Dare to Dream!

on July 23, 2013

Dare to dream the impossible for it too may one day be possible!
Life is no life at all without dreams…

Dream a little, live a little – Live a little, dream a lot – Dream a lot, live a lot – Your choice!

“Life is a song – sing it. Life is a game – play it. Life is a challenge – meet it. Life is a dream – realize it. Life is a sacrifice – offer it. Life is love – enjoy it.”

—Sai Baba (Indian leader, 1838–1918)

“The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn, the bird waits in the egg, and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities.”

—James Allen (British philosophical writer, 1864–1912)

Life is a trail of tears, the will to cope
A mountain of discomfort based on hope
It is a highway of dreams, a road very demanding
Out of balance at times, but not without understanding

—Sharla Lee Shults, catnipoflife

        Hi there! Hmmm I heard someone mention a strange phrase like that somewhere lately… “Sometime to yourself” I just don’t understand it though… What is it? I think it must be an elusive wild animal! (giggles)

    I love that song and Jim Nabors singing it! I just read that at 82 he married his partner of 38 years when gay marriage became legal in Washington state (they live in Hawaii)…. good for him!

    Sai Baba was a holy man. Did not die 1918, died a few years ago. A very interesting man.

      Just pulled it from the web. Found two references since your comment. Sai Baba of Shirdi (unknown – October 15, 1918), also known as Shirdi Sai Baba, was an Indian guru, yogi, and fakir who is regarded by his devotees as a saint. Śri Sathya Sai Baba (born as Sathyanarayana Raju; 23 November 1926 – 24 April 2011) claimed to be the reincarnation of Sai Baba of Shirdi who was considered by his followers to be an avatar, spiritual saint and miracle worker, and who died in 1918.
