Dreams, dreamers and dreaming

dream2Imagination, visions and
where we are going…

You may say I’m a dreamer,
but I’m not the only one.
I hope someday you’ll join us.
And the world will live as one.
John Lennon


 

“Hold fast to dreams,
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly.”
Langston Hughes

Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.
Albert Einstein

“Some might think that the creativity, imagination, and flights of fancy that give my life meaning are insanity.”
Vladimir Nabokov


 

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined.”
Henry David Thoreau

visions1“You said, ‘They’re harmless dreamers and they’re loved by the people.’ ‘What,’ I asked you, ‘is harmless about a dreamer, and what,’ I asked you, ‘is harmless about the love of the people? Revolution only needs good dreamers who remember their dreams.”
Tennessee Williams

“You are never too old to set another goal or to
dream a new dream.
― 
C. S. Lewis


The world of reality has its limits; the world of imagination is boundless.
Jean-Jacques Rousseau



visions2
All people dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their mind, wake in the morning to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous people, For they dream their dreams with open eyes, And make them come true.
D.H. Lawrence

“All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.
Edgar Allan Poe


 

visions3“Our life is composed greatly from dreams, from the unconscious, and they must be brought into connection with action. They must be woven together. ”
Anaïs Nin

 
“My own heroes are the dreamers, those men and women who tried to make the world a better place than when they found it, whether in small ways or great ones. Some succeeded, some failed, most had mixed results… but it is the effort that’s heroic, as I see it. Win or lose, I admire those who fight the good fight.
George R.R. Martin

“Dreams, if they’re any good, are always a little bit crazy. ”
Ray Charles

“Yes: I am a dreamer. For 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, The Critic as Artist


 

dc“I’ll let you be in my dreams if I can be in yours
Bob Dylan,
Lyrics:1962 2001

 

Arundhati Roy“Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it.  To deprive it of oxygen.  To shame it. To mock it.  With our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance, our sheer relentlessness – and our ability
to tell our own stories. Stories that are different from the ones we’re being brainwashed to believe.”
Arundhati Roy
