Positive Quote on Dreams

To accomplish great things, we must dream as well as act.
Anatole France

Hope is a waking dream.
Aristotle, Greek Philosopher

Dreams are only thoughts you didn't have time to think about during the day.
Author Unknown

If somone believes in you,
and you believe in your dreams,
it can happen.
Tiffany Loren Rowe

If you can dream it, you can do it.

Walt Disney

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.


You see things; and you say, "Why?" But I dream things that never were;
and I say, "Why not?

George Bernard Shaw

Be careful what you wear to bed at night, you never know who you'll meet in your dreams.


We have got to have a dream if we are going to make a dream come true.

Denis E. Waitley

It's not enough to have a dream, Unless you're willing to pursue it. It's not enough to know what's right, Unless you're strong enough to do it. It's not enough to learn the truth, Unless you also learn to live it. It's not enough to reach for love, Unless you care enough to give it Men who are resolved to find a way for themselves will always find opportunities enough; and if they do not find them, they will make them.

Samuel Smiles

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

Ralph Waldo Emerson

The dream is the small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul, which opens to that primeval cosmic night that was soul long before there was conscious ego and will be soul far beyond what a conscious ego could ever reach.

Carl Jung, German psychologist

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

Dreams are like stars, you may never touch them, but if you follow them they will lead you to your destiny.


We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day, or in the red fire of a long winter's evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through the bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.

Woodrow Wilson

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.

Mark Twain

I have no theory about dreams, I do not know how dreams arise. And I am not at all sure that - my way of handling dreams even deserves the name of a "method." I share all your prejudices against dream-interpretation as the quintessence of uncertainty and arbitrariness. On the other hand, I know that if we meditate on a dream sufficiently long and thoroughly, if we carry it around with us and turn it over and over, something almost always comes of it. This something is not of course a scientific result to be boasted about or rationalized; but it is an important practical hint which shows the patient what the unconscious is aiming at. Indeed, it ought not to matter to me whether the result of my musings on the dream is scientifically verifiable or tenable, otherwise I am pursuing an ulterior-and therefore autoerotic-aim. I must content myself wholly with the fact that the result means something to the patient and sets his life in motion again. I may allow myself only one criterion for the result of my labours: does it work? As for my scientific hobby-my desire to know why it works-this I must reserve for my spare time.

The Aims of Psychotherapy

No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are, raise your sights and see the possibilities - always see them, for they are always there.

Norman Vincent Peale

Whatever you can dream, begin to do it. Boldness has the power and magic in it.


We grow great by dreams ... Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they [flourish]; bring them to the sunshine and light, which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.

Woodrow Wilson

Wake up in the morning with a dream in my eyes.

Allen Ginsberg

The end of wisdom is to dream high enough to lose the dream in the seeking of it.

William Faulkner

To accomplish great things, we must not only act,
but also dream; not only plan,
but also believe.

Anatole France

We make realities out of our dreams and dreams out of our realities. We are the dreamers of the dream.

Roald Dahl

Your vision will become clear only when you
look into your heart.
Who looks outside, dreams.
Who looks inside, awakens.

Carl Jung

I didn't even dream it would be so good. But I would never let my children come close to the thing

Vladimir Zworykin, inventor of television

Nothing happens unless first a dream.

Carl Sandburg

Dream no small dreams for
they have no power
to move the hearts of men.

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.

Henry David Thoreau

The work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives and the Dreams shall never die.

Edward Kennedy

It is difficult to say what is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow.

If you don’t have dream how can you make a dream come true?
Oscar Hammerstein

You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
James Froude


  1. I believe in dreams, and also believe that these dreams are the ones shaping my destiny.

  2. Dream with caution. Not everything is attainable just 'cause you can think it. Don't waste your time on the impossible. You need at least a 50/50 chance.
