Dream quotes can encourage us to keep dreaming, and to recognize the power that comes from keeping our dreams alive and vivid in our minds and hearts. Some of these quotes suggest that when we dare to dream, and allow the conviction of our desires to sweep us forward, we can create reality even beyond what we imagine.
Abdul Kalam tells us, “Great dreams of great dreamers are always transcended.”
Other dream quotes focus on the practicalities of dreaming, and remind us to believe in ourselves, and not to overlook the rationality of having dreams and allowing them to shape our lives.
As Harriet Tubman says, “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”
Gloria Steinem points out that, “Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning,” and Joy Page encourages us to “Dream and give yourself permission to envision a You that you choose to be.”
These next quotes center on the importance of having a dream and moving purposefully towards it in order to enjoy success. As Abdul Kalam succinctly states, “You have to dream before your dreams can come true.”
Henry David Thoreau says, “I have learned, that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”
Other great dream quotes talk about the significance of our dreams, not only in achieving success, but to the very quality of our lives and characters.
These inspiring words of Martin Luther King, Jr. tell us that dreams and hope keep us vital, alive, courageous and able to persevere. “If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all. And so today I still have a dream.”
From Malcolm Forbes comes the bold statement that, “When you cease to dream you cease to live.”
Some dream quotes discuss the relationship between dreaming and doing, and encourage us to follow our dreams with courage, confidence, and persistent practical action.
“The world needs dreamers and the world needs doers. But above all, the world needs dreamers who do.” Sarah Ban Breathnach
“Let go of the past and go for the future. Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you imagined.” Henry David Thoreau
“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” Walt Disney
The following dream quotes offer some interesting perspectives on dreams and dreaming.
“I like dreams of the future better than the history of the past.” Thomas Jefferson
“If a little dreaming is dangerous, the cure for it is not to dream less but to dream more, to dream all the time.” Marcel Proust
The next two dream quotes highlight the fact that refusing to accept our dreams are impossible is a key to making them a reality.
Debi Thomas makes light of the fact that what many people would consider stupid or impossible dreams have a very good possibility of becoming reality if they are given a chance. She says, “I tell people I'm too stupid to know what's impossible. I have ridiculously large dreams, and half the time they come true.”
From real-life superhero, Christopher Reeve, come these inspirational words: “So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.”
These final two dream quotes propose that dreams allow us to fast forward into the future, and that dreams are more real, more influential, than perceived ‘reality.’
Edgar Cayce tells us, “Dreams are today's answers to tomorrow's questions,” and according to Tupac Shakur, “Reality is wrong. Dreams are for real.”
Whatever your dreams are, work with me to unleash their power in your life, and allow yourself to be motivated into bold action. Dream it, decide it, dare it, do it.... and never stop dreaming.
