

Clarissa Pinkola Estes

Money can be taken away from you, by the IRS or by pistol. That’s why I always measure riches in terms of wisdom. No one can ever take from you what you know.

Juan Gabriel

I’m always feeling like I’m lacking wisdom. This reassurance that one can ask God for that and it will happen is certainly reassuring to me.

Francis Collins

I love Tom Waits because he’s an artist who makes me not afraid to get old, and that’s rare. I think it’s a rare kind of thing to have that level of wisdom. And his lyrics are just astounding; everything in life is inside his lyrics.

Matt Bellamy

Public opinion is no more than this: what people think that other people think.

Alfred Austin

Unhappy is that Grandeur which makes us too great to be good; and that Wit which sets us at a distance from true Wisdom.

Daniel Webster

Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of.

Benjamin Franklin

There is no greater privilege in living than bringing a tiny new human being into the world and then trying to raise him or her properly during the next eighteen years. Doing that job right requires all the intelligence, wisdom, and determination you will be able to muster from day to day.

James Dobson

My first spoken word poem, packed with all the wisdom of a 14-year-old, was about the injustice of being seen as unfeminine. The poem was very indignant, and mainly exaggerated, but the only spoken word poetry that I had seen up until that point was mainly indignant, so I thought that that’s what was expected of me.

Sarah Kay

Fear cannot be without hope nor hope without fear.

Baruch Spinoza

Memory is not wisdom; idiots can by rote repeat volumes. Yet what is wisdom without memory?

Martin Farquhar Tupper

Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.

Alexander Woollcott

The less you talk, the more you’re listened to.

Pauline Phillips

You know how people always talk about how vision is the key to entrepreneurship and perseverance and really seeing what other people don’t see? We can actually redeem a fair amount of that folk wisdom.

Eric Ries

The model a lot of companies use is a very pyramidal model which sort of designates that all creativity, all wisdom flows from the top. We think that’s the absolute wrong model.

Richard Hayne

In order to predict effectively, we need to use science. And the reason that we need to use science is because then we can reproduce what we’re doing; it’s not just wisdom or guesswork. And if we can predict, then we can engineer the future.

Bruce Bueno de Mesquita

I don’t believe in a golden mean; I don’t believe you find policy wisdom between two polar points. I don’t dismiss that possibility, but I look at the platform that’s so ideologically based, that’s so dismissive of facts, of evidence, of science, and it’s frankly hard to take seriously.

Thomas E. Mann

A grandparent can be simply affirming. A grandparent has been there, done that child-raising stuff, and has the wisdom of experience. And so in some ways, they’re free to love without the anxiety of being the actual parents. They’re free to give.

Jewell Parker Rhodes

Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.

Pablo Picasso

It is almost everywhere the case that soon after it is begotten the greater part of human wisdom is laid to rest in repositories.

Georg C. Lichtenberg

I actually don’t think that I’m that much smarter than anybody else. It’s just that I frequently just seem to know what to do, and I think that’s wisdom.

Ben Carson

I’m a member of the 1960s generation. We didn’t have any wisdom.

P. J. O’Rourke

If your writing collides with the conventional wisdom, there’s going to be some kind of friction.

Pankaj Mishra

True wisdom is less presuming than folly. The wise man doubteth often, and changeth his mind; the fool is obstinate, and doubteth not; he knoweth all things but his own ignorance.

Akhenaton

The democratic system is premised on trust in the masses’ wisdom. We believe that the collective is wiser than its parts and that, at the end of the day, it shall make the right choices and take the right decisions.

Yair Lapid

Knowledge is the consequence of time, and multitude of days are fittest to teach wisdom.

Jeremy Collier

While many of us never knew Ronald Reagan personally, we felt close to him because we shared his lighthearted sense of humor, admired his uncommon virtue, and were moved by his remarkable wisdom.

Randy Forbes

The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.

Michelangelo

Zoe Saldana

Logic is the beginning of wisdom, not the end.

Leonard Nimoy

I chose Sony Classics, not just because of their practical experience, not just because of their wisdom in marketing, but mainly because of their integrity.

Arthur Cohn

We dwell in the house of the body, but its perfection and intricate life are the work of a wisdom which never relaxes dominion over a single cell.

George William Russell

The art of storytelling is reaching its end because the epic side of truth, wisdom, is dying out.

Walter Benjamin

Dr. Johnson has said that the chief glory of a country arises from its authors. But then that is only as they are oracles of wisdom; unless they teach virtue, they are more worthy of a halter than of the laurel.

Jane Porter

As you walk in God’s divine wisdom, you will surely begin to see a greater measure of victory and good success in your life.

When you get older, you learn certain life lessons. You apply that wisdom, and suddenly you say, ‘Hey, I’ve got a new lease on this thing. So let’s go.’

Robert Redford

One could surely argue that the Buddhist tradition, taken as a whole, represents the richest source of contemplative wisdom that any civilization has produced.

Sam Harris

As with many other folk beliefs, ‘feng-shui’ undoubtedly incorporates some scientifically correct observation or received wisdom based on direct experience of natural phenomena; but it needs to be dealt with skeptically as a credible system of thought. Some feng-shui prescriptions can certainly lead to desirable results.

Martin Filler

Wisdom oft times consists of knowing what to do next.

Herbert Hoover

Teach you children poetry; it opens the mind, lends grace to wisdom and makes the heroic virtues hereditary.

Walter Scott

The seven wise men of Greece, so famous for their wisdom all the world over, acquired all that fame, each of them, by a single sentence consisting of two or three words.

Robert South

Second, this epic tale allows the audience to actually listen to the Native Americans and receive their wisdom. Spielberg conveys the respect for Native Americans that is normally lacking in Western films.

Beau Bridges

I’m not an academic philosopher, and don’t agree with the way the universities approach the subject. I’m a philosopher only in the very loose sense of someone interested in wisdom and well-being attained through reason. But I’m as interested in psychoanalysis and art as I am in philosophy.

Alain de Botton

We thought, because we had power, we had wisdom.

Stephen Vincent Benet

Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance.

Francis of Assisi

Horace

I’m now the elder in the position of doling out wisdom and trying to mend fences.

Jane Fonda

God has already done everything He’s going to do. The ball is now in your court. If you want success, if you want wisdom, if you want to be prosperous and healthy, you’re going to have to do more than meditate and believe; you must boldly declare words of faith and victory over yourself and your family.

Joel Osteen

The first point of wisdom is to discern that which is false; the second, to know that which is true.

Lactantius

He who is taught to live upon little owes more to his father’s wisdom than he who has a great deal left him does to his father’s care.

