People are so busy dreaming the American Dream, fantasizing about what they could be or have a right to be, that they're all asleep at the switch. Consequently we are living in the Age of Human Error.
No person can maximize the American Dream on the minimum wage.
Benjamin Todd Jealous
If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.
William Arthur Ward
If you have a dream, you can spend a lifetime studying, planning, and getting ready for it. What you should be doing is getting started.
Everybody's youth is a dream, a form of chemical madness.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
I dream of painting and then I paint my dream.
Vincent Van Gogh
I think that nothing is impossible when you want to fulfill a dream. A lot of people will tell you that you can't do it, that you don't have what it takes, but if it is in your heart and you feel it, there is nothing that will stop you. It is like the sun - you can't block it: it will shine regardless, if that is what you want.
To me, the American Dream is being able to follow your own personal calling. To be able to do what you want to do is incredible freedom.
I always thought I wanted to play professionally, and I always knew that to do that I'd have to make a lot of sacrifices. I made sacrifices by leaving Argentina, leaving my family to start a new life. I changed my friends, my people. Everything. But everything I did, I did for football, to achieve my dream.
Deep in every heart slumbers a dream, and the couturier knows it: every woman is a princess.
They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.
Edgar Allan Poe
I part of this great nation because my grandfather was born here, in Cincinnati, Ohio. He took a horse, back in 1895, and ride it all the way down to Guanajuato, looking for his American dream. No penny in his pocket, only dreams in his head. And he was an immigrant coming from the States into Mexico. And he found his American dream in Mexico.
A dream becomes a goal when action is taken toward its achievement.
Surround yourself with smart, dedicated people - to build something isn't a one-man show. It's more important to have smart people who really believe in what you're doing than really experienced people who may not share your dream.
We all have our own life to pursue, our own kind of dream to be weaving, and we all have the power to make wishes come true, as long as we keep believing.
Louisa May Alcott
When you have a dream that you can't let go of, trust your instincts and pursue it. But remember: Real dreams take work, They take patience, and sometimes they require you to dig down very deep. Be sure you're willing to do that.
What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity devoid of troubling or depressing subject matter - a soothing, calming influence on the mind, rather like a good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue.
You see things; and you say 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say 'Why not?'
George Bernard Shaw
I love photography, I love food, and I love traveling, and to put those three things together would just be the ultimate dream.
You've got to eat while you dream. You've got to deliver on short-range commitments, while you develop a long-range strategy and vision and implement it. The success of doing both. Walking and chewing gum if you will. Getting it done in the short-range, and delivering a long-range plan, and executing on that.
You can't just sit there and wait for people to give you that golden dream. You've got to get out there and make it happen for yourself.
The American dream has now morphed into an expectation. And if it isn't provided, or if it doesn't happen, then people feel cheated.
People have to understand one thing: at the age of 18, I arrived at a dream club like Manchester United. It was a dream come true. But, even at that moment, I was thinking about playing in England for some years and then going to play in Spain. Even at that time I was thinking that way, and I always gave 100% everything.
How do you go from where you are to where you wanna be? And I think you have to have an enthusiasm for life. You have to have a dream, a goal. And you have to be willing to work for it.
My real dream is to have a whole, like, buy a whole piece of land. Imagine, like, a long driveway. Like, a cul de sac-type street, with maybe, like, seven houses. Me be right here. Have my mom be able to be right here. My brother over here. My girl's grandmother and family right here. Friends over there. That's my real dream.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
