Dreams are the seedlings of realities

We are such stuff as dreams are made on; and our little life is rounded with a sleep.

~ William Shakespeare

Just what future the Designer of the universe has provided for the souls of men I do not know, I cannot prove. But I find that the whole order of Nature confirms my confidence that, if it is not like our noblest hopes and dreams, it will transcend them.

~ Henry Norris Russell

…in the state of sleep, [the spirit] sees without eyes, it hears without ears, it speaks without a tongue, it runs without feet… How often it happens that the spirit has a dream in the realm of sleep whose purport comes to be exactly materialized two years hence! Likewise, how often it happens that in the world of dreams the spirit solves a problem that it could not solve in the realm of wakefulness.

Awake, the eye sees only a short distance, but in the realm of dreams one who is in the East may see the West… For the spirit has two modes of travel: without means, or spiritual travel, and with means, or material travel—as birds that can fly, or as being carried in a vehicle.

While asleep, this physical body is as dead: It neither sees, nor hears, nor feels, and it has neither consciousness nor perception—its powers are suspended. Yet the spirit is not only alive and enduring but also exerts a greater influence, soars to loftier heights, and possesses a deeper understanding.

~ Abdu’l-Baha

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

~ Anatole France

The ninety and nine are with dreams, content but the hope of the world made new, is the hundredth man who is grimly bent on making those dreams come true.

~ Edgar Allan Poe

Visions are worth fighting for. Why spend your life making someone else’s dreams?

~ Tim Burton

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

The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn, the bird waits in the egg, and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities.

~ James Allen

You have to dream before your dreams can come true.

~ A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

I don’t think you should spend your life praying for things, but I do believe you should thank God for what He’s given you… but I think the scripture teaches us that we can pray for our dreams, pray for the big things… he’s not a small God; this God is incredible.

~ Joel Osteen
