Maya Angelou

I do not have bad days. I don’t wake up in the morning and think that I’m going to get AIDS. I don’t dream bad dreams about it. If I did, I’d be giving in to the negativity.

Magic Johnson

Dream and give yourself permission to envision a You that you choose to be.

Joy Page

I’m fortunate enough to be living my dreams and a lot of other peoples’ dreams.

Wale

It is all nonsense, to be sure; and so much the greater nonsense inasmuch as the true interpretation of many dreams – not by any means of all dreams – moves, it may be said, in the opposite direction to the method of psycho-analysis.

Arthur Machen

Trust in dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.

Khalil Gibran

God’s gifts put man’s best dreams to shame.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

My work is to reach people with ideas, hopes, dreams, encouragement, insight, and revelation. That’s what an actor wants to do.

John Astin

Kids need a happy household. They need to be loved and supported in their dreams. And I don’t think you can make your kids’ dreams your own. They need you to support them in their dreams.

Billy Crystal

Living in dreams of yesterday, we find ourselves still dreaming of impossible future conquests.

Charles Lindbergh

Barack Obama knows that to create an economy built to last, we need to focus on middle-class families. Families who stay up on Sunday nights pacing the floor, like my dad did, while their children, tucked in bed, dream big dreams. Families who aren’t sure what Monday morning will bring, but who believe our nation’s best days are still ahead.

Chuck Schumer

Beautiful dreams – if the world were more beautiful they would come true – But the world is relentless & cruel – people are – they must be, I suppose, or they could not live.

Alfred Stieglitz

The interpretation of dreams is a great art.

Paracelsus

When I was young, I was an academically oriented guy like most academically oriented guys. I graduated in science, did an MBA. My dreams as a young boy were I wanted to be an industrialist, or I wanted to be a scientist.

Amish Tripathi

I’ve always been fascinated by memory and dreams because they are both completely our own. No one else has the same memories. No one has the same dreams.

Lois Lowry

It’s a really scary thing, having your dreams come true and seeing everything you ever wanted happening, getting the attention for it and then not knowing how to handle it properly.

Samaire Armstrong

Dream in a pragmatic way.

Aldous Huxley

I worshipped Berry Gordy for the creative dreams he had made come true.

Martha Reeves

The work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives and the dreams shall never die.

Edward Kennedy

I’ve always been interested in photographing traditions and customs – especially in America. The prom is an American tradition, a rite of passage that has always been one of the most important rituals of American youth. It is a day in our lives that we never forget – a day full of hopes and dreams for our future.

Mary Ellen Mark

In school, when I got into upper-level math, there would be times when I would wake up from a dream and have – not an answer, exactly, but a direction to pursue. My writing has always been like that. I wake up from dreams knowing which direction to go in.

Shane Carruth

There’s a logic to dreams that doesn’t necessarily follow linear narrative. You don’t know why things happen, it’s your subconscious pushing you, to give you information.

Justin Theroux

I never – in my dreams, doing track in high school, I didn’t imagine it would turn out like this.

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce

People ask how can a Jewish kid from the Bronx do preppy clothes? Does it have to do with class and money? It has to do with dreams.

Ralph Lauren

In opposition to this detachment, he finds an image of man which contains within itself man’s dreams, man’s illness, man’s redemption from the misery of poverty – poverty which can no longer be for him a sign of the acceptance of life.

Salvatore Quasimodo

Dreams sometimes foretell the future.

Mickey Hart

We all ran barefooted on the dusty roads in our past, but now the Emperor wears shoes, and it is our responsibility to ensure that the barefooted child and the doting mother are afforded a holistic environment to realise their dreams and ambitions.

Anthony Carmona

In Kenya, I met wonderful girls; girls who wanted to help their communities. I was with them in their school, listening to their dreams. They still have hope. They want to be doctor and teachers and engineers.

Malala Yousafzai

If there are dreams about a beautiful South Africa, there are also roads that lead to their goal. Two of these roads could be named Goodness and Forgiveness.

Nelson Mandela

Dreams can become a reality when we possess a vision that is characterized by the willingness to work hard, a desire for excellence, and a belief in our right and our responsiblity to be equal members of society.

Janet Jackson

With unemployment still abysmally high, the Obama economy is crushing Hispanics’ dreams for their children to live a better life.

Marco Rubio

‘Sweet Dreams’ is such a dark-sounding song, but it’s about not taking anything for granted; share yourself with others after you have first spent some time with yourself.

Angel Olsen

I’ve had dreams about tricks.

Shaun White

From my perspective, music allows me to escape from the world of what is happening right in front of me… to the world of my thoughts, my dreams, my hopes and ideas – for the world, for my own life, for the day, even for the moment.

Danielle de Niese

I’ll tell you this: You have to remember to chase and catch your dreams, because if you don’t, your imagination will live in empty spaces, and that’s nowhere land.

Gary Busey

Visions are worth fighting for. Why spend your life making someone else’s dreams?

Tim Burton

Acting is fantastic, but to be able to create a whole world on celluloid is amazing. It’s like taking your dreams straight from your head and projecting them onto a screen.

Amber Benson

I think L.A.’s terrific. You fly an hour and a half and you’re in the mountains in three feet of powder. I also think it’s a much better city if you’re working as an actor. If you’re not working and you don’t see your dreams coming true, there can be a lot of heartache.

Scott Patterson

You have all the reason in the world to achieve your grandest dreams. Imagination plus innovation equals realization.

Denis Waitley

Computers are magnificent tools for the realization of our dreams, but no machine can replace the human spark of spirit, compassion, love, and understanding.

Louis V. Gerstner, Jr.

I think the best part in going to the movies is you feel something and you relate whether it’s to family struggles or dimming your light for someone. I would say to never dim your light and to really, truly follow your dreams.

Tika Sumpter

Ocean is more ancient than the mountains, and freighted with the memories and the dreams of Time.

H. P. Lovecraft

Deep down, I’m a Texas girl looking for that big romance every girl dreams about. Biologically, I look forward to being a cornerstone of a family. I’ll be in my glory when I have a child on my knee.

Renee Zellweger

If your mom asks you to do the dishes, do not pull out your pirate attitude. But if someone tells you you’re not good enough, says your dreams are too lofty, or claims there is no room in showbiz for a dancing violinist – well then, by all means, pull out your eye patch, my friend, and take to the high seas.

Lindsey Stirling

The idea of being able to serve as an example, based upon how to process, how to think, how to realize our own dreams, we can pass that down to our children.

Stedman Graham

One of the dreams on my wish list is to spend more time in Thailand.

Kevin Kwan

I am consumed with the fear of failing. Reaching deep down and finding confidence has made all my dreams come true.

Arsenio Hall

I can’t remember any dreams in my life. There’s so much strange in real life that it often seems like a dream.