William Penn

Leave no stone unturned.

Euripides

I don’t think anybody who has any wisdom regrets a minute of their life, as long as it takes you to the next minute, when things get a little better, and even when it doesn’t.

Allan Gurganus

As far as feeling freedom in my career now versus five years ago… I think if I feel any more free it’s simply because of the experiences that I’ve had, and the wisdom I’ve accumulated from that time.

Mary Chapin Carpenter

Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.

Judy Garland

The invariable mark of wisdom is to see the miraculous in the common.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you and I desire the blessings of life, of health, of vigor of body and mind; if we desire the destroying angel to pass us by, as he did in the days of the children of Israel, we must obey the Word of Wisdom; then God is bound, and the blessing shall come to us.

Heber J. Grant

Contrary to conventional wisdom, the blue blazer’s a bit of a loose cannon. A suit decided long ago what it wanted to be, and it doesn’t want to hear your ideas, but a blue blazer only got around to half the job. So it leaves it up to you to find its bottoms. Gray slacks, blue jeans, patterns, white pants and different blue shades all work.

Willie Geist

The attempt to combine wisdom and power has only rarely been successful and then only for a short while.

Albert Einstein

It is now conventional wisdom that Americans do not care why we went to war in Iraq, that it is enough that the world is better off without Saddam Hussein.

Adam Schiff

But the law of God came from heaven indeed. God wrote it with his finger, it is the fountain of all wisdom, and therefore shall it continue for ever, and never have an end.

John Jewel

Today’s mighty oak is just yesterday’s nut, that held its ground.

David Icke

Of all the things which wisdom provides to make us entirely happy, much the greatest is the possession of friendship.

Epicurus

It is impossible to love and to be wise.

Francis Bacon

Famous Las Vegas Quotes – Latest 2020 Collection

Guests love to be ‘wowed’ in Las Vegas. They enjoy and embrace new tastes, new flavors, and they come to expect the unexpected in Las Vegas.

Michael Mina

I’ve enjoyed appearing in Atlantic City. East Coast audiences are a bit brighter than Las Vegas audiences. I think most entertainers will tell you the same thing. The East Coast audiences are more perceptive – especially when it comes to a performer with a theatrical background.

Anthony Newley

They are the three venues I wanted to box in – I wasn’t really interested in Las Vegas and all of them places. The three I always said was Croke Park, United, and Madison Square Garden.

Tyson Fury

Burnout comes easy in the high-pressure world of television, and when the opportunity arose to move to Las Vegas and bring my friends and star chefs to open their restaurants at the Venetian, I made the move here.

Robin Leach

My daughter just graduated college and she’s a dance major. She’s done a couple of dance videos already and won Miss Massachusetts a couple of weeks ago. She’s going out for Miss United States the second week of July, out in Las Vegas. She will probably wind up going to New York and trying the Broadway thing.

Doug Flutie

As my wife says, I’ll never fully retire, but it’ll start to slow down. I’ll continue to do the local gigs or go to Las Vegas. But I won’t be going out to Ohio to play an Indian casino anymore. Those will probably go by the wayside.

Bill Engvall

Your email inbox is a bit like a Las Vegas roulette machine. You know, you just check it and check it, and every once in a while there’s some juicy little tidbit of reward, like the three quarters that pop down on a one-armed bandit. And that keeps you coming back for more.

Douglas Rushkoff

I met Elvis first in Las Vegas. I think I was appearing with Tom Jones and he came backstage to say hello to Tom or we went to his dressing room to say hello.

Norm Crosby

I’ve always thought of Las Vegas as Los Angeles on its day off. There’s not any hierarchy of taste, and that’s what L.A. always was to me: It’s not really a town of culture – it’s a town of entertainment.

James Turrell

Actually, I was born in Las Vegas. My parents moved to Utah when I was eight because, after 40 years in Vegas, they were tired of it. We ended up in Nephi, a really small town in Utah.

Brandon Flowers

I went with a friend to see Frank Sinatra in Las Vegas, in the last year that he was performing. He wasn’t necessarily on top form, but the way he could connect with an audience and the way he communicated through the lyrics was something I hadn’t ever really seen before.

Ron Howard

Almost six years ago, before I was given the incredible opportunity to be in ‘Leaving Las Vegas,’ I was going through a long period of artistic confusion. I’d spent years doing work that hadn’t pushed me enough, and I was beginning to wonder if I had any talent.

Elisabeth Shue

I work a lot, and not just in Las Vegas.

Juice Newton

I had a big troupe, a big army and it was a lot of fun. And, after 10 years of that, I just decided that I wanted to travel and do special dates. I go to Las Vegas these days.

Bobby Vinton

I lost $35,000 in less than a week at the Mirage in Las Vegas.

Dennis Rodman

‘Leaving Las Vegas’ is a relationship; ‘Dead Man Walking’ is a relationship, and they’re very contained movies. They’re compressed and not in wide open spaces all over the place.

Michael Cimino

There’s a great deal of disturbance in this country and how black feel about what happened in Katrina, and, you know, many of the comics, many of performers are in Las Vegas and New Orleans trying to raise money for what happened there.

Michael Richards

We shot ‘Delusion’ in the middle of the desert and outside of Las Vegas where they did those underground nuclear bomb testings. So I only ate oysters and drank coffee because I didn’t want to turn into a mutant.

Jennifer Rubin

Phoenix and Las Vegas have grim long-term prospects. On top of oil-and-gas problems, they will have terrible problems with water and the ability to produce food locally. I suppose it shows how delusional the public is, and how our institutional controls have decayed – for instance, lending standards.

James Howard Kunstler

I never thought about becoming a professional singer, but I am in touch with Bono about releasing a musical movie. It will be about an Irish band during the ’70s who are looking for fortune in Las Vegas. I should play the singer of the band but I don’t want to sing in front of anybody.

Liam Neeson

After Leaving Las Vegas I did assume that things would get a lot easier than they’ve been. But it’s just been a mirror of the way my career’s been from the beginning, so for it to have changed would have been strange. My career has never been perfect.

Elisabeth Shue

Bangkok, like Las Vegas, sounds like a place where you make bad decisions.

Todd Phillips

I’m training at Phase 1 Sports in Las Vegas, and it’s a very high-end training facility for a lot of top-level athletes. I have been able to add a lot of power and the endurance to keep that power going. I’ve always been powerful, but the muscle conditioning I’ve been able to add has been a tremendous amount of help.

Miesha Tate

Nobody realizes that Mormons were the first Americans to settle Las Vegas.

