THE question was once asked of a highly successful businessman: ‘How have you done so much in your lifetime? He replied: ‘I have dreamed. I have turned my mind loose to imagine what I wanted to do. Then I have gone to bed and thought about my dreams. In the night I dreamt about my dreams. And when I awoke in the morning, I saw the way to make my dreams real. While other people were saying, ‘You can’t do that, it isn’t possible’, I was well on my way to achieving what I wanted.’
As Woodrow Wilson, 28th President of the USA, said: ‘We grow by great dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day, or in the red fire on a long winter’s evening.
‘Some of us let these dreams die, but others nourish and protect them. They nourish them through the bad days until they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true. So please, don’t let anyone steal your dreams, or try to tell you they are too impossible. Sing your song, dream your dreams, hope your hope and pray your prayer.
