Some men see things as they are and ask, 'why' I dream things that never were and ask, 'why not'NB This quote is a paraphrase from a similar quote by G. B. Shaw.

Robert Francis Kennedy

To be, or not to be that is the question Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them To die to sleep No more and by a sleep to say we end The heartache and the thousand natural shocks That flesh is heir to,--'t is a consummation Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep To sleep perchance to dream ay, there's the rub For in that sleep of death what dreams may come, When we have shuffled off this mortal coil, Must give us pause there's the respect That makes calamity of so long life For who would bear the whips and scorns of time, The oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely, The pangs of despised love, the law's delay, The insolence of office and the spurns That patient merit of the unworthy takes, When he himself might his quietus make With a bare bodkin who would fardels bear, To grunt and sweat under a weary life, But that the dread of something after death, The undiscover'd country from whose bourn No traveller returns, puzzles the will And makes us rather bear those ills we have Than fly to others that we know not of Thus conscience does make cowards of us all And thus the native hue of resolution Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought, And enterprises of great pith and moment With this regard their currents turn awry, And lose the name of action.

William Shakespeare

Yesterday is a dream, tomorrow but a vision. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore to this day.

Sanskrit Proverb

Hope is not a dream but a way of making dreams become reality.

Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.

Everyone dreams, but not all equally. Those who dream at night in the misty recesses of their mind, often wake to find that it was unfulfilled passion: but day dreamers are dangerous folk, for they may open their eyes, to make dreams possible.

Paul. F. Meekin

If you can imagine it, you can achieve it.
If you can dream it, you can become it.

William Arthur Ward

'Tell me not, in mournful numbers, Life is but an empty dream!
For the soul is dead that slumbers, and things are not what they seem.
Life is real! Life is earnest! And the grave is not its goal;
Dust thou art; to dust returnest, Was not spoken of the soul.'

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

That's just a piece of advice and words of encouragement for you.

A failure is nobody else but anyone who fails to accomplish/complete whatever he/she has started already. Yes, you are not/can't be a failure until you withdraw/decline from accomplishing/completing your career, destiny, goal, mission, dream, vision, aspiration and what have you? So from now onward, endeavour by all means to accomplish/complete whatever you've left unfinished/unaccomplished all these while. Never forget, refusing to do just that will automatically make you a failure.

Emeasoba George

A guidance counselor who has made a fetish of security, or who has unwittingly surrendered his thinking to economic determinism, may steer a youth away from his dream of becoming a poet, an artist, a musician or any other of thousands of things, because it offers no security, it does not pay well, there are no vacancies, it has no future.

Henry M. Wriston