David Roberts

Nevada Energy doesn’t lose money. The gaming industry loses money. It employs all the people. It pays all the taxes. And if you take the P&L, the profit and loss, of the hotels in Las Vegas and Reno, it is a number that is minus, not plus, minus.

Steve Wynn

My grandmother is still a woman who worries about what she looks like when she goes outside. She’s from that era, and I can remember saying to her, ‘Grandmother, we’re just going to the grocery store.’ And she’d be like, ‘I’ve got to fix my face!’ You were very aware of how you were presenting yourself to society in 1960s Las Vegas.

Vinessa Shaw

I was at our beautiful home in Martha’s Vineyard, near Boston, sitting on the porch looking at the ocean when I got a phone called and was asked, ‘Would I like to do ‘CSI’?’ A week later, I’m at a coroner’s office in Las Vegas, participating in a quadruple autopsy.

Ted Danson

I moved from Minnesota to Las Vegas when I was 13, so I spent my high school years there and did some things I’m not proud of.

Beth Riesgraf

I was trying to take the band in a direction that I thought was appropriate, and Roth was trying to take the band in more of a Las Vegas direction. And there he is.

Eddie Van Halen

I have seen American determination in people like Debbi Sommers. She runs a furniture rental business for conventions in Las Vegas. When 9/11 hit, and again, when the recession tanked the conventions business, she didn’t give up, close down, or lay off her people. She taught them not just to rent furniture, but also to manufacture it.

Mitt Romney

The opportunity to be a star chef, to imagine it would be here in Las Vegas, I couldn’t comprehend it.

Guy Fieri

I was always obsessed with other performers doing their thing, and Britney ‘Live in Las Vegas’ from 2001 is my absolute favorite tour DVD of all time.

Betty Who

We were offered 100 ‘Sgt. Pepper’ shows in Las Vegas with a huge back-end.

Bun E. Carlos

It is not easy to get rich in Las Vegas, at Churchill Downs, or at the local Merrill Lynch office.

Paul Samuelson

No presidential candidate should visit Las Vegas without condemning organized gambling.

Ralph Nader

I didn’t much like Las Vegas. The noise of the place and the whole 24-hour, ‘let’s play the slot machines all night’ culture of the place just left me cold.

James Nesbitt

In 2009, I began creating ‘Waterworks’ with the new vernacular coming from the ‘Signs of Life’ work in Las Vegas.

John Van Hamersveld

I love Las Vegas. I like that Las Vegas has everything. Everything and anything you want to do, you can do in Las Vegas.

Drew Carey

My memories of Las Vegas were all with my father when I was, like, a teenager. He was best friends with Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, and we’d come up and see the shows and go backstage afterwards and have dinner together. It was one of my first educations about stars and how they really are back stage.

Michael Douglas

Las Vegas has the type of audience – and they haven’t changed since my father’s days – they’re still boring and bored. And there’s only that handful of artists that they really enjoy and know how to respond to.

Natalie Cole

I love seafood. Whenever I’m in Las Vegas, I love going to the Bellagio buffet because they have these great king crab legs.

Harland Williams

Las Vegas, New Mexico has had a lot of great movies shot there.

Bill Hader

In the late 1960s, Ontario Airport was a throwback to a bygone era. Located 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, the airport served only two carriers, Western and Bonanza. Passengers could catch regional flights to San Francisco, Sacramento, Las Vegas, Palm Springs, Phoenix and Los Angeles, and that was about it.

Annie Jacobsen

‘Behind The Candelabra’ is an HBO movie. It’s the Liberace story. Michael Douglass and Matt Damon. I play a small part in it. I play a choreographer who introduces, brings Matt Damon to Las Vegas for the first time.

Scott Bakula

I used to be with a publishing house called Roosevelt Music. A gentleman there told me he had seen Peggy Lee perform Fever in Las Vegas and I found out later she wanted to record it.

Otis Blackwell

I love the live performances and Las Vegas. I also like making films that are being discovered by another generation. Having been a teen idol of the ’60s is great because you realize you left your generation with a smile and good memories.

Connie Stevens

It was a melting pot in Las Vegas. You got every age level, every ethnic background, every social aura – it was an absolute Americana audience… people who were there to celebrate occasions; people who were there to gamble; people who were there because they were awed by the whole Vegas operation. Tourists.

Norm Crosby

The Middle East is not part of the world that plays by Las Vegas rules: What happens in the Middle East is not going to stay in the Middle East.

David Petraeus

I like Las Vegas because it kind of gives me a chance to gauge my material in front of a very diverse group of people. There are a lot of different people in the audience, and you can kind of get a barometer for how your material plays throughout the country.

Sebastian Maniscalco

Investing should be more like watching paint dry or watching grass grow. If you want excitement, take $800 and go to Las Vegas.

Paul Samuelson

I really love Las Vegas. It’s, like, my favorite place to be. I love to DJ out there. It is the place to be as a DJ.

Pauly D

I could’ve always worked shows, clubs, Las Vegas and Atlantic City, but I was successful in business ventures, and things weren’t happening in show business, so I said, ‘Let me see what I can do.’

Gabe Kaplan

For me, I think that, certainly, the fact that Las Vegas has a gambling aspect to it is far overshadowed by the entertainment value, if you will, family appeal, that you have, the convention appeal. So it does not have disfavor with me, in my opinion, relative to being an NFL city.

Jerry Jones

I’ve been able to go on and have a successful career on Broadway and certainly the last five years in Las Vegas have been amazing.

David Cassidy

Las Vegas and I both grew up together, and all of a sudden I was doing things that no performer had ever done before.

Wayne Newton

It is amazing that you now have a bus company in Ballymena producing world class buses for Hong Kong, Singapore, London and Las Vegas.

Martin McGuinness

I come home every weekend and I still can’t believe I represent Las Vegas in Congress. It’s such a kick.

Shelley Berkley

I’ve had two romances since moving to Las Vegas. One was with somebody 12 years older than me, and the other was the same age, and neither worked out. I know people still think of me as one of Hugh Hefner’s girlfriends, and he of course was much older than me, but that was a whole different lifestyle and a different kind of dating.

Holly Madison

Melissa Barak, an ex-City Ballet dancer and sometime choreographer, has put together an unspeakably dopey and incompetent mess called ‘Call Me Ben,’ combining ultra-generic dance, terrible dialogue and disastrous storytelling, about the founding of Las Vegas by the gangster Bugsy Siegel, who insists, violently, on being addressed as ‘Ben.’

Robert Gottlieb

Obviously, I try to make the films work for an audience. That’s the main point of making a film, and in retrospect, one can see that certain films, let’s say Leaving Las Vegas, demonstrated its own success.