Tim Burton

I can never decide whether my dreams are the result of my thoughts, or my thoughts the result of my dreams.

D. H. Lawrence

Sometimes, the only realists are the dreamers.

Paul Wellstone

All men of action are dreamers.

James Huneker

We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they’re called memories. Some take us forward, they’re called dreams.

Jeremy Irons

Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.

Pope John XXIII

Dreams look real, but they’re in your mind, so you realize that the physical world is also a construction, which shows that the mind can affect reality in more ways than you can imagine.

Stephen LaBerge

I had some wonderful dreaming meetings. I can’t tell you specifically what they’ve been in the recent months. In the past they’ve been verbal kinds of messages that he needed to give me. Now they’re more dreams of his presence.

Judy Collins

When we see the face of a child, we think of the future. We think of their dreams about what they might become, and what they might accomplish.

Desmond Tutu

One of the things I’ve started doing lately is tracking my dreams. I feel like there’s a lot of information there and you can really bring those emotions to the situations that may feel mundane or familiar. That gives them new life and gives you a new relationship with it – if that makes any sort of sense.

Jennifer Carpenter

Strivers achieve what dreamers believe.

Usher

When Paul Allen and I started Microsoft over 30 years ago, we had big dreams about software. We had dreams about the impact it could have.

Bill Gates

There has been enough suffering in our country, there has been enough of children whose dreams die before they have a chance to grow and there has been enough of our elders who, having served their nation, are forced into indignity in their old age.

John Agyekum Kufuor

If you always think about your dreams or goals, work steadfastly towards them and continue to challenge yourself, you will definitely be able to realise those dreams or goals.

Tadashi Yanai

More dreams are realised and extinguished in Bombay than any other place in India.

Gregory David Roberts

When I was either 7 or 8 years old, I did a sketch every day of my teacher and what she wore. At the end of the year, I gave her the sketchbook. For me, the sketching of dresses was about fantasy and dreams.

Alber Elbaz

I’m somebody who gets a lot of inspiration from dreams.

M. Ward

Reverie is when ideas float in our mind without reflection or regard of the understanding.

John Locke

A daydream is an evasion.

Thomas Merton

Education is not a tool for development – individual, community and the nation. It is the foundation for our future. It is empowerment to make choices and emboldens the youth to chase their dreams.

Nita Ambani

You can’t break my spirit, it’s my dreams you take.

James Blunt

My fear is that I go up to the girl of my dreams and say ‘I’m sorry, but I’ve got to say hello to you,’ and she slides the stool back and gets up and walks away, saying, ‘Not for me, Bub. I don’t want anything to do with you.’

John Mayer

You white folks see UFOs in your dreams. You don’t hear about Martians in Harlem.

Paul Mooney

Worse than not realizing the dreams of your youth, would be to have been young and never dreamed at all.

Jean Genet

Do I feel any pressure as the most decorated Winter Olympian in American history? None at all. The only pressures that I know I face are those of how to pay it forward: How can I continually make a positive impact in people’s lives, help others achieve their dreams, create their own Olympic mindset, creating champions within themselves?

Apolo Ohno

Some people ask why people would go into a dark room to be scared. I say they are already scared, and they need to have that fear manipulated and massaged. I think of horror movies as the disturbed dreams of a society.

Wes Craven

We spend most of our lives cutting down our ambitions because the world has told us to think small. Dreams express what your soul is telling you, so as crazy as your dream might seem – even to you – I don’t care: You have to let that out.

Eleni Zaude Gabre-Madhin

In Nicaragua, liberty, equality and the rule of law were the stuff of dreams. But in Paris I discovered the value of those words.

Bianca Jagger

The London Games will be designed for the athletes and we will provide them with the very best venues and the very best conditions to pursue their sporting dreams in London.

Sebastian Coe

We need affordable space travel to inspire our youth, to let them know that they can experience their dreams, can set significant goals and be in a position to lead all of us to future progress in exploration, discovery and fun. Thanks to the X Prize for the inspiration.

Burt Rutan

Every kid in America dreams of playing in the big leagues and they don’t, just because. It’s not because they blew out their knee. It’s just because they didn’t make it.

Marc Blucas

A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.

Oscar Wilde

Have you ever wondered why young people take to music like fish to water? Maybe it’s because music is fun. Plan and simple. It opens up their minds to dream great dreams about where they can go and what they can do when they get older.

Isaac Hayes

Without peace, all other dreams vanish and are reduced to ashes.

Jawaharlal Nehru

After more than a decade as the editor of ‘Wired’ magazine, Chris Anderson started the company of his dreams – a robotics manufacturing company called 3D Robotics – to produce the autonomous flying vehicles coming out of DIY Drones.

Peter Diamandis

As a person who came from a small town and had dreams of becoming an actor, I know what it’s like to have no support system for what it is that you want to do. A lot of people think you don’t have a chance.

Anika Noni Rose

When you’re raising a little kid, you tell that kid to go after their goals and their dreams. And you tell them to work as hard as anybody.

Romeo Miller

I think what every skater dreams of is not only skating the best program they can possibly skate, but, y’know, having the crowd roar at the end, and it was just so loud I couldn’t even hear my music.

Sarah Hughes

I dreamed I was a butterfly, flitting around in the sky; then I awoke. Now I wonder: Am I a man who dreamt of being a butterfly, or am I a butterfly dreaming that I am a man?

Zhuangzi

Dreams are the guiding words of the soul. Why should I henceforth not love my dreams and not make their riddling images into objects of my daily consideration?

Carl Jung

Our brains have this habit of quilting dreams from the fabrics of our lives. As a filmmaker, I get to do it for a living.

Peter Landesman

Google is a global Rorschach test. We see in it what we want to see. Google has built an infrastructure that makes a lot of dreams closer to reality.

John Battelle

What people tell me they take away from my books is that they can shape their lives, they can achieve their own dreams. And certainly that’s what I want them to take away.

Tamora Pierce

You only get one album. You only get one single. You get one shot in music. But I have a million different dreams. Why can’t I go out and try to achieve them all? Who are you to say I can’t?

Lucy Hale

I just kind of wake up with a new idea and new dreams every day, and I follow that dream, as they say.

Dolly Parton

I’ve never been bashful to say that I’m not really interested in Formula One. When I lived in England, it’s all I wanted to do and I thought that anything else would somehow be a compromise to my dreams. But then when I came back to the States, I realised how much I loved being back in the States.

Danica Patrick

The life of a man consists not in seeing visions and in dreaming dreams, but in active charity and in willing service.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When your dreams are close to coming true, it does not feel real at first.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan

I wanted to be a musician, either a guitarist or a drummer. I guess my dreams were in the entertainment industry, and I landed somewhere along there.

Israel Broussard

I have mixed feelings about how fast things are changing as a result of technology. There’s no denying that through technology there are amazing things being created that help people with diseases or help people’s dreams come true. But there’s also this obsession. Social media is the most dangerous of them all.

