A Quote by Debi Thomas on dreams, impossibility, people, stupidity, and time

I tell people I'm too stupid to know what's impossible. I have ridiculously large dreams, and half the time they come true.

A Quote by Dean Alfrange on challenge, citizenship, dignity, dreams, existence, failure, freedom, fulfillment, life, opportunity, risk, security, success, trade, wishes, and world

It is my right to be uncommon . . . if I can; I seek opportunity . . . not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled and dulled by having the state look after me. I want to take the calculated risk; to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed. I refuse to barter incentive for a dole. I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence; the thrill of fulfillment to the stole calm of utopia. I will not trade freedom for beneficence nor my dignity for a handout. I will never cower before any master nor bend to any threat. It is my heritage to stand erect, proud, and unafraid; to think and act for myself; enjoy the benefits of my creations and to face the world boldly and say, 'This I have done, and this is what it means to be an American.'

A Quote by David Oman McKay on church, dreams, god, goodness, happiness, heaven, home, love, optimism, thankfulness, wishes, words, and world

I feel grateful and happy this morning for so many evidences of the goodness of the Lord that I wish I could strike a note of optimism that would reverberate to the uttermost parts of the Church. In the words of Frank L. Stanton: "This world o' God's is brighter Than we ever dream or know; Its burdens growin' lighter-- An' it's Love that makes 'em so! An' I'm thankful that I'm livin' Where Love's blessedness I see, 'Neath a Heaven that's forgivin' Where the bells ring 'Home' to me!"

David McKay (1873 - 1970)

A Quote by Dan Zadra on dreams, hope, and trying

Your hopes, dreams & aspirations are legitimate. They are trying to take you airborne, above the clouds, above the storms - if you will only let them.

A Quote by Dame Edith Sitwell on dreams, meaning, reality, and world

Rhythm is one of the principal translators between dream and reality. Rhythm might be described as, to the world of sound, what light is to the world of sight. It shapes and gives new meaning. Rhythm was described by Schopenhauer as melody deprived of its pitch.

A Quote by Dale Carnegie on dreams, garden, life, magic, nature, and tragedy

One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon-instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.

Dale Carnegie (1888 - 1955)

A Quote by Colby Dorr Dam on blindness, dreams, emotion, encouragement, eternity, feeling, future, guidance, hope, idealism, learning, love, people, soul, study, thinking, thought, time, understanding, water, and wishes

Each person has an ideal, a hope, a dream of some sort which represents his soul. In the long light of eternity this seed of the future is all that matters! We must find this seed no matter how small it is; we must give to it the warmth of love, the light of understanding and the water of encouragement. We must learn to deal with people as they are - not as we wish them to be. We must study the moral values which shape our thinking, arouse our emotions and guide our conduct. We must get acquainted with our inner stream and find out what's going on in our heads and hearts. We must put an end to blind, instinctive, sensory thought and feeling. We must take time to be human.

A Quote by William Clark Gable on arrogance, dreams, patriotism, slavery, victory, war, winning, and words

Disagreeing with the fervent patriotism of the Confederates: "I think it's hard winning a war with words, gentlemen. . . . I'm saying very plainly that the Yankees are better equipped than we. . . . All we've got is cotton and slaves, and arrogance." "I seem to be spoiling everybody's brandy and cigars and dreams of victory."

Clark Gable (1901 - 1960)
