A dream gives you ambitions

Some notable quotes:

"Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, magic, and power in it." --Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

"It's never too late to be who you might have been." --George Elliot

"The tragedy in life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach." --Benjamin Mays

  1. Hehehe I'm first tara ra ra ra ra! FG this is one of your best write ups.
    i concur with you that O! afterall what is the essence of life in itself without a dream?

  2. Inspirational and motivational post.

    Btw, did you check out that book? (I think I mentioned it in one of the comments I wrote sometime ago)
    i.e Bishop Jakes' new best-seller book- Repositioning yourself: Living life without limits.

    He mentioned similar ideas to what you talked about in this post.

    Have a great weekend.

  3. i feel you on this one. one thing i believe is why why why would i waste my precious life living the norm, when i can carve my own niche and write my own story?

  4. I always ask myself what my purpose in life is but i havnt found out yet. I hope to soon.
    Nice post.

  5. There is nothing as great as being your own person. It takes the grace of God.

  6. I 'dream' a lot and also fantasize. One of which is that i'll buy an ISland and sail away on a yatcht. Dreams are very essential for living a purposeful life.

    When one dreams. however, one should work towards actualizing that dream. After all, Joseph transformed from a slave to a KING and he was a dreamer!