Amanda Crew

Women have to summon up courage to fulfill dormant dreams.

Alice Walker

The time I spent in New York when I was 17 gave me the confidence to pursue my dreams with my whole heart.

Leslie Odom, Jr.

The world of men is dreaming, it has gone mad in its sleep, and a snake is strangling it, but it can’t wake up.

D. H. Lawrence

The working class of England take their deracination completely for granted. Disenchantment is the happy code that informs every byway of the underclass: service jobs, celebrity dreams, Lotto wins, leisured poverty on pre-crunch credit cards, it’s all there, part of the story of an English people whose grandparents never had it so good.

Andrew O’Hagan

The greatest thing has been that projects that were pipe dreams before ‘Whiplash’ are now feeling more realistic.

Damien Chazelle

I had actually studied political science in college. I had dreams of being a lawyer at one time.

Michael Kelly

Every writer dreams of having a backyard cottage, similar to Dahl’s ‘writing hut.’ English cottages and charming huts might seem out of reach, but a good carpenter could build a modest cottage on the cheap.

Kate Klise

Some guys have trouble sleeping the night before an important round. I never have. Invariably, I sleep longer and better, and have more dreams, when I’m in contention and feeling pressure.

Tom Watson

I am a walking piece of art every day, with my dreams and my ambitions forward at all times in an effort to inspire my fans to lead their life in that way.

Lady Gaga

In my lifetime, I’ve discovered a great many incredibly talented individuals. Some have achieved stardom. Simultaneously, I’ve seen many dreams shattered, egos destroyed and lives changed forever. The end destination may well be fame and fortune, but the road to stardom is littered with broken hearts.

Nigel Lythgoe

There are many talented people who haven’t fulfilled their dreams because they over thought it, or they were too cautious, and were unwilling to make the leap of faith.

James Cameron

The job of elected officials is to answer to the people who sent them to Washington – not to scorn them, not to demean them, not to mock them, and not to sell their jobs and dreams to the highest bidder.

Jeff Sessions

Thankfully, dreams can change. If we’d all stuck with our first dream, the world would be overrun with cowboys and princesses.

Stephen Colbert

I never in my wildest dreams thought I would get even one play at Indiana, let alone 25 years later, walk Bruin Walk, walk UCLA where Coach Wooden built his legacy.

Steve Alford

I have very weirdly realistic dreams where it could be real life, except it’s not.

Nat Wolff

All books are either dreams or swords, you can cut, or you can drug, with words.

Amy Lowell

I’m a big fan of dreams. Unfortunately, dreams are our first casualty in life – people seem to give them up, quicker than anything, for a ‘reality.’

Kevin Costner

You’ll be much more successful if you follow your dreams and follow your passions.

Jay Weatherill

I immediately loved working with flies. They fascinated me and followed me around in my dreams.

Christiane Nusslein-Volhard

I don’t like dreams or reality. I like when dreams become reality because that is my life.

Jean Paul Gaultier

The hoary joke in the literary world, based on ‘Dreams From My Father,’ was that if things had worked out differently for Barack Obama, he could have made it as a writer.

James Fallows

I still have dreams in which someone is coming to the door.

Alek Wek

Today I know that there is still work to be done, but along the way my I am achieving my dreams.

Candace Parker

Since cancer, I feel like I have dreams rather than ambitions, visions rather than plans.

Eve Ensler

I have dreamed 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

Soviet expansionism in Europe, the battle for control of China, and the 1950 invasion of South Korea would shatter once-euphoric dreams of post-war cooperation with the Kremlin.

M. Stanton Evans

People are so busy dreaming the American Dream, fantasizing about what they could be or have a right to be, that they’re all asleep at the switch. Consequently we are living in the Age of Human Error.

Florence King

Dreams come true, but then things happen that are beyond anything you could dream. To be in a movie and to be in the same room participating in a movie with Meryl Streep? Come on!

BeBe Winans

The Washington black community was able to succeed beyond his wildest dreams. I mean, we had our own newspapers, our own restaurants, our own theaters, our own small shops, our own clubs, our own Masonic lodges.

Ed Smith

We in the majority have worked hard to empower people to create opportunities, to make jobs, to do things that turn America into a place where people can achieve their dreams.

Robin Hayes

Like my mother, I was always saying, ‘I’ll fix my life one day.’ It became clear when I saw her die without fulfilling her dreams that my time was now or maybe never.

Liz Murray

When I walk up on that shore in Florida, I want millions of those AARP sisters and brothers to look at me and say, ‘I’m going to go write that novel I thought it was too late to do. I’m going to go work in Africa on that farm that those people need help at. I’m going to adopt a child. It’s not too late, I can still live my dreams.’

Diana Nyad

As a young boy, I had strange dreams of affecting people and somehow being instrumental in changing the makeup of Africa and helping to improve life there.

Djimon Hounsou

Most ‘reality’ shows aren’t reality at all. They’re game shows with no prize. Like ‘Rock of Love.’ His aren’t genuine feelings. Then again, Bob Barker didn’t really care whether or not you won the toaster. Sorry to shatter everyone’s dreams.

Hal Sparks

I’ve dreamed landscapes for years, and my dreams play an enormous role in my work. In fact, when I first started doing landscapes I felt insecure about painting in this style, and the dreams were like positive omens for me, and I’ve done a few paintings that were exact replicas of images that came to me in dreams.

April Gornik

I’m a big believer in living out your dreams and facing your fears.

Brock Lesnar

A city is not gauged by its length and width, but by the broadness of its vision and the height of its dreams.

Herb Caen

Memories have huge staying power, but like dreams, they thrive in the dark, surviving for decades in the deep waters of our minds like shipwrecks on the sea bed.

J. G. Ballard

I hardly ever remember my dreams.

Tyler Blackburn

Sometimes your dreams come true.

Frank Bruno

You have to dream dreams to live dreams.

Eric Lindros

Horror is about dreams and heightened states. It really is about taking away the logic on some level and getting right to the emotion of something.

Tim Minear

You don’t know when you are immersed in a book what the reaction to it will be, but I feel great about ‘The Lake of Dreams.’

Kim Edwards

‘Dreams From My Father’ reveals more about Obama than is usually known about political leaders until after they’re dead. Perhaps more than it intends, it shows his mind working, in real time, sentence by sentence, in what feels like a private audience with the reader.

Jonathan Raban

Follow your dreams, work hard, practice and persevere. Make sure you eat a variety of foods, get plenty of exercise and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Sasha Cohen

That’s what noir feels like to me. It feels like some kind of recurring dream, with very strong archetypes operating. You know, the guilty girl being pursued, falling, all kinds of stuff that we see in our dreams all the time.

Brian De Palma

I really want to live in New York. That’s the city of my dreams.

