Wednesday Musings

A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams.
John Barrymore

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

All of us failed to match our dreams of perfection. So I rate us on the basis of our splendid failure to do the impossible.
William Faulkner

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.
Walt Disney

All the things one has forgotten scream for help in dreams.
Elias Canetti

Dreams are true while they last, and do we not live in dreams?
Alfred Lord Tennyson

I am accustomed to sleep and in my dreams to imagine the same things that lunatics imagine when awake.
Rene Descartes

I tell people I'm too stupid to know what's impossible. I have ridiculously large dreams, and half the time they come true.
Debi Thomas

I think we dream so we don't have to be apart so long. If we're in each other's dreams, we can play together all night.
Bill Watterson

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

There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why... I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?
Robert Kennedy
