A silent prayer, like dreamers do, then I fall asleep to dream my dreams of you.

The way to find what is possible is by going beyond possible to the impossible.
We become failures only when we begin to blame someone else.
There are some people who live in a dream world, and some who face reality.
And then there are those who turn one into the other.
( Douglas Everett )
It’s who you are, and not what you have, that makes others respect you.
Do not wish to be anything other than what you are. And try to be that perfectly.

It is never too late to become the person you were meant to be.
I think how we live our lives is our own doing, and we cannot fully hope on dreams and stars. But dreams and stars can guide us, perhaps.
What life are we living, if we don’t live by our hearts? Not a true one.
And the person living it is not the true you.
( Susan Fletcher )
Those you choose to be in your life influence the direction of your life.
Our behaviour when no one is watching is more important than when others are watching.
By the truth we are undone. Life is a dream. It is the waking that kills us.
He who robs us of our dreams robs us of our life.
( Virginia Woolf )
To change our lives, we must first change our minds.
We don’t always know what makes us happy. We know, instead, what we think should.
We are baffled and confused when our attempts at happiness fail.
We are mute when it comes to naming accurately our own preferences, delights, gifts, talents. The voice of our original self is often muffled, overwhelmed, even strangled, by the voices of other people’s expectations.
The tongue of the original self is the language of the heart.
( Julie Cameron )

After all those years as a woman hearing ‘not thin enough, not pretty enough, not smart enough, not this enough, not that enough,’ almost overnight I woke up one morning and thought, ‘I’m enough.’
( Anna Quindlen )
If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next.
It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this.

There wouldn’t be a sky full of stars if we were all meant to wish on the same one.

And if we get lucky, and our wish is granted, maybe that’s what we call happiness.
( Sakura )
Even when I’m alone I have real good company.
Dreams and imaginations and pretendings.

Don’t be pushed by your problems. Be led by your dreams.
( Ralph Waldo Emerson )
Everyone, when they are young, knows what their destiny is.
At that point in their lives, everything is clear and everything is possible.
They are not afraid to dream, and to yearn for everything they would like to see happen to them in their lives.
( Paulo Coelho )
We had so many dreams as children. Where do they go when we grow?
Are they swallowed up by the mundane things of everyday life?
Or do we lose them, leave them behind us in the dust, for new children to find and take up?
( Helen Hollick )
A daily dose of daydreaming heals the heart, soothes the soul, and strengthens the imagination.
( Richelle E. Goodrich )
We are more curious about the meaning of dreams than about things we see when awake.
( Diogenes Laertius )
We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.
( Joseph Campbell )

( Charles Dickens )
It is one thing to be clever and another to be wise.

Wisdom cannot be imparted.
Wisdom that a wise man attempts to impart always sounds like foolishness to someone else. Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom. One can find it, live it, do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it.
( Hermann Hesse )
Whether we have it all or we have nothing, we are all faced with the same obstacles. Sadness, loss, illness, dying and death.
If we are to strive as human beings to gain more wisdom, more kindness and more compassion, we must have the intention to grow as a lotus and open each petal one by one.

Being fake about anything creates a block inside of you.
Life can’t work for you if you don’t show up as you.
( Jason Mraz )
We don’t receive wisdom. We must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us.
( Marcel Proust )
You cannot teach a man anything, you can only help him find it within himself.
( Galileo Galilei )
Never ignore someone’s problem.
What may be nothing to you, may be everything to them.
Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.
( Diana, Princess of Wales )
Try not to become a man of success. Rather become a man of value.
( Albert Einstein )