Mike Figgis

I live in Las Vegas with my family, and I never realized what my parents would go through to get me to a five-minute audition.

Adam Hicks

When I was 17 years old, Frank DiLeo saw my very first music video and flew to my hometown of Las Vegas to meet with my family and me. Frank told my dad, ‘I am coming out of retirement to manage one last big act: Manika.’

Manika

Area 51 is located in southern Nevada desert about 75 miles north of Las Vegas. It’s set inside a greater land parcel that’s about the size of the state of Connecticut that’s called the ‘Nevada Test and Training Range.’

Annie Jacobsen

I did my time for the rape. I paid my money to Las Vegas. I paid my dues.

Mike Tyson

When I played the Sahara Hotel in Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve, I got to bring Wiley, my 85-pound black lab. He’s responsible for my favorite New Year’s memory of all: At the end of the show, he ran onstage and then out across all the tables in the showroom, sending champagne glasses and gamblers flying.

Elayne Boosler

I know many people within Anonymous; I was the keynote speaker at Defcon in Las Vegas and got a standing ovation.

John McAfee

When I went to college at the University of Nevada back in Las Vegas, I got tricked into singing in choir. The first thing we did was the Mozart ‘Requiem.’ That was the piece that changed my life overnight.

Eric Whitacre

In Zurich, in a cafe overlooking the Limmat, I ate butter-drenched white asparagus pulled from the ground that morning; it had the aftertaste of champagne. I’ve been able to appreciate epic meals in San Francisco, New Orleans, Berlin, Paris, Las Vegas.

J. R. Moehringer

My parents divorced when I was 3 years old. They had a lounge act in Las Vegas, where I was born. The band broke up and the marriage dissolved, and my mother, my sister and I moved to Southern California. And I didn’t see my dad a lot growing up; he was on the road a lot. I’d see him every couple years.

Jenny Lewis

Las Vegas is a very strange place. It’s a place of broken dreams.

Concha Buika

Any artist who goes to Las Vegas is an idiot as far as I am concerned. Whoever goes to Las Vegas can stay in Las Vegas.

Chuck Close

I have always loved Las Vegas. It’s a traditional place for lounge comics to perform, and I love that.

Norm MacDonald

Betting on the success of innovative technologies in the marketplace can carry all the uncertainty and risk that betting on the next card in the deck does at a blackjack table in Las Vegas. There is a factor of randomness that must be factored in, but precisely how to do so is anyone’s guess.

Henry Petroski

I believe in Las Vegas. I think its best days are ahead of it. But I’m afraid to do anything in the current political environment in the United States.

Steve Wynn

I love coming to Las Vegas. I’ve always loved it and always had a good time.

Ian Ziering

I believe what makes cooking in Las Vegas different from cooking in most other cities are the guests that dine with you in Las Vegas.

Michael Mina

I love roller coasters that make my stomach drop. One ride in Las Vegas, the Big Shot, straps you into a row of seats and catapults you into the air from the top of the Stratosphere Tower – then plummets back down. I ride it over and over; it’s exhilarating.

Drew Barrymore

If Yucca Mountain had not been designated as a dumpsite for radioactive waste in 1987, it might easily have become a scenic overlook on the long drive between Tonopah and Las Vegas.

Wil S. Hylton

In Las Vegas, the magnitude is impressive, but the humanity is gone. It feels like you’re being intimidated out of your money instead of inviting you to come have this experience.

Eric Whitacre

Las Vegas is the boiling pot of entertainment.

Don Rickles

Housing was ground zero for the Great Recession. Between early 2006 and Obama’s inauguration in 2009, average house prices fell by a third across the country. In certain areas, including cities as diverse as Akron, Orlando and Las Vegas, house prices fell by more than half.

Mark Zandi

If you were black, you experienced prejudice. It wasn’t a real horrible thing for us; we went through it. We noticed it mostly in the South and in Las Vegas, where we couldn’t stay in the hotels where we entertained. But that began to change.

Harold Nicholas

I like the Eiffel Tower in Las Vegas more than the actual one.

David LaChapelle

The last episode of Dallas was in ‘1991.’ Unfortunately, it was a terrible episode to end the show on: it was a sort of ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ with Larry as the Jimmy Stewart character. In that episode, I was an ineffectual-schlep kind of brother, who got divorced three or four times and was a Las Vegas reject.

Patrick Duffy

I was born and raised in Las Vegas, and then I left there to go to the University of Evansville where I majored in theatre.

Rutina Wesley

I’ve always loved it in Las Vegas, and it is the only city in the world that brings so many different talented people from so many places.

Daniel Boulud

I don’t like Las Vegas. I’d rather be mountain biking or climbing.

Greg Brenneman

The success of one market model cannot be migrated to another. Ignoring Macau’s special characteristics and duplicating a Las Vegas or an Atlantic City would not be a successful strategy.

Stanley Ho

Most people think of Las Vegas, and they think of extravagance. But it’s really a mix between fantasy and laziness.

Gia Coppola

I cut a rap song once. It was a few years ago for my old show ‘Buck Commander,’ and it was a song called ‘You’re Short.’ It was about my camera guy. We shot the video in Las Vegas, ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ style!

Willie Robertson

I’ve been trying to watch my weight a bit, but when I come to Las Vegas, all bets are off. I get enough healthy food in L.A. where the food is the size of a quarter and costs $40 – when I’m in Vegas, I want a steak!

Billy Gardell

In the heart of the desert and founded by the first Spanish Conquistadores, Las Vegas has become the entertainment capital of the world, with more than 30 million visitors a year.

Brunello Cucinelli

A lot of places in Las Vegas are big boxes of stuff. The hotels I’ve built have had, for lack of a better term, a soul.

Steve Wynn

I think we can really use magic in a way never attempted before to inspire these children, help rally their self-confidence and even help them develop social skills. This is a national effort, not just here in Las Vegas. I know we can give them a true passion.

Criss Angel

All my memories of being in Las Vegas with Bobby were great. Frank Sinatra brought us to the Sands Hotel in 1965. When we worked that lounge, it was a great lounge. I think it was bigger than the showroom. We were two 25-year-old dumb kids from Orange County in Las Vegas with The Rat Pack.

Bill Medley

With everything it has to offer, Las Vegas is an obvious destination for tourists, as proven by the over 40 million visitors the city welcomes per year.

Jon Porter

There are three capitals of entertainment in the world: Las Vegas, New York and London. So far the only one I truly conquered is Vegas. New York and London are still on my checklist.

Guy Laliberte

If you don’t have a pool in Las Vegas, you have to put your children in the icebox.

