“It is important to dream in the family. All mothers and fathers dream of their sons and daughters in the womb for nine months. They dream of how they will be. It isn’t possible to have a family without such dreams. When you lose this capacity to dream you lose the capacity to love, the capacity to love is lost. I recommend that at night when you examine your consciences, ask yourself if you dreamed of the future of your sons and daughters. Did you dream of your husband or wife? Did you dream today of your parents, your grandparents who carried forward the family to me? It is so important to dream and especially to dream in the family. Please don’t lose the ability to dream in this way. How many solutions are found to family problems if we take time to reflect, if we think of a husband or wife, and we dream about the good qualities they have. Don’t ever lose the memory of when you were boyfriend or girlfriend. That is very important.” – Pope Francis

“Realistic people with practical aims are rarely as realistic or practical in the long-run of life as the dreamers who pursue their dreams.” – Hans Selye

“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.” – Anatole France

“The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success, but significance – and then, even the small steps and little victories along your path will take on greater meaning.” – Oprah Winfrey

“Have faith in tomorrow for it can bring better days. Never wish for yesterday for it has gone its separate way. Believe in today for it’s what you’re living now. And dare to dream all your dreams for it’s not why but how!” – Tonya K. Grant
