Abou Ben Adhem (may his tribe increase!) Awoke one night from a deep dream of peace.
You can't figure him out like a fact, because to Reagan themainfact was avision? He came fromtheheartland of the country, where people could be down-to-earth yet feel that the sky is the limitnot ashamed of, or cynical about, the American dream.George P(ratt) Shultz
Half close your eyelids, loosen your hair, And dream about the great and their pride; They have spoken against you everywhere, But weigh this song with the great and their pride; I made it out of a mouthful of air, Their children's children shall say they have lied.
It does not matter much whom we live with in this world, but it matters a great deal whom we dream of.willa cather
So long as men shall be on earth, there will be tasks for them to do. Some way for them to show their worth. Each day shall bring its problems new. And men shall dream of mightier deeds than ever have been done before. There always shall be human needs for men to work and struggle for.edgar guest
A writer is a man like any other: he dreams. And my dream was to be able to say of this book, when I finished: 'This is a book about Alentejo'.josé saramago
I say to you today, my friends, so 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."
I have had a dream my whole life... and it was not this good.joss whedon
The curse which lies upon marriage is that too often the individuals are joined in their weakness rather than in their strength, each asking from the other instead of finding pleasure in giving. It is even more deceptive to dream of gaining through the child a plenitude, a warmth, a value, which one is unable to create for oneself; the child brings joy only to the woman who is capable of disinterestedly desiring the happiness of another, to one who without being wrapped up in self seeks to transcend her own existence.Simone de Beauvoir
It is our will That thus enchains us to permitted ill. We might be otherwise, we might be all We dream of happy, high, majestical. Where is the love, beauty and truth we seek, But in our mind? and if we were not weak, Should we be less in deed than in desire?Percy Bysshe Shelley
A face to lose youth for, to occupy age With the dream of, meet death with.Robert Browning
Sanity is madness put to good uses; waking life is a dream controlled.george santayana
Is this is a dream? O, if it be a dream, Let me sleep on, and do not wake me yet!Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Men rarely (if ever) manage to dream up a god superior to themselves. Most gods have the manners and morals of a spoiled child .
It is self-love and its offspring self-deception, which shut the gates of heaven, and lead men, as if in a delicious dream, to hell.christian scriver
The noiseless foot of Tune steals swiftly by And ere we dream of manhood, age is nigh.
My dream is but a fal'Cie's fancy now. End it.
Jesus , in some respects, was an anarchist, for he had no idea of civil government . That government seems to him purely and simply an abuse. A great social revolution, in which rank will be overturned, in which all authority in this world will be humiliated, was his dream .
My doom is, I love thee still. Let no man dream but that I love thee still.
Richard Nixon has never been one of my favorite people anyway. For years I've regarded his existence as a monument to all the rancid genes and broken chromosomes that corrupt the possibilities of the American dream; he was a foul caricature of himself, a man with no soul, no inner convictions, with the integrity of a hyena and the style of a poison toad. The Nixon I remembered was absolutely humorless; I couldn't imagine him laughing at anything except maybe a paraplegic who wanted to vote Democratic but couldn't quite reach the lever on the voting machine.hunter s. thompson