Sirio Maccioni

One day, I saw a magic show, and I was like, ‘I have to learn how to do this!’ Every time I went to Las Vegas, I had to get at least two or three tricks from the magic shops.

Lilla Crawford

Las Vegas is the expression, in glitter and concrete, of America’s brittle and mutating id.

John Burdett

I hate Disneyland. It primes our kids for Las Vegas.

Tom Waits

My 2005 calendar we actually did a shoot in Lake Las Vegas. Since I had requests do some swimwear and athletic shots we tried them and they came out good so we inserted them into the new calendar.

Natalie Gulbis

The guys have a lot of good cars built up. We’re going to do some more testing before we go back to Las Vegas and try to win at Vegas again. We need to get off to a quick start.

Sterling Marlin

Las Vegas without Wayne Newton is like Disneyland without Mickey Mouse.

Merv Griffin

Las Vegas is a 24-hour city. It never stops.

Eli Roth

The reason we shot it was that the script was geared to Las Vegas and it was something commercial that we wanted to have in the can in case Butterfly was a success and we needed a follow-up.

Dream Quotes Collection [Part 3]

I did not move to New York with a plan. The first time I moved to New York, I just popped up. My sister was living here in New York. I just popped up. She had her baby and a husband, and I just popped up. ‘Hey, what’s up? I got $200 and dreams. Let’s do this.’

Hannibal Buress

I haven’t had an easy life, but at some point, you have to take responsibility for yourself and shape who it is that you want to be. I have no time for moaners. I like to chase my dreams and surround myself with other people who are chasing their dreams, too.

Aimee Mullins

Right before ‘American Dreams,’ I started to pursue these avenues, like short films and getting into a couple night courses to really study photography and cinematography, and the language of visual storytelling.

Tom Verica

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

The dreams of the 1960s began to disappear in the 1970s. The economy collapsed, and so did the optimism of the Metabolists.

Toyo Ito

The follow your dreams thing is really important because so many people are railroaded into taking other paths by their family, their friends, people who should be supportive going, ‘What are you talking about?’ Even just seemingly regular career paths, but if it’s not what people expect for you they kind of react funny.

Joan Jett

When you’re a kid, you have these big ideas and these big dreams to make a change, or maybe you feel like you can’t make a difference.

AnnaSophia Robb

I believe the reason we sleep is not just to allow our body to rest but that it is to allow this inner wisdom to speak to us through symbols. This includes the body or somatic problems as well as psychological ones. Dreams and drawings are useful in diagnosing physical conditions.

Bernie Siegel

I love ‘Memory Keeper’s Daughter,’ but in some ways I think ‘The Lake of Dreams’ is a stronger book. I was able to tell the story I wanted to tell. That’s all you can ever do as a writer. From there on you have no control over it.

Kim Edwards

You can do anything if you set your mind to it. Look out for kids, help them dream and be inspired. We teach calculus in schools, but I believe the most important formula is courage plus dreams equals success.

Marlee Matlin

Believe it or not, lots of people change their majors and abandon their dreams just to avoid a couple of math classes in college.

Danica McKellar

I’m just a regular Baltimore chick who believed in God enough to follow her dreams.

McKayla Maroney

No matter how carefully you plan your goals they will never be more than pipe dreams unless you pursue them with gusto.

W. Clement Stone

Sigmund Freud said we act out our own dreams, but if you are only an actor you are not acting out your own dream. You are simply participating in someone else’s dream.

John Malkovich

When I give speeches at college, I don’t tell stories, I talk about what it is to live your dreams and take the path less traveled.

Tucker Max

When I was at college, the idea of fashion was more immediate to me, whereas art photography, the depth of it, was a different thing. Storytelling – fanciful storytelling – can only be told through fashion photography. It’s the perfect way to play with fantasy and dreams.

Tim Walker

It is easier to learn to interpret dreams if you have a reason to use them for something constructive. You apply your dream insights to making constructive changes in your life.

Henry Reed

I went into the ‘Idol’ audition with no expectations; that’s just the kind of person I am. If it doesn’t happen, it doesn’t hurt so badly, you know? But once I made it past the first round, and the second, and third – I started to realize, ‘Maybe my goals and dreams really are attainable.’

Crystal Bowersox

I’m very tired, but this is what every filmmaker dreams about: that their $15 million, under-the-radar film is now being seen by so many people.

Morten Tyldum

One of my first dreams when I was a child was becoming a painter.

Hideo Kojima

Man is a genius when he is dreaming.

Akira Kurosawa

In Dreams… well, I was slightly overcompensating with that. I was a bit like a director for hire, so maybe I was putting too much imagery that was familiar to me into it.

Neil Jordan

Never let life impede on your ability to manifest your dreams. Dig deeper into your dreams and deeper into yourself and believe that anything is possible, and make it happen.

Corin Nemec

There are hundreds of stories I’ve heard from black women from my generation, generations before me, and the next, that have never been given an opportunity to fulfill their dreams.

Misty Copeland

Never give up on what you really want to do. The person with big dreams is more powerful than the one with all the facts.

H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

When I look back over my life it’s almost as if there was a plan laid out for me – from the little girl who was so passionate about animals who longed to go to Africa and whose family couldn’t afford to put her through college. Everyone laughed at my dreams. I was supposed to be a secretary in Bournemouth.

Jane Goodall

Dreams get you into the future and add excitement to the present.

Robert Conklin

The ‘Star Trek’ future, to me, is where we are headed. Everything is automated, and we are free to pursue our dreams. We are free to pursue lives that aren’t about working and toiling away in dangerous jobs. For example, how many of us would love to be poets, or how many of us would love to be artists?

Gray Scott

Our reactor actually burns nuclear waste as fuel. So not only is it safe and powerful, it solves an important issue: It actually reduces nuclear waste instead of creating. It’s the reactor of your dreams.

Nathan Myhrvold

I have lots of favorites movies. I say this only because it’s a favorite movie because it’s a sport I love. I’m a huge baseball fan. There are movies I like as much as this, but I sort of single this movie out because I’m a baseball nut, and that’s ‘Field of Dreams.’

Rick Santorum

I am a dreamer. Seriously, I’m living on another planet.

Eva Green

Dreams become reality when we put our minds to it.

Queen Latifah

I can’t comprehend that I’m in the film of ‘Les Miserables.’ It’s one of those dreams I thought would be unattainable for someone like me, who came from nowhere.

Samantha Barks

I am extremely suspicious of dreams, apparitions and visions, both in literature and in films and plays. Perhaps it’s because mental excesses of this sort smack too much of being ‘arranged.’

Ingmar Bergman

Our fathers had their dreams; we have ours; the generation that follows will have its own. Without dreams and phantoms man cannot exist.

