Such is the common process of marriage. A youth and maiden exchange meeting by chance, or brought together by artifice, exchange glances, reciprocate civilities, go home, and dream of one another. Having little to divert attention, or diversify thought, they find themselves uneasy when they are apart, and therefore conclude that they shall be happy together. They marry, and discover what nothing but voluntary blindness had before concealed; they wear out life in altercations, and charge nature with cruelty.

Samuel Johnson, Rasselas

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.

Edgar Allan Poe

That all men should be brothers is the dream of people who have no brothers.

Charles Chincholles

That which the dream shows is the shadow of such wisdom as exists in man, even if during his waking state he may know nothing about it... We do not know it because we are fooling away our time with outward and perishing things, and are asleep in regard to that which is real within ourself.

Philipus Aureolus Paracelsus

The cities and mansions that people dream of are those in which they finally live.

The dream is real, my friends. The failure to realize it is the only unreality.

The END of anything/any human counts more than it's/his/her beginning. Yes of course, it's only he/she that endures to the end or rather holds firm to his/her faith that will be saved at last. Moreover, it's the end of a vision/aspiration/dream that proves whether it's ordinary or extraordinary, true or false. Also, it's he/she that perseveres/persists to the end that can/will leap/reap the reward for hard-work i.e. genuine success. Likewise, it's he/she that eventually reaches/crosses the finish line that emerges a winner in a race. Besides, it's your last thoughts/words/actions that will determine your salvation or damnation on the day of reckoning. As a matter of fact, it's better for you to begin badly in anything/something and afterwards end up well in it. Than for you to begin well in something/anything and afterwards end up badly in it. For, that will entail nothing else but only a tragedy. Anyway, all of the above illustrations evidently signifies that, the END of anything/something/any human truly counts more than it's/his/her beginning. Therefore, I urge you to be more concerned with your end or the end of anything/anyone rather than your/it's/his/her begining. For surely, the END is ever the BOTTOM LINE. ~Emeasoba George.

The end of wisdom is to dream high enough to lose the dream in the seeking of it.

William Faulkner

The gap between ideals and actualities, between dreams and achievements, the gap that can spur strong men to increased exertions, but can break the spirit of others -- this gap is the most conspicuous, continuous land mark in American history. It is conspicuous and continuous not because Americans achieve little, but because they dream grandly. The gap is a standing reproach to Americans; but it marks them off as a special and singularly admirable community among the world's peoples.

George Will

The guts/courage to take a bold step forward is a leap/step of faith required as a milestone towards the realization/actualization of a/your dream/vision/aspiration. ~Emeasoba George.

Emeasoba George

The prospect of success in achieving our most cherished dream is not without its terrors. Who is more deprived and alone than the man who has achieved his 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.

Med Jones
