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.

I’m sick of following my dreams. I’m just going to ask them where they’re goin’, and hook up with them later.

Books are mind reading devices; they allow us free access to the thoughts and dreams of people we have never met.
Grit is that ‘extra something’ that separates the most successful people from the rest. It’s the passion, perseverance, and stamina that we must channel in order to stick with our dreams until they become a reality.

Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel first championed my film, ‘Hoop Dreams,’ which was essential to its success. Roger remained a great supporter of my work throughout my career, and I’ll never forget him tweeting about ‘The Interrupters’ right before its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in 2011.
I hope my children just grow up happy and pursue their dreams. I mean, that’s all I can ask of them.

Arlie Russell Hochschild

Technically a memoir, ‘The Woman Warrior’ becomes almost magical through its inclusion of folk tales, dreams, and revisions.
Karen Joy Fowler
The usual comment from psychologists and psychiatrists was that it’s best not to encourage people to look at their dreams because they are liable to stir up problems for themselves.

Perhaps life is just that… a dream and a fear.
Take pleasure in your dreams; relish your principles and drape your purest feelings on the heart of a precious lover.
Giotto di Bondone
Believe in love. Believe in magic. Hell, believe in Santa Clause. Believe in others. Believe in yourself. Believe in your dreams. If you don’t, who will?
Jon Bon Jovi
Hollywood has always been a cage… a cage to catch our dreams.
I don’t think the dreams die – I think that people give up. I think it gets too hard.
I think there are a number of things that you can do to encourage your kids’ dreams, but I do believe in speaking by experience of having a lot of help along the way, stumbling in the past. We’ve all stumbled, and we certainly all deserve to get up and walk again.
Too many people chase dreams that they don’t understand. Too many people try to go for things that they’d like to do, but they’re not realistic enough to know they don’t have the talent.
I love dreams.
My dad had to work for everything in his life; so did my mum: she cleaned people’s houses and looked after old people. You can be complacent and sit on the couch and complain about the dreams that you missed. Get off the couch!
Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.
Henry David Thoreau
The world is full of people who have dreams of playing at Carnegie Hall, of running a marathon, and of owning their own business. The difference between the people who make it across the finish line and everyone else is one simple thing: an action plan.
The success I have achieved in bodybuilding, motion pictures, and business would not have been possible without the generosity of the American people and the freedom here to pursue your dreams.
I mean, I’m 48 years old and I’ve been through a lot in my life – you know, loss, whether it be death, illness, separation. I mean, the failed expectations… We all have dreams.

All women are not the same, all men are not the same, all children are not the same. It’s the same thing with trans people – we’re all so different, we have different goals, different dreams, and different aspirations.
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.
Jon Huntsman, Jr.
I have crazy claustrophobic dreams, weird elevator dreams where the elevator closes in and all of a sudden I am lying down – oh my God, it’s a casket. Just freaky stuff like that.
People think it’s funny that I enjoy dreaming so much. I just use it as a form of entertainment. It’s very private. I don’t see my dreams as separate. I mean, half the time I’m wandering around dreaming anyway.
I wish I could play the World Cup; that’s one of my dreams.
I love the Western genre. In fact, one of my dreams is to play a cowboy on screen, like Clint Eastwood. I don’t think it’s going to happen, but you can always hope.

Gradually it occurred to me that we spend a great deal of life asleep and that dreams are little narratives, little stories. I thought, ‘Who’s choreographing this stuff?’