Joel Kinnaman

Dreams really tell you about yourself more than anything else in this world could ever tell you.

Sylvia Browne

It is great good health to believe, as the Hindus do, that there are 33 million gods and goddesses in the world. It is great good health to want to understand one’s dreams. It is great good health to desire the ambiguous and paradoxical.

Clive Barker

I believe in everything until it’s disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it’s in your mind. Who’s to say that dreams and nightmares aren’t as real as the here and now?

John Lennon

It’s interesting when you wind up distilling all your ambitions and your goals and dreams into one single person. It’s giving that person a lot of power.

Damien Chazelle

A God Jar is anything you wish it to be, in which you can put your wishes, dreams, problems, prayers. You may want to think of it as a spiritual mailbox.

Julia Cameron

Follow your passion, be prepared to work hard and sacrifice, and, above all, don’t let anyone limit your dreams.

Donovan Bailey

Writers write. Dreamers talk about it.

Jerry B. Jenkins

Goal-getting matters. And writing down the brave acts and bold dreams you intend to accomplish will provide the spark to get them done.

Robin S. Sharma

I feel like, big city or small town, you can relate to following your parents’ footsteps or putting your own dreams on the back burner or vices that we get caught up in – that whole cycle. That’s not just a small-town thing. That’s a life thing.

Kacey Musgraves

In dreams begin responsibilities.

Delmore Schwartz

Romantic comedies seem to take over where the fairytales of childhood left off, feeding our dreams of a soulmate; though, sadly, the Hollywood endings prove quite elusive in the real world.

Mariella Frostrup

As I and the rest of my Pittsburgh Steelers teammates prepared that week in late December 1974, we knew one thing: The road to the Super Bowl in the AFC went through Oakland. To achieve your dreams as a team, you had to slay the Oakland Raiders. They were the barometer of what it took to be a championship team.

Joe Greene

Seems like half my anxiety dreams are about airports.

Lois McMaster Bujold

When you stop having dreams and ideals – well, you might as well stop altogether.

Marian Anderson

Am I athletic? In my dreams.

Hugh Bonneville

Ironically, it is exactly because we are a city that embraces freedom, that welcomes everyone and encourages their dreams, that New York remains on the front lines in the war on terror.

Michael Bloomberg

We all have pretty much similar dreams, and at the root of all those dreams is being able to be in control of your money.

Alexa Von Tobel

I’m not certain, but I have a little gypsy blood in me. And my mother always told me that her grandma could give someone the evil eye, and I’d better not cross her because she had some of that blood in her. Mother always believed that she could predict the future, and she had dreams that came true.

Sam Raimi

Dreams take you beyond what you think you can do in life.

Vikram Chatwal

When you cease to dream you cease to live.

Malcolm Forbes

That’s what keeps me going: dreaming, inventing, then hoping and dreaming some more in order to keep dreaming.

Joseph Barbera

I have had dreams and I have had nightmares, but I have conquered my nightmares because of my dreams.

Jonas Salk

Hopefully, young people will see that you can be young and make the sacrifices to follow your dreams.

Tinie Tempah

I feel like I’ve accomplished all my fantasies and childhood dreams. I had nothing; now I have everything.

Terezinha Guilhermina

Old age realizes the dreams of youth: look at Dean Swift; in his youth he built an asylum for the insane, in his old age he was himself an inmate.

Soren Kierkegaard

Throughout my career, I have been confronted with people who have doubted my ability to achieve the dreams and ambitions distilled into my soul by my father.

Joyce Banda

I just write what I wanted to write. I write what amuses me. It’s totally for myself. I never in my wildest dreams expected this popularity.

J. K. Rowling

Ever since we were little, we were so on fire for our dreams. We never let anyone blow our flames out.

Kelly Rowland

I’m a real soft, sentimental guy who dreams up decapitations.

David Seltzer

Winners, I am convinced, imagine their dreams first. They want it with all their heart and expect it to come true. There is, I believe, no other way to live.

Joe Montana

I liked lots of ‘Doctor Who’ books, but my favourite tale was a spooky story about two invalid children – who’ve never met in the real world – who get trapped in a shared dreamscape when they fall asleep. It’s called ‘Marianne Dreams’ by Catherine Storr.

Stephen Cole

To become an astronaut, someone has to have a dream of his own to do something that he or she has always wanted to do, then commit himself to making that dream come true.

Eugene Cernan

What are the Democrats, the party of Jim Matheson, telling them? The message of the Democrats is that the Amercian dream is over. ‘The government is all you have. Give up your dreams, and the government will save you, the government will heal you, the government will be your hope and change.’ We know here in Utah, none of that is true.

Mia Love

When I was 11 years old, I was bullied. It mainly started when I moved to California to pursue my dreams of being an actress. Kids back home in Texas, who I thought were my friends, were saying things behind my back. They said that I would never make it because I wasn’t talented or pretty enough to be on TV.

Raini Rodriguez

I adore this adventure, I adore working with youth. For me it’s a daily challenge, working to help these youths realize their dreams.

Patrick Roy

I think any time someone’s dreams are crushed, there’s the people who can fight to still try and fulfill those dreams and then there’s the people who just give up.

Constance Zimmer

But baseball bounced back in the next decade to reclaim its place as the national pastime: new heroes, spirited competition, and booming prosperity gave birth to dreams of expansion, both within the major leagues and around the world.

John Thorn

To act: that is what the writer would like to be able to do, above all. To act, rather than to bear witness. To write, imagine, and dream in such a way that his words and inventions and dreams will have an impact upon reality, will change people’s minds and hearts, will prepare the way for a better world.

J. M. G. Le Clezio

I grew up knowing I would be good at athletics, and dreams of a Super Bowl were always within reach as long as I progressed.

Matt Willig

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

Eleanor Roosevelt

My parent’s divorce and hard times at school, all those things combined to mold me, to make me grow up quicker. And it gave me the drive to pursue my dreams that I wouldn’t necessarily have had otherwise.

Christina Aguilera

For an athlete myself, it is especially meaningful for our country to host an Olympics. Every athlete hopes to participate in an Olympics, so I still can’t believe the games of dreams is going to take place in Korea.

Kim Yuna

It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez

My parents always told me to be myself. I was always funny and silly as a kid. And I would always make them laugh. And they always told me to dream big and follow those dreams.

Richard Simmons

An athlete cannot run with money in his pockets. He must run with hope in his heart and dreams in his head.

Emil Zatopek

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

When you’re a young English person who wants to be an actress and you have dreams, you dream of being Vanessa Redgrave or Judi Dench.

Janet McTeer

Skating, I think I was told once, is the second most expensive sport. My family’s had to refinance three times – they really want to do anything that it takes for my dreams to come true. I hope to one day have a family that I can do that for and kind of give back in the same way that my family gave to me.