Olive Schreiner

Every actor dreams of getting a big break, a big opportunity.

Liam McIntyre

I don’t remember my dreams too much. I hardly have ever gotten ideas from nighttime dreams. But I love daydreaming and dream logic and the way dreams go.

David Lynch

Books that distribute things… with as daring a freedom as we use in dreams, put us on our feet again.

Marsilio Ficino

Literature for me isn’t a workaday job, but something which involves desires, dreams and fantasy.

Antonio Tabucchi

All my childhood dreams have come true.

Lucas Till

I really had a lot of dreams when I was a kid, and I think a great deal of that grew out of the fact that I had a chance to read a lot.

Bill Gates

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

I grew up 150-200 miles from any city. You simply didn’t have much connection with the outside world. So my dreams were always to get out. It’s a familiar kind of thing, I think, for anybody in a small town.

Bobbie Ann Mason

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

Education is at the heart of achieving your dreams.

Patrice Motsepe

Felix Bloch

I challenge you to be dreamers; I challenge you to be doers and let us make the greatest place in the world even better.

Brian Schweitzer

While novels are fiction, mine are usually very close to my heart. Like my other books, ‘The Lemon Orchard’ is inspired by something I care about. I care so deeply. The stories are my dreams, and I want to do a lot of research. Roberto is based on a real live friend of mine named Armando who worked in my garden.

Luanne Rice

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 would like to see anyone be able to achieve their dreams, and that’s what this organization does.

Sergey Brin

People are so obsessed with making their careers and having a big house; then you realize that kills your dreams. It even kills what makes your life because you get so busy inside.

Thomas Dolby

Capitalism is always evaluated against dreams. Utopia is a dream. It doesn’t exist.

Rush Limbaugh

Glamour is an imaginative process that creates a specific emotional response: a sharp mixture of projection, longing, admiration, and aspiration. It evokes an audience’s hopes and dreams and makes them seem attainable, all the while maintaining enough distance to sustain the fantasy.

Virginia Postrel

I would like to instill in people just to work hard. As long as they keep at it, their dreams will happen.

Misty May-Treanor

I never, in my wildest dreams, could I have thought that the first role I get out of school would lead to an Oscar nomination.

Dreams from 1991 are becoming reality. We will build good relations between nations and people. We will strive towards mutual respect and equality of every individual, sex, race and national or any other minority.

Janez Drnovsek

It feels good being a restaurant owner because it’s part of my dreams of being the biggest mogul.

Rickey Henderson

Everyone dreams of living in Paris.

Natalie Portman

Friends can have different dreams and do different things.

Sabrina Bryan

Amplifying atoms is more subtle than amplifying electromagnetic waves because atoms can only change their quantum state and cannot be created. Therefore, even if one could amplify gold atoms, one would not realize the dreams of medieval alchemy.

Wolfgang Ketterle

Myths are public dreams, dreams are private myths.

Joseph Campbell

My childhood dreams were focused on being part of the effort to make humanity a multiplanetary species.

Peter Diamandis

One of my favorite ways to write paranormal, as in the ‘Wake’ trilogy, is to write very normal characters with just a hint of something other-worldly. Like somewhere, maybe, someone really can get sucked into other people’s dreams.

Lisa McMann

Like dreams, statistics are a form of wish fulfillment.

Jean Baudrillard

My dreams for the future are simple: work, a happy, healthy family, a lovely long motorcycle ride, and continuing the struggle to awaken people to the need for serious human rights reform.

Mike Farrell

To every people the land is given on condition. Perceived or not, there is a Covenant, beyond the constitution, beyond sovereign guarantee, beyond the nation’s sweetest dreams of itself.

Leonard Cohen

Here in America, those who once had no hope will give their kids the chance at a life they always wanted for themselves. Here in America, generations of unfulfilled dreams will finally come to pass.

Marco Rubio

Both my parents were working-class and had dreams of making the world a better place. It’s pretty powerful, being able to reflect back their beliefs.

Neneh Cherry

But what I’d really like to tell you is I never dreamed of being in the Hall of Fame. Standing here with all these great players was beyond any of my dreams.

Robin Yount

We live between the act of awakening and the act of surrender. Each morning, we awaken to the light and the invitation to a new day in the world of time; each night, we surrender to the dark to be taken to play in the world of dreams where time is no more.

John O’Donohue

No movie influenced me more to go after my dreams than ‘Flashdance.’ After seeing it, I took 15 dance lessons a week. I cut all my sweatshirts. I did the ‘Maniac’ thing.

Elizabeth Berkley

In my wildest dreams, I never would have thought we’d come to the point where were talking about the re-election of a black president.

Harvey Gantt

From Italy, I’d get calls from cousins and aunts saying, ‘I don’t think you should act. It’s really tough. What are the chances?’ This was around the time ‘Flashdance’ came out, and I was like, ‘What about your dreams? I’m a maniac.’

Enrico Colantoni

Instead of plotting the demise of the traditional family, as some politicians and religious leaders would have you believe, gay people mow their lawns and watch ‘American Idol’ and video their children’s concerts and have the same hopes and dreams that their straight counterparts do.

Jodi Picoult

We will be returning to historical levels of inequality. We’ll view post-war America as a kind of strange interlude not to be repeated. It won’t be the dreams that we all had that virtually all incomes go up in lockstep at three percent a year. It hurts to give that up.

Tyler Cowen

From a very young age, I would fall off the bed and wake up on the floor because of dreams. I have a memory from the age of four in which I felt God.

In high school, I worked eight hours a day just so I could get into the college of my dreams and say that I got in – and I never went.

If you think about becoming a writer, that’s just really one of the big dreams I had. It’s really important to have those dreams and pursue your passions.

Deb Caletti

As soon as I became old enough to make my dreams my reality, I became a firm believer that the subconscious and the world outside of our flesh and blood is essentially the truth.

Melissa Auf der Maur

My first book was called ‘Buried Dreams,’ about a serial-killer, which was probably about ten years ahead of the serial-killer curve. It was a national bestseller, but it was three years of living in the sewer of this guy’s mind.

Tim Cahill

Yesterday is but today’s memory, and tomorrow is today’s dream.

Khalil Gibran

We all get lost along the way, but hopefully we figure out some sort of path. It helps if you can imagine the process as well as the goal. Those kinds of dreams are easier to achieve.

Annette Bening

Dreaming of a tomorrow, which tomorrow, will be as distant then as ’tis today.

Lope de Vega

Horror, for me, has to involve some sort of fantasy. Horror is something that is in your dreams or your nightmares.

