Quote of the Day
- Page 39
I like songs and film because you can turn your life into a sort of myth or dream.
I don't have dreams. How can I say it? I myself am a dream.
For me, a dream partner is someone who is willing to learn and to put their trust in me.
Man is never always happy, and very often only a brief period of happiness is granted him in this world; so why escape from this dream which cannot last long?
Remember the Dreamers whose patriotism was praised when the Democratic House passed, and the Senate filibustered - the DREAM Act in 2010? Washington promised a path to citizenship, not just a roadblock to deportation.
The dream is real, my friends. The failure to realize it is the only unreality.
Toni Cade Bambara
My dream was to become a very small blonde movie star like Ida Lupino and those other women I saw up there on the screen during the Depression.
A lot of people are living in a dream world - they want to deny that aging occurs or believe it doesn't have to occur. They'll hold on to this belief until the moment they die. The reality will eventually hit them.
S. Jay Olshansky
The journey toward your Big Dream changes you. In fact, the journey itself is what prepares you to succeed at what you were born to do.
I am the most well-adjusted human being I know. I started out this investigation as a very happy man with a great career. I've got the life people dream about: I am rich, I am famous, I've got a fabulous marriage to an absolutely, spell-bindingly brilliant woman.
My dream is to have a beautiful old house in Monaco.
It is the mass dream of inverted self, populous with fears overt and secret, that forms the continuous but gossamer thread upon which are strung as phantom beads all civilizations from the remotest past of record to that of the present day and hour.
There are a lot of people who dream of overnight success, of being Brad Pitt getting discovered for 'Thelma and Louise,' but that doesn't always happen. I represent that stick-to-it-ness that it takes to build a career over time, guest spot by guest spot. Looking back from here, I wouldn't have wanted the journey to go any other way.
As a young girl, my real dream was to be the woman in the shows at SeaWorld.
Photographers usually want to photograph facts and things. But I'm interested in the nature of the thing itself. A photograph of someone sleeping tells me nothing about their dream state; a photograph of a corpse tells me nothing about the nature of death. My work is about my life as an event, and I find myself to be very temporal, transient.
As technology continues to increase our possibilities, what we're seeing is a shrinking of the lag time between what we dream about and what we create.
If you can figure out how to get paid to do something you love, that's the dream.
My dream was to play football for the Oakland Raiders. But my mother thought I would get hurt playing football, so she chose baseball for me. I guess moms do know best.
I suppose there must be idiots who dream of signing deals with publishers while fully intending to drink martinis in cool bars or ride around on skateboards. But the actual writers I know are experts in neurotic self-torture. Every page of writing is the result of a thousand tiny decisions and desperate acts of will.
I feel not unlike a small boy, waking from a bad dream to find reality not much of an improvement.
The American dream is under assault.
James A. Forbes
I believe that a dream un-followed turns into all kinds of bad things in the lives of those who don't pursue them.
Whenever I dream about flying, it's the best feeling in the world.
My dream is to have a baby, not to adopt one, because I am not up to it and I don't feel strong enough. I want my own child, a biological child, the fruit of my sperm, conceived through artificial insemination because it wouldn't make sense for me to make love to a woman I don't love.
I guess life offers you opportunities to live your dream. We just have to accept what comes our way and live those moments completely. You will not get back this time again, so live every moment you get.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
John F. Kennedy