Jeremy Abbott

I’ve learned in the little bit of my life so far that you can’t fool people. And so I only tell people what I think about: my ambitions, my dreams, what inspires me.

Benjamin Clementine

I think dreams can come true, but not necessarily like fairy-tales. It’s not always so perfect like that.

Patrick Dempsey

I’ve shown that if you dream and are willing to work hard, you can achieve your dreams.

Mo Farah

Hannibal Buress

Elliott Yamin

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

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

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

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.

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.

Natalie Portman

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.

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

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.

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.

Mark Victor Hansen

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

‘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

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.

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.

Michael Oher

Freedom and democracy are dreams you never give up.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

As you look back at your life, there are just a million different things that have happened, just in the right way, to allow you to make your dreams come true. And you know, someone has all that under control.

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

The more you can dream, the more you can do.

Michael Korda

Saddle your dreams before you ride em.

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

I never ask a man what his business is, for it never interests me. What I ask him about are his thoughts and dreams.

Joe Cornish

If you don’t have dreams, you don’t have a life.

Bryce Harper

If I could have had everything exactly the way I wanted, this is how I would have written it down. Win all my fights in the first round, then go to the UFC and headline a show, and have it as a pay-per-view and at home. People’s dreams don’t come true like that.

Ronda Rousey

I think being nice and being safe is unfair to yourself when you have big dreams as a woman. I think you have to prepare yourself that not everyone in this world has the same personality… The one thing I’ve chosen to be great at in my life is singing – so why not be proud that I’m great at it?

Jessie J

Mitt Romney

I had an amazing childhood and always loved to sing and dance, but there were moments where I had ups and downs with my health that often tested me as it does many people.

Pop culture shapes our ideas of what is normal and what our dreams can be and what our roles are. Politics, of course, decides how the power and the money in the country is distributed. Both are equally important, and each affects the other.

Kyle Shewfelt

Jazz to me is a living music. It’s a music that since its beginning has expressed the feelings, the dreams, hopes, of the people.

Dexter Gordon

I think us women need to appreciate ourselves, and I think we need to really go after our dreams. Us Latinas tend to sacrifice too much for our husbands, our families, and our kids.

Sandra Echeverria

When we are motivated by goals that have deep meaning, by dreams that need completion, by pure love that needs expressing, then we truly live.

Greg Anderson

My mother always gives the best advice. When I left Puerto Rico to pursue my dreams, she always supported me and said to me, ‘I’m never going to cut your wings, so don’t let anyone else do that to you.’ That has been my philosophy through life. I want to share that valuable lesson with my little girl someday.

Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark

I believe history will come to view 9/11 as an event on par with November 22, 1963, the date on which John F. Kennedy was murdered, cutting short a presidency that was growing ever more promising. Dreams died that day in Dallas; it is easy to imagine the 1960s turning out rather differently had President Kennedy lived.

Jon Meacham

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.

Edgar Allan Poe

I’m sorry – I know America is supposed to be the land of the dreams and hopes, but it’s like, when was that actually a real thing?

Sasha Lane

Revelations are conveyed in a variety of ways, including, for example, dreams, visions, conversations with heavenly messengers, and inspiration. Some revelations are received immediately and intensely; some are recognized gradually and subtly.

Jayma Mays

The dirty little secret on Wall Street: Eighty percent of the Wall Street executives’ and their spouses’ donations go to Democrats. It’s like they’ve got some kind of little sweet deal, where we’ll call you fat cats and demean you and stuff, but you will get richer than your wildest dreams.

Louie Gohmert

We dream of having a clean house – but who dreams of actually doing the cleaning? We don’t have to dream about doing the work, because doing the work is always within our grasp; the dream, in this sense, is to attain the goal without the work.

Marcus Buckingham

I don’t think you should spend your life praying for things, but I do believe you should thank God for what He’s given you… but I think the scripture teaches us that we can pray for our dreams, pray for the big things… he’s not a small God; this God is incredible.

Joel Osteen

When I won in 2003, never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would win Wimbledon and have my kids seeing me lift the trophy, so this is pretty surreal. And yeah, I was almost shocked in the moment that it all came together so nicely.

Roger Federer

The only thing that comes to a sleeping man is dreams.

Pedro Calderon de la Barca

I want to find someone who’s really into something like I’m really into something, so that I can support them and we can both cheer each other on. I’ve got a lot of dreams I want to achieve, and I hope someone can cheer me on as I’ll cheer them on in their dreams.

I tell kids to pursue their basketball dreams, but I tell them to not let that be their only dream.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

We must not let our passions destroy our dreams.

Thomas S. Monson

I was very lucky in that my parents were very broad-minded. Because they had come from another country and hadn’t been able to fulfill their dreams, they wanted me to be more of myself, if you know what I mean.

Anne-Marie Duff

Married or unmarried, young or old, poet or worker, you are still a dreamer, and will one time know, and feel, that your life is but a dream.

I always had dreams. I knew I wanted to have money to buy things at the flea market. That’s worked out well.

Debi Mazar

I’m following my dreams and doing what I love as a designer. I did not want to be one of those kids with a famous last name that doesn’t do anything. That is very unfulfilling to me and I’m very happy.

Nicky Hilton

The worst thing you can do to a kid is tell them that their dreams are invalid.

Juliette Lewis

Intellectual despair results in neither weakness nor dreams, but in violence. It is only a matter of knowing how to give vent to one’s rage; whether one only wants to wander like madmen around prisons, or whether one wants to overturn them.

Georges Bataille

Maybe the body learns from dreams. Maybe the muscles, the neutrons, revitalize.

Michael Zaslow

It is the police of America who are on the front lines, who are on the streets, who are in the daily contact with American citizens, who translate the dreams of American citizens when they succeed and frustrate the dreams when they fail.

Janet Reno

Actually, I wanted to be a musician, either a guitarist or a drummer. I guess my dreams were in the entertainment industry, and I landed somewhere along there.

Marlee Matlin

Even in the hardest circumstances, dreams can give you the courage to live, and I hope I can share that message with children in need.

Kim Yuna

It was one of my dreams as a child, growing up in my little village with my cousins. We used to walk together, and I used to say, when you look at the world map, ‘This town is there, that town is there, that river is there.’ I used to say, ‘One day, I’m going to travel these places.’

Jimmy Cliff

Let your dreams outgrow the shoes of your expectations.

One day it just hit me. This is it. You are not in love. So either stay in it because you have a child or be brave and find the man of your dreams and marry him for real.

Brandy Norwood

Swimming is a life-saving skill, so just the fact that the sport that I love can give so much back to other people – and inspire them to join something that they never thought they could do or go after their dreams – is something that is really special to me.

Simone Manuel

A lot of people do not muster the courage to live their dreams because they are afraid to die.

