Take this kiss upon the brow And, in parting from you now,Thus much let me avow--You are not wrong who deemThat my days have been a dreamYet if hope has flown awayIn a night, or in a day,In a vision, or in none,Is it therefore the less goneAll that we see or seemIs but a dream within a dream.
The pursuit of happiness" is an American myth. The ideologies and governments of this century that promised happiness, have left people with more material possessions, but less psychological well-being. Many of the citizens are emotionally bankrupt and unhappy. The demands of life in our current socioeconomic system require that we keep running and running with little or no breaks....Like their parents, most of the young professionals will drift through life racing for the "American Dream", going through very expensive trial-and-error lessons and struggling to achieve happiness and fulfillment.
We know not of the future, and cannot plan for it much. But we can hold our spirits and our bodies so pure and high, we may cherish such thoughts and ideals, and dream such dreams of lofty purpose, that we can determine and know what manner of men we will be whenever and wherever the hour stricks that calls to noble action..., No man becomes suddenly different from his habit and cherished thought.
We, as Humans, are distinct and unique in our capability to dream, and then strive to transform those Dreams into reality. The Dreams at night, seen with eyes wide shut, are nothing but illusions created by electronic impulses and waves within our brain and central nervous system. On the contrary, the Dreams seen in broad daylight, with our eyes wide open, are the most important ones, because we can pursue those diligently with total focus from our heart and mind, and soon make them come true in actuality. In my opinion, these Dreamers, Believers, Pursuers, Thinkers, Inventors, Innovators, Planners, Strategists, and Doers are the ones who change our world, and make it better and better than it was ever before. Our world needs billions and trillions of such Dreamers who will lead humanity to perfection. So, never let your Dreams fade away or die, especially those you've seen in the broad daylight, with eyes wide open. Go after your Dreams, relentlessly with perfect plan, passion and perseverance, no matter what others say or do. Good luck in making your Dreams come true.!
With Age comes the Experience and Expertise. Most importantly, it empowers one with a clear vision to see through the hour glass of life, as more sand has already escaped through it with time. Like an early morning dream, life becomes brighter, clearer, and much less mysterious the longer one lives. It's also the wonderful phase of crisp creativity and innovative inventions, in my view, because even the crooked paths start to appear straighter the longer one travels on those. Just like wine, even people mature with age, and offer their best to the world, more so than ever before. Cheers to Age, and exceptional Experience that comes with it!

Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them A desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have last-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
