Dreamers of the Day

"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that all was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, and make it possible." -T.E. Lawrence, "The Seven Pillars of Wisdom"

The Possibilities Are Endless

We fear our highest possibility (as well as our lowest).
We are generally afraid to become that which we can
glimpse in our most perfect moments…We enjoy and
even thrill to the godlike possibilities we see in
ourselves in such peak moments. And yet we
simultaneously shiver with weakness, awe and
fear before the very same possibilities.

-Abraham Maslow