Les Brown

There are a lot of things that are personally uncomfortable to show, especially me without makeup and completely bloated or crying. But I’ve realized that it’s time for me to show my audience that you don’t have to be perfect to achieve your dreams. Because nobody relates to being perfect.

Katy Perry

I’m aware of the mystery around us, so I write about coincidences, premonitions, emotions, dreams, the power of nature, magic.

Isabel Allende

I’ve done two ‘Hamlets,’ two ‘Lears,’ three ‘Midsummer Night’s Dreams’ – I’ve done most of these plays more than once, and every time I direct them, I learn things.

Jack O’Brien

Here Fashion is a despot, and no one dreams of evading its dictates.

Marguerite Gardiner

I probably revisit in my work the moment at which I realised that dreams couldn’t be reality.

Alice Lowe

Looking back 25 years later, what I may say is that the facts have been far better than the dreams. In the long course of cell life on this earth it remained, for our age for our generation, to receive the full ownership of our inheritance.

Albert Claude

Believe in and follow your dreams.

Kristanna Loken

Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us.

Wilma Rudolph

No one may speak for the dead, no one may interpret their mutilated dreams and visions.

Elie Wiesel

I am not ridiculing verbal mechanisms, dreams, or repressions as origins of poetry; all three of them and more besides may have a great deal to do with it.

Allen Tate

The only time you really live fully is from thirty to sixty. The young are slaves to dreams; the old servants of regrets. Only the middle-aged have all their five senses in the keeping of their wits.

Theodore Roosevelt

I prefer to be a dreamer among the humblest, with visions to be realized, than lord among those without dreams and desires.

Khalil Gibran

There is no reason we should expect young children to enter the nocturnal darkness of sleep and dreams without help.

Siri Hustvedt

That I am today the face of Louis Vuitton almost seems like a twist of fate. You dream back to front, wanting the rewards before putting the work in. And then you work, get on with life, and just sometimes these childhood dreams have a way of catching up with you. This is a true privilege for which I am eternally grateful.

Xavier Dolan

With ‘Street Fight,’ it took an urban mayoral election and found lots of complexity in there. The same with ‘Racing Dreams.’ I wanted to show complexity within this world that most documentary people don’t know anything about.

Marshall Curry

God, that dumping ground of our dreams.

Jean Rostand

My heroes, my dreams, and my future lay in Yankee Stadium. And they can’t take that away from me.

Derek Jeter

Whenever I start a ‘Potter’ film, I get these dreams. The last dream I had, I was in a war and the sky was blotted with broomsticks and I couldn’t find my wand. It was so intense. I always have mental, intense, war wizard dreams when I’m doing the films.

Natalia Tena

The path from dreams to success does exist. May you have the vision to find it, the courage to get on to it, and the perseverance to follow it.

Kalpana Chawla

My dream life is just to go back to my job full-time. And be with my family. You know, regular dreams, common dreams that everyone has.

Carla Bruni

I think everyone has dreams, and it’s just how you go about pursuing that. And I think anybody can do anything that they set their mind to. So if you set your mind to do something, and you exhaust every opportunity, I think you’re going to get there.

Jane Roberts

You know, the man of my dreams might walk round the corner tomorrow. I’m older and wiser and I think I’d make a great girlfriend. I live in the realm of romantic possibility.

Stevie Nicks

It is exactly because we are a city that embraces freedom, that welcomes everyone and encourages their dreams, that New York remains on the front lines in the war on terror.

Michael Bloomberg

Ask any parent what we want for our children, and invariably we say ‘a better life.’ To that end, we give our time, our sleep, our money, and our dreams, much as our parents did before us. We all want a better life for our children. But what we want for them ceases to matter if we leave them an unlivable world.

Leonor Varela

I don’t stand in anybody else’s way of accomplishing their dreams, and I don’t like people standing in my way, either. That seems like a hostile thing to do.

Jamey Johnson

We are such stuff as dreams are made on; and our little life is rounded with a sleep.

William Shakespeare

I was always a closet lover of acting. My mom was very practical. She never, ever restricted our dreams, always told us we could do or be anything. Then I said, ‘Maybe I want to be an actor’. And she said, ‘Maybe not that’.

Octavia Spencer

But what I was going to say was, I just figured I’m going to go boldly in the direction of my dreams, say it as Thoreau would say, and just see where it takes me.

Demetri Martin

In my dreams and visions, I seemed to see a line, and on the other side of that line were green fields, and lovely flowers, and beautiful white ladies, who stretched out their arms to me over the line, but I couldn’t reach them no-how. I always fell before I got to the line.

Harriet Tubman

Dreams do come true if you work hard and you get your head down.

Liz Murray

Israel desperately needs peace if it is to come anywhere close to being the ‘light unto nations’ of Jewish dreams.

Honestly, I don’t remember the last time I had a dream. I don’t really sleep often enough to be able to have any dreams.

Rob Kardashian

You don’t get old until you replace dreams with regrets.

Troy Dumais

My mom is the most amazing woman ever. She grew up a single mom raising five kids, and she’s always told me to follow my dreams. One thing I’ve learned about her is she sacrificed her whole life for me to focus on my dream, and I cannot wait to do that for my kids.

RaeLynn

Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.

Carl Jung

You gotta have a dream. If you don’t have a dream, how you gonna make a dream come true?

The permanent temptation of life is to confuse dreams with reality. The permanent defeat of life comes when dreams are surrendered to reality.

James A. Michener

If our dreams were more regular, more connected, more stable, they would also have more practical importance for us.

Ernst Mach

My dreams were at once more fantastic and agreeable than my writings.

Mary Shelley

We cast away priceless time in dreams, born of imagination, fed upon illusion, and put to death by reality.

Judy Garland

Just really, really believe in what you’re trying to do. Don’t let people alter that. Let people advise you and lead you down paths to make smart business decisions. But trust your instinct and trust that overwhelming drive that made you put all your dreams and everything on the line.

Luke Bryan

My mother dreamed dreams for Joaquin and for me long before we could dream them for ourselves.

Julian Castro

A player dreams of being a superstar, but he doesn’t want people flocking all over him asking for an autograph.

Linton Kwesi Johnson

I am definitely most proud of ‘American Dreams.’

Tom Verica

I’m not one of those actresses that’s going to feel like I never achieved my dreams and goals and just get disgruntled and hate everything about the business. I’ve had so much fun.

Ming-Na Wen

As I watched bookstores close, I began to wonder how that felt for the owners. Owning a bookstore was their dream and now they’re struggling and seeing those dreams fall apart.

Karen Kingsbury

I’ve had a life where things have worked out for me beyond my wildest dreams, and my brother’s had just the opposite.

Bill Paxton

The American Dream has run out of gas. The car has stopped. It no longer supplies the world with its images, its dreams, its fantasies. No more. It’s over. It supplies the world with its nightmares now: the Kennedy assassination, Watergate, Vietnam.