Cassandra Peterson

Today, dancers have so much more information and are much more mobile. Kids are traveling everywhere to go to summer programs, funding themselves with Kickstarter – putting their dreams on the Internet and seeing if they will pan out.

Carla Korbes

The starting point of discovering who you are, your gifts, your talents, your dreams, is being comfortable with yourself. Spend time alone. Write in a journal. Take long walks in the woods.

Robin S. Sharma

I want my boys to have an understanding of people’s emotions, their insecurities, people’s distress, and their hopes and dreams.

Princess Diana

I’ve had dreams – there were three things I wanted to do during my career. I did them during my first year of Grand Prix.

Charlotte Dujardin

You control your future, your destiny. What you think about comes about. By recording your dreams and goals on paper, you set in motion the process of becoming the person you most want to be. Put your future in good hands – your own.

Mark Victor Hansen

The great function of poetry is to give back to us the situations of our dreams.

Gaston Bachelard

It’s insecurity that is always chasing you and standing in the way of your dreams.

Vin Diesel

I have the most beautiful souls in my life supporting me and helping me to follow my dreams. I love them more than I can ever express in words.

Bindi Irwin

What makes a loft authentic isn’t its layout or its history but its ability to give people a true home – a dwelling that reflects their personalities and aspirations, including their dreams of urbanity.

Virginia Postrel

Dreams about the future are always filled with gadgets.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

A lot of people put pressure on themselves and think it will be way too hard for them to live out their dreams. Mentors are there to say, ‘Look, it’s not that tough. It’s not as hard as you think. Here are some guidelines and things I have gone through to get to where I am in my career.’

Joe Jonas

There’s no training for the business, no credentials necessary to enter… It’s all about entrepreneurs, innate street intelligence, and instincts. It’s a business which encourages people with dreams. That’s the essence of Hollywood.

Dawn Steel

If you can’t read, it’s going to be hard to realize dreams.

Booker T. Washington

No one should negotiate their dreams. Dreams must be free to fly high. No government, no legislature, has a right to limit your dreams. You should never agree to surrender your dreams.

Jesse Jackson

Don’t think your dreams don’t come true, because they do. You’d better be careful what you wish for. And I truly and honestly – one day I am doing the ‘Beaver’ show and I said, ‘This is the show I have always wanted to do.’

Barbara Billingsley

‘The Lake of Dreams’ grew gradually, over many years, elements and ideas accruing until they gained enough critical mass to become a novel.

Kim Edwards

I’m a really hectic dreamer; I never wake up not out of a dream, and there’s loads going on, lots of action, big blockbuster dreams, they’re all major enterprises.

Linda Grant

I’ve been interested in dreams since I as a kid and I’ve wanted to do a film about them for a long time.

Christopher Nolan

I’ve always wanted to make movies that are fever dreams.

Damien Chazelle

I tell people ‘America’s Got Talent’ is the best summer job you could have – you get to watch people strive for their dreams all summer long. So when you see me rooting for these people or dancing on the side of the stage, that’s what I’d be doing if I was watching this show at home!

Nick Cannon

After all those days in the cotton fields, the dreams came true on a gold record on a piece of wood. It’s in my den where I can look at it every day. I wear it out lookin’ at it.

Carl Perkins

My mom taught me to go after my dreams. I have this faith in myself that I must have gotten from her.

Amy Jo Johnson

Much can be inferred about a man from his mistress: in her one beholds his weaknesses and his dreams.

I’ve got a young man who works for me who says you don’t need to discover your dreams – you need to recover them.

Dave Ramsey

I was told before my first trip that no city in the world offered the dreams you could have sleeping in Havana. But nobody warned me that Havana also always feels like an exhausting nightmare that never quite fulfills the promise of what it’s threatening you with.

Brin-Jonathan Butler

A positive attitude can really make dreams come true – it did for me.

David Bailey

I can have my goals, and I can have my dreams. My goal is to make the finals and improve my position. I want to run all decent races. I don’t want to look back and say I ran a terrible race.

Oscar Pistorius

A fulfilling life is different to each person. You have to acknowledge your dreams, and not just wait for life to happen, and opportunities to come knocking at your door.

Joan Lunden

All my dreams are coming true all across the board for some reason.

Jay Electronica

Dreams don’t have deadlines. I’m thinking of doing bigger and better things and having more fun with it.

LL Cool J

I have so many friends who just have big dreams, and they work their butts off every day to try to make these things happen, and so long as we keep that mindset and remember others, I think we’ll be good.

Jennette McCurdy

I don’t write from dreams because I don’t remember mine, but I had a fragment of an image left about twins, whose father was telling them how their lives were going to go for the next eight years. I wrote a scene about that, and then another and then another and then another, and after five months I had 732 pages.

Tamora Pierce

Do all you can to make your dreams come true.

Joel Osteen

Paula Radcliffe

Prabal Gurung

Mr. Tennyson has said that more things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of, but he wisely refrains from saying whether they are good or bad things.

Adelaide Anne Procter

America’s legacy has been crafted by generations of hard-working men and women who moved to the United States from all over the globe to pursue their dreams.

Charles B. Rangel

‘The Impossible Dream’ is, in my opinion, one of the greatest songs ever written. Here is a man, an old man, a very old man full of daring, bravery, courage, determination, romanticism and dreams.

Christopher Lee

When your dreams tire, they go underground and out of kindness that’s where they stay.

Libby Houston

Both dreams and myths are important communications from ourselves to ourselves. If we do not understand the language in which they are written, we miss a great deal of what we know and tell ourselves in those hours when we are not busy manipulating the outside world.

Erich Fromm

I remember my dreams when I was a junior soloist. ‘Oh, I hope I don’t end here,’ I thought. ‘I want to do the ballerina in ‘Scotch Symphony.’ I don’t want to be the little Scotch girl.’ And I actually went beyond my wildest dreams. I worked with Balanchine. I had ballets choreographed for me.

Patricia McBride

We live because of the dreams.

Marat Safin

Though I know he loves me, tonight my heart is sad; his kiss was not so wonderful as all the dreams I had.

Sara Teasdale

I would feel like such a behind if I went to California and made my family move, and they couldn’t find their dreams there, too.

RJ Cyler

I do have the odd dream where I’m on stage and I’ve completely forgotten what I’m meant to be performing – so they are more nightmares than dreams.

Kate Bush

Catcher in the Rye had a profound impact on me-the idea that we all have lots of dreams that are slowly being chipped away as we grow up.

Judd Nelson

I wasn’t prepared to get a mammogram until I was 40 years old, like I’d been told. I never in my wildest dreams expected anything to be wrong.

