Dreams

“All people dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their mind, wake in the morning to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous people, for they dream their dreams with open eyes, and make them come true.”

-T.E. Lawrence

    That’s a beautiful quote. I really like it.

    Not enough people believe it, though. In fact, from what I’ve seen, daydreaming and having an imagination is discouraged from childhood up.

    Penocular — it’s pretty close to “Penseroso”, isn’t it? I missed your company. Hope you don’t mind my dropping in again.

    Great quote….D.Peace has it right, we’re obsessed with action & results, we can’t give our children a moment’s peace to sit and just be lost in thoughts and daydreams. It’s interesting to see what’s valued & rewarded in our society: filling our time with an overflow of activities and busy-ness doesn’t leave a whole heck of alot of time to engage our brain in the important activity of developing our ideas and feeding our dreams.

    What a great quote. Without dreams, hopes and aspirations we are simply going through the motions of daily living. Without making the time to contemplate what our dreams mean we have no authentic base for creating goals and enjoying the progress of working towards achieving them. I’ve been reorganizing the systems my life and specifically including time for daydreaming, contemplation and meditation. Now I believe being labeled “a dreamer” is a compliment.
