Best Dreams Short Quote
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

H. Jackson Brown Jr.

Best Dreams Short Quote
Hold fast to dreams,
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly.

I like the night. Without the dark, we'd never see the stars.

Stephenie Meyer , Twilight


Best Dreams Short Quote
Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.

Edgar Allen Poe


We live and breathe words. .... It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone. They could be honest with me, and I with them. Reading your words, what you wrote, how you were lonely sometimes and afraid, but always brave; the way you saw the world, its colors and textures and sounds, I felt--I felt the way you thought, hoped, felt, dreamt. I felt I was dreaming and thinking and feeling
with
you. I dreamed what you dreamed, wanted what you wanted--and then I realized that truly I just wanted you.

Cassandra Clare , Clockwork Prince


Best Dreams Short Quote
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

Eleanor Roosevelt


People think dreams aren't real just because they aren't made of matter, of particles. Dreams are real. But they are made of viewpoints, of images, of memories and puns and lost hopes.

Neil Gaiman


I think we dream so we don’t have to be apart for so long. If we’re in each other’s dreams, we can be together all the time.

Winnie the Pooh , Winnie-the-Pooh


I dream. Sometimes I think that's the only right thing to do.

Haruki Murakami , Sputnik Sweetheart


Best Dreams Short Quote
A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.

John Lennon


Best Dreams Short Quote
You can have it all. Just not all at once.

Oprah Winfrey


Yes, I was infatuated with you: I am still. No one has ever heightened such a keen capacity of physical sensation in me. I cut you out because I couldn't stand being a passing fancy. Before I give my body, I must give my thoughts, my mind, my dreams. And you weren't having any of those.

Sylvia Plath , The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath


Best Dreams Short Quote
Hope is a waking dream.

Aristoteles


Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people.

Henry Thomas Buckle


He felt that his whole life was some kind of dream and he sometimes wondered whose it was and whether they were enjoying it.

Adams Douglas , The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy


Best Dreams Short Quote
Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.

Anaïs Nin


Best Dreams Short Quote
Dare to live the life you have dreamed for yourself. Go forward and make your dreams come true.

Best Dreams Short Quote
Dreams are the touchstones of our characters.

Henry David Thoreau


No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dreams that you wish will come true.

Walt Disney Company


If you can dream it, you can do it. Always remember that this whole thing was started with a dream and a mouse.

Walt Disney Company


Best Dreams Short Quote
If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.

Henry David Thoreau , Walden


Best Dreams Short Quote
I used to think as I looked out on the Hollywood night — there must be thousands of girls sitting alone like me, dreaming of becoming a movie star. But I'm not going to worry about them. I'm dreaming the hardest.

Marilyn Monroe


Ester asked why people are sad.
"That’s simple," says the old man. "They are the prisoners of their personal history. Everyone believes that the main aim in life is to follow a plan. They never ask if that plan is theirs or if it was created by another person. They accumulate experiences, memories, things, other people's ideas, and it is more than they can possibly cope with. And that is why they forget their dreams.

Paulo Coelho , The Zahir


Sometimes the dreams that come true are the dreams you never even knew you had.

Alice Sebold


A book is a dream that you hold in your hands."

Neil Gaiman


I have dreamt 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. And this is one: I'm going to tell it - but take care not to smile at any part of it.

Емили Бронте , Wuthering Heights


Best Dreams Short Quote
I learned this, at least, by my experiment; that 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


Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete? Proving nature's laws wrong, it learned to walk without having feet. Funny, it seems to by keeping it's dreams; it learned to breathe fresh air. Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else even cared.

Tupac Shakur , The Rose That Grew from Concrete


The answer is dreams. Dreaming on and on. Entering the world of dreams and never coming out. Living in dreams for the rest of time.

Murakami Haruki , Sputnik Sweetheart


Best Dreams Short Quote
I'll let you be in my dreams if I can be in yours

Bob Dylan


Best Dreams Short Quote
It is by no means an irrational fancy that, in a future existence, we shall look upon what we think our present existence, as a dream.

Edgar Allen Poe


Be careful what you water your dreams with. Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream. Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success. Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success. Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream.

Lao Tzu


A man must dream a long time in order to act with grandeur, and dreaming is nursed in darkness.

Jean Genet


Best Dreams Short Quote
Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Louisa M. Alcott


You never know what's around the corner. It could be everything. Or it could be nothing. You keep putting one foot in front of the other, and then one day you look back and you've climbed a mountain.

Tom Hiddleston


I wish you to know that you have been the last dream of my soul.

Chareles Dickens , A Tale of Two Cities


Closed in a room, my imagination becomes the universe, and the rest of the world is missing out.

Criss Jami


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

William Shakespeare , The Tempest


I missed the future. Obviously I knew even before his recurrence that I'd never grow old with Augustus Waters. But thinking about Lidewij and her boyfriend, I felt robbed. I would probably never again see the ocean from thirty thousand feet above, so far up that you can't make out the waves or any boats, so that the ocean is a great and endless monolith. I could imagine it. I could remember it. But I couldn't see it again, and it occurred to me that the voracious ambition of humans is never sated by dreams coming true, because there is always the thought that everything might be done better and again.

John Green , The Fault in Our Stars


Best Dreams Short Quote
Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.

Henry David Thoreau


It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else.

Erma Bombeck


We are the music-makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams.
World-losers and world-forsakers,
Upon whom the pale moon gleams;
Yet we are the movers and shakers,
Of the world forever, it seems.

Arthur O'Shaughnessy , Poems of Arthur O'Shaughnessy


Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all is a form of planning.

Gloria Steinem via Lynn Gilbert


No person has the right to rain on your dreams.

Martin Luther King Jr.



A Dream Within A Dream
Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.
I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

Edgar Allen Poe , Great Tales and Poems
