Dream a little dream

Today I’m grateful for

Those that look at the world, not as it is, but as it could be. Sometimes they even manage to carry us along with them.

Some people get in trouble for their dreams …

(Poor poor Joseph dreamed of a coat and was a victim of attempted fraticide.)

Some dreamers can only find one or two people to follow their dream …
(Okay – but he was running after windmills. I’ve done that at times.)
Some that are not even human manage to get an entire company to join them in their dream.
But, so far we’re talking fiction. (Okay – maybe a few bible literalists might say the entire story of Joseph is completely true – but face it they’re not likely reading this blog).
Some people, very few people, can have powerful dreams and have millions dream along with them.

It’s been a long time, and we’ve come a long way, but not quite far enough.

We need men who can dream of things that never were.
– John F. Kennedy
So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.
– Christopher Reeve
Now, I say to you today my friends, even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’
– Martin Luther King, Jr.
A culture is only as great as its dreams, and its dreams are dreamed by artists.
– L. Ron Hubbard, Science of Survival
There are those who look at things the way they are and ask why … I dream of things that never were, and ask why not.
– Bobby Kennedy
What’s your dream?? What’s mine??

  1. A great post, RM. My dream is to figure out where to go from here. I enjoy your writing, esp. these “grateful” threads. Have you been watching Oprah or something?