J. G. Ballard

This city can be kind of brutal, so you see your dreams from every different angle, but ultimately it’s about acting and if you enjoy acting, you will always enjoy acting.

Radha Mitchell

My professional dreams were coming true while I was living a personal nightmare.

Dane Cook

I envy people with dreams and passions, but I don’t think that way. I still don’t have a ‘bliss’ to follow. For people like me – I suspect that’s most people – holding out for a ‘dream’ or a ‘passion’ is paralyzing. I just like having work I enjoy that feels meaningful. That’s hard enough… but it’s enough.

Jane Pauley

The work of an advertising agency is warmly and immediately human. It deals with human needs, wants, dreams and hopes. Its ‘product’ cannot be turned out on an assembly line.

Leo Burnett

I love to fly. I always wanted to fly. It’s been one of my dreams since I was 3 years old. I remember saying to my mom, 3 years old, every day, ‘I can fly!’ Living on the ninth floor, it was dangerous.

Elena Anaya

Understand and accept the cycles of money. The setbacks you may have today or next year will not keep you from financial freedom. If you hold on to your goals and dreams, you will get there.

Suze Orman

I wanted to raise the voice of a lot of the people that I knew growing up, and this was, for the most part, poor people who had extraordinary dreams but also very amazing obstacles.

Edwidge Danticat

Short stories are tiny windows into other worlds and other minds and dreams. They are journeys you can make to the far side of the universe and still be back in time for dinner.

Neil Gaiman

My mother is my biggest role model, and she showed me how to do it right. She was very present in our lives and has a great career of her own. Same with my father. So I knew it was possible going in to stay closely connected to my children while also chasing big dreams. And it’s given me great perspective.

Kerri Walsh Jennings

Only in our dreams are we free. The rest of the time we need wages.

Terry Pratchett

Ground not upon dreams; you know they are ever contrary.

Thomas Middleton

Films are dreams. Many, many critics say to me that my films are not good because they are too unbelievable, but this is my style. I tell stories like they are dreams. This is my imagination. For me, it would be impossible to do a film that is so precise, that resembles real life.

Dario Argento

Freud published The Interpretation of Dreams in 1900. It introduced the notion that there existed certain predictable and identifiable processes by which dreams were formed.

Everyone always wants to find the answer, to feel that things are resolved. But in dreams, maybe there isn’t an answer so much.

Gore Verbinski

For anyone who’s a fan of the ‘X-files’ show – I mean, I have the ultimate role. I got to deal with Mulder. I got to talk to him; I had a fight sequence with him. Really, for anyone who is a fan of the show, I think I fulfilled a lot of young boys’ dreams.

Rhys Darby

Prime Minister Sharon, Prime Minister Abbas, I urge you today to end the designs of those who seek destruction, annihilation and occupation, and I urge you to have the will and the courage to begin to realize our dreams of peace, prosperity and coexistence.

Abdullah II of Jordan

If you were to ask my agent, they would confirm this: I’m drawn to locations. What really drew me to ‘The 4400,’ aside from the fact that it was sci-fi, was the fact that it was shot in the city of my dreams: Vancouver.

Billy Campbell

I have my own production company called Urban Dreams.

Chaske Spencer

The armored cars of dreams, contrived to let us do so many a dangerous thing.

Elizabeth Bishop

I do write all the time about – you tell me what your dreams are. What are you chasing? It’s not impossible. Name it.

Diana Nyad

My parents were super supportive of my big dreams; I was pretty lucky. I guess I became a musician because I didn’t see myself doing or loving anything else as much.

Madi Diaz

A friend told me that teenage girls are always looking for someone to pin their dreams on. That doesn’t make it any less weird though.

Orlando Bloom

If dreams are like movies, then memories are films about ghosts.

Adam Duritz

Being as it was one of my dreams to sing with one of the world’s greatest groups, for me to join ‘The Temptations’ was a great blessing.

Ali-Ollie Woodson

Fiction seeks to represent human experience as it is lived and as it reverberates in our hopes, fears, dreams, and memories. So much of our lives are internal. The art of fiction has claimed – more than anything else – this internal ground as its own.

Varley O’Connor

It isn’t a calamity to die with dreams unfulfilled, but it is a calamity not to dream.

Between the theme parks and the movies, the Disney iconography was probably the first set of archetypes that I was exposed to. Walt was able to expose me as a child to the full array of emotions, including fear and sorrow. Those movies and attractions haunted my dreams and made a deep impression on me as a child.

Jon Favreau

The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn, the bird waits in the egg, and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities.

James Allen

I didn’t want to escape my life and become a big actress and live my dreams. That was never the way it was; it was just these amazing opportunities that happened.

Maisie Williams

I want to see the next Reagan. I want somebody who brings out the good in Americans and challenges us to aspire to that North Star, someone who wants to empower our families and individuals and communities and let them be free to achieve their dreams. That’s what’s going to make this country again.

Bill Flores

Happiness is making your dreams come true.

Jourdan Dunn

Oh, I was never a businessman. I was a visionary, a dreamer.

Jim Bakker

If a man dreams that he has committed a sin before which the sun hid his face, it is often safe to conjecture that, in sheer forgetfulness, he wore a red tie, or brown boots with evening dress.

Arthur Machen

Stay focused, go after your dreams and keep moving toward your goals.

LL Cool J

The English expression ‘to fall asleep’ is apt because the transition between waking and sleeping is a gradual drop from one state of being into another: a giving up of full self-consciousness for unconsciousness or for the altered consciousness of dreams.

Look at a football field. It looks like a big movie screen. This is theatre. Football combines the strategy of chess. It’s part ballet. It’s part battleground, part playground.

Steve Sabol

The measure of who we are is what we do with what we have.

It is such a luxury to open a new book that’s highly recommended by friends – either an inspirational yet humorously self-deprecating memoir, or a page-turning piece of fiction.

Kelli O’Hara

I don’t dislike rappers or hip-hop or people who like it. I went to the Def Jam tour in Manchester in the ’80s when rap was inspirational. Public Enemy were awesome. But it’s all about status and bling now, and it doesn’t say anything to me.

Noel Gallagher

The best form of flattery is to be admired, imitated or respected. I’ve always felt proud our fans look up to us or feel we are inspirational.

Joe Klein

Lord, grant that I may always desire more than I can accomplish.

Michelangelo

What’s on my playlist when I’m fighting is not so much hip-hop. Sometimes, it’s something more inspirational. I get a chance to think about what I’m fighting for, like, my family. It takes me to that state because a lot of times, it’s a spiritual warfare for me.

Tyron Woodley

Silence is the last thing the world will ever hear from me.

Robert Quillen

Create each day anew.

