Dolly Parton

When you’re a Republican Latino, you’re traveling uphill on a lonely road. Still, it’s the road I prefer. It has led me to opportunity far beyond my dreams.

Some people in Hollywood think of me as a model for dramatic midlife transitions: suburban housewife to Emmy-winning actress. But I never plotted a master plan for following my dreams.

Kathryn Joosten

Luke Bryan

Although the events we appear to perceive in dreams are illusory, our feelings in response to dream content are real. Indeed, most of the events we experience in dreams are real; when we experience feelings, say, anxiety or ecstasy, in dreams, we really do feel anxious or ecstatic at the time.

Stephen LaBerge

We become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams.

Jimmy Carter

Jennifer Lynch

Jamie Clayton

We have lost that which has made us great over the generations, and that is the sense of individual and personal responsibility that we can come up, we can pursue our dreams and our aspirations and we won’t be blocked by government regulation, by the inability to get a loan as a small business to make our dreams come true.