I’ve had quite a lot of luck with dreams. I’ve often awoken in the night with a phrase or even a whole song in my head.

Brian Eno

I spent my entire childhood in an environment in which the mighty of the earth had no place outside story books and dreams.

Halldor Laxness

Talking, talking. Spinning a web of words, pale walls of dreams, between myself and all I see.

John Gardner

In my dreams, I could be a Princess, and that’s what I was. Like most little girls, I believed nothing less than a Prince could make my dreams come true.

Loretta Young

I’ve learned not to buy into what other people say. I’ve learned not to put dreams in other people’s hands.

Michael Oher

Freedom and democracy are dreams you never give up.

Aung San Suu Kyi

I spend a lot of time practicing active imagination before I go to sleep. What I’m feeling will manifest as images through active imagination. And then I go to sleep, and those play out even more in my dreams.

Jeff Mangum

Fiction makes your dreams come true, and, as a writer, fiction allows you to delve into the area of miracles.

James McBride

Our religion is the traditions of our ancestors – the dreams of our old men, given them in solemn hours of the night by the Great Spirit; and the visions of our sachems, and is written in the hearts of our people.

Chief Seattle

I feel like I’m making a difference. I feel like putting out a message for young girls to follow your dreams and just work at what you want to do and be yourself.

Willow Smith

Going back to the moon is not visionary in restoring space leadership for America. Like its Apollo predecessor, it will prove to be a dead end littered with broken spacecraft, broken dreams and broken policies.

I love the idea of being part of a campaign that captures the spirit of New York and the stories of women here, passionate about their dreams.

Rita Ora

Paracelsus

I don’t design clothes, I design dreams.

Ralph Lauren

Marriage is a kind of prison for anyone who’s miserable in it – men and women alike – and anyone who’s suffered through difficult periods in marriage dreams of escape from it.

Adam Ross

All human beings are also dream beings. Dreaming ties all mankind together.

Jack Kerouac

It has never been my object to record my dreams, just the determination to realize them.

Man Ray

We can bring to characters dark and bright sides that nobody even dreams about.

Sonia Braga

The buildings that I build very often have a dreamlike reality. I don’t mean by that they have a fantasy quality at all, in fact quite the reverse. They contain in some degree the ingredients that give dreams their power… stuff that’s very close to us.

Christopher Alexander

As a young man you don’t notice at all that you were, after all, badly affected. For years afterwards, at least ten years, I kept getting these dreams, in which I had to crawl through ruined houses, along passages I could hardly get through.

Otto Dix

I feel honored to be an example for others. It makes it feel worthwhile to have overcome all the challenges I have encountered so I can help others to dream and also fulfill their dreams.

Terezinha Guilhermina

I was not born in a home where there were stereotypes. So that was very useful because it gave me the sense of possibilities, of flying, if I may say, of making my hopes and dreams a reality.

Michelle Bachelet

I will teach people not only how to identify their goals and dreams, but subsequently give them the tools to make those dreams a reality.

Jillian Michaels

An Academy Award nomination is stuff dreams are made of.

Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy

I’m a journeyman actor, and I don’t ever want to forget that. With romantic-lead dreams.

William Sanderson

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

T. E. Lawrence

We are near waking when we dream we are dreaming.

Novalis

I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality.

Frida Kahlo

Then I was working in a store in Newark, New Jersey, and I saw an actor in person, and I got so excited. My whole day changed. That’s when I decided to challenge myself to make my dreams become a reality.

Derek Luke

Whatever you do, life don’t stop. It only sits a minute and dreams a dream.

Grace Paley

Politics are beautiful. They enable a community to live collectively with one another. It’s not about stabbing each other in the back; it’s about enabling people to reach their dreams and pursue happiness.

Ben Nicholson

Michael P. Anderson

The thing that I’ve always believed is that you have to follow your passion, and if climbing is your calling in life and your craft, to not do it is a tragedy. I am always going to encourage my children to follow their passions and dreams, whatever they are.

Jimmy Chin

I remember seeing this picture my mother had of Dick Clark. It didn’t inspire me to be an actor or anything, but when I did ‘American Dreams’ with Dick Clark, my mother came out, and she showed him this picture of them that was taken 35 years earlier. It was great.

Tom Verica

A successful life is one that is lived through understanding and pursuing one’s own path, not chasing after the dreams of others.

Chin-Ning Chu

I motivate others by making sure that they understand to go after their dreams and don’t let anyone tell you you can’t. If you are motivated enough and put the work in that you can achieve anything in life that you set your mind to.

Magic Johnson

It was no accident that I made ‘Hoop Dreams’ because it concerned a sport that I loved and hoped would be my dream, however far-fetched that turned out to be. Because of the success of that film, Hollywood pigeonholed me as a sports biopic guy, which led to ‘Prefontaine’ and two cable sports films.

Steve James

Barack Obama’s official nomination as the Democratic Party’s standard-bearer was a very poignant moment for millions of Americans. As the first non-white major party nominee, Obama is carrying a big load on his shoulders. He’s holding the hopes and dreams of a lot of folks who thought the presidency was only reserved for white men.

Chuck Todd

Mary Webb

It’s hard because people always say, ‘Follow your dreams,’ but it’s not a perfect world, and things don’t always work out. But you’ve just got to work hard, and you can’t take things for granted.

Stephen Colletti

I mostly play old period songs, as they suit a ukulele more. I bought it when I saw the tribute concert to George Harrison. Joe Brown came on and sang ‘I’ll See You In My Dreams,’ and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

Charles Dance

I hope I can make more miracles, more dreams come true.

Guan Tianlang

H. P. Lovecraft

Now I know we have the power to incite change through the Internet – keep sharing our stories, our dreams, and our struggles.

Ty Dolla Sign

I’d definitely be the kind of parent who enabled my child’s dreams. I’d just watch and nurture and guide them. I have the blueprints of what not to do… I think I’d be a good parent, actually.

Drew Barrymore

Dreams have only one owner at a time. That’s why dreamers are lonely.

Erma Bombeck

Men never cling to their dreams with such tenacity as at the moment when they are losing faith in them, and know it, but do not dare yet to confess it to themselves.

William Graham Sumner

Even in the most peaceful communities, an appetite for violence shows up in dreams, fantasies, sports, play, literature, movies and television. And, so long as we don’t transform into angels, violence and the threat of violence – as in punishment and deterrence – is needed to rein in our worst instincts.

Paul Bloom

You have to have a dream so you can get up in the morning.

Billy Wilder

It’s good to have plans and dreams, but don’t be surprised if God brings you somewhere else.

Anne F. Beiler
