Dream Quotes To Inspire And Motivate You

Dream Quotes To Inspire And Motivate You

I just finished reading this great classical book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry called “The Little Prince” and in it I was reminded of a timeless lesson about dreaming big that I had to write about. In the book there is this really interesting character who is a child who dreams big and has great ideas but the grownups discourage him (much like how it often is in real life) and even go so far as labelling him as being “unrealistic” and “foolish”.

This made me think – why is dreaming and going against the grain of society considered foolish? When isn’t it the “dreamers” that we ironically all look up to? For example, Steve Jobs, Martin Luther King, Mother Teresa, Bill Gates, and Michael Jordan all are people who are considered to have gone above and beyond in their respective fields but all of them were irrational DREAMERS. They blindly with irrational hope went against thousands of obstacles and negativities because they in their hearts felt they could fulfill their dreams no matter what. This is why I strongly feel that dreaming and setting stretch goals is extremely important to becoming successful. Even if some dreams may seem unrealistic or super far-fetched (like maybe going to the moon?) they provide us with purpose and a target to aim for.

These 35 dream quotes you are about to read, are from different individuals, across different professions who believed in their abilities and were committed to make their dreams come true regardless of what came their way.