Morihei Ueshiba

‘Get along, go along’ is not an inspirational philosophy, and only God knows how much moral cowardice it has covered up over the years. Serve your time, collect your chits, and cash ’em in for your home state? No, I’d say we could ask for more than that from our senators.

Molly Ivins

Light tomorrow with today!

Cecile McLorin Salvant

Every charitable act is a stepping stone toward heaven.

Henry Ward Beecher

Give light, and the darkness will disappear of itself.

Pablo Neruda

I try not to put anything political on the forefront of what I’m trying to do creatively. At the same time, I do think it’s wonderful when I hear people say that it’s inspirational that I’m an Indian woman on camera. My life is very diverse, and my friends are a diverse group of people.

Mindy Kaling

Antony Gormley

Who would have thought that a tap-dancing penguin would outpoint James Bond at the box office? And deserve to? Not that there’s anything wrong with ‘Casino Royale.’ But ‘Happy Feet’ – written and directed by George Miller – is a complete charmer, even if, in the way of most family fare, it can’t resist straying into the Inspirational.

Robert Gottlieb

Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.

Francis of Assisi

We are here to make another world.

W. Edwards Deming

If someone says ‘grunge’ or ‘punk,’ you know what the sound is, but if you say ‘No Wave,’ it’s kind of mysterious. That was the most interesting part and should have been the most inspirational thing about it… here’s this collective sonic insanity, and none of it sounds anything alike.

Lydia Lunch

Live your beliefs and you can turn the world around.

Henry David Thoreau

I used to make up stuff in my bio all the time, that I used to be a professional ice-skater and stuff like that. I found it so inspirational. Why not make myself cooler than I am?

I look up to a strong woman; maybe that’s why I fell for Gaga. She works incredibly hard and is very strong and inspirational like Mom, with a great work ethic.

Carter Burwell

The glow of one warm thought is to me worth more than money.

Thomas Jefferson

I’ve been known to write 10 pages a day for 10 days running before I take a breath. I am not a disciplined writer. I’m one of those people who laughingly call themselves inspirational writers, which basically means someone who has no control over their own creative process.

Catherine Ryan Hyde

I had hoped when my life was chronicled, it would be an inspirational story.

Om Puri

Rodney Atkins

Nurture your minds with great thoughts. To believe in the heroic makes heroes.

Benjamin Disraeli

‘Do What You Gotta Do’ is a positive, inspirational song that says no matter what it is; whether you’re up against challenges or trying to get your dreams and aspirations met, you should do what whatever you have to do shy of killing yourself or someone else.

Angie Stone

When I was working at the Sprint store, I got laid off. I was bummed out, but I stayed positive. I used the money I had earned while working there to make my first album. Without that job, maybe ‘Corazon Sin Cara’ would never had been made. It’s a very inspirational story.

Prince Royce

I said to the almond tree, ‘Friend, speak to me of God,’ and the almond tree blossomed.

In sports teams, apart from talk of sporting prowess and the imparting of inspirational thought, an extraordinary amount of time is spent discussing, and flaunting, material possessions.

Noble deeds that are concealed are most esteemed.

William Bartram

Reach for the stars.

Christa McAuliffe

Better to be called something positive and inspirational than something negative.

Donnie Yen

I think ‘Heroes of Cosplay’ will show a lot of the positive things, like how much effort it takes to make a costume. These people on the show aren’t taking shortcuts. As long as that effort gets through to the viewers, we will be inspirational. Then there will be people who watch the show that want to get in and hands-on make outfits.

Yaya Han

We convince by our presence.

Walt Whitman

The most beautiful thing in the world is, of course, the world itself.

Rabindranath Tagore

Jamie Johnson

I grew up in a bookless house – my parents didn’t read poetry, so if I hadn’t had the chance to experience it at school I’d never have experienced it. But I loved English, and I was very lucky in that I had inspirational English teachers, Miss Scriven and Mr. Walker, and they liked us to learn poems by heart, which I found I loved doing.

Carol Ann Duffy

We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.

Smokey Robinson

Your big opportunity may be right where you are now.

Napoleon Hill

Brand is not a product, that’s for sure; it’s not one item. It’s an idea, it’s a theory, it’s a meaning, it’s how you carry yourself. It’s aspirational, it’s inspirational.

James Allen

I’m very fond of the British cinema. I’m a big fan of Martin Campbell and Daniel Craig. I actually find Daniel very inspirational, especially on the physical side of things. He really inspired me to get back into shape when I started to add on a few pounds. I think he’s a great role model.

Steven Bauer

In oneself lies the whole world and if you know how to look and learn, the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either the key or the door to open, except yourself.

Jiddu Krishnamurti

At the end of the day, the one commonality that both Hindi cinema and Hollywood share is that they are full of talented and inspirational people. Outside of this, there are many differences, from the scheduling and rehearsal to promotion and directing techniques.

Nargis Fakhri

Inside, I’ve got a real purist desire and dream about the music. I like the idea of being able to carve out a kind of magical, colourful, artistic, inspirational life. And the reality just turns out to be quite different, working with the business to bring this thing you have created into the world.

Damien Rice

A human being has so many skins inside, covering the depths of the heart. We know so many things, but we don’t know ourselves! Why, thirty or forty skins or hides, as thick and hard as an ox’s or bear’s, cover the soul. Go into your own ground and learn to know yourself there.

Meister Eckhart

Be faithful to that which exists within yourself.

My father, Oliver Hynes, was an educator. He was originally just a teacher, a very good one, but then he was promoted to be in charge of education for the entire area. He was always an inspirational teacher. He was my big personal supporter, always coming here for the Tony Awards. My mother, Carmel, was a homemaker.

Garry Hynes

President Obama called for a ‘we’ nation in his Inauguration Address. Art convenes. It is not just inspirational. It is aspirational. It pricks the walls of our compartmentalized minds, opens our hearts and makes us brave. And that’s what we need most in our country today.

Anna Deavere Smith

The leaders who we admire who have been able to bring great change in the past – Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela – they’re all inspirational religious leaders and smart tacticians. It would be nice to find the Muslim Gandhi, wouldn’t it?

Dennis C. Blair

This CD became something of a personal journey for me. The tone of the whole CD is uplifting and inspirational. It’s an upper. We have enough downers in the world.

Roma Downey

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.

John F. Kennedy

If there were no night, we would not appreciate the day, nor could we see the stars and the vastness of the heavens. We must partake of the bitter with the sweet. There is a divine purpose in the adversities we encounter every day. They prepare, they purge, they purify, and thus they bless.

Since we launched the original ‘Pop Idol’ in England, I’ve remained close with Simon Fuller.

Nigel Lythgoe

Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.

Hans Christian Andersen

I am never without my lyric book. If anything inspirational happens, I have it there so nothing’s forgotten.

Gabrielle Aplin

We sing inspirational songs, songs of praise and worship, and about how good and how big God is. We are magnifying the Lord.
