Quotation Saturday

FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS
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.
--Harriet Tubman
 
Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.
--Pamela Vaull Starr
 
Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly.
--Lanston Hughes
 
The question for each man to settle is not what he would do if he had means, time, influence and educational advantages; the question is what he will do with the things he has. The moment a young man ceases to dream or to bemoan his lack of opportunities and resolutely looks his conditions in the face, and resolves to change them, he lays the corner-stone of a solid and honorable success.
--Hamilton Wright Mabie

GOALS
A man should have any number of little aims about which he should be conscious and for which he should have names, but he should have neither name for, nor consciousness concerning, the main aim of his life.
--Samuel Butler
 
Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp,
or what's a heaven for?
--Robert Browning
 
Every ceiling, when reached, becomes a floor, upon which one walks as a matter of course and prescriptive right.
--Aldous Huxley
 
It is not enough to take steps which may some day lead to a goal; each step must be itself a goal and a step likewise.
--Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
 
INSPIRATION
 
If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be.
Now put foundations under them.
--Henry David Thoreau
 
First say to yourself what you would be;
and then do what you have to do.
--Epictetus
