It is in vain to dream of a wildness distant from ourselves. There is none such. It is the bog in our brains and bowels, the primitive vigor of Nature in us, that inspires that dream. I shall never find in the wilds of Labrador a greater wildness than in some recess of Concord.
Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
I do not know how to distinguish between our waking life and a dream. Are we not always living the life that we imagine we are.
A friend is one who incessantly pays us the compliment of expecting from us all the virtues, and who can appreciate them in us. The friend asks no return but that his friend will religiously accept and wear and not disgrace his apotheosis of him. They cherish each other's hopes. They are kind to each other's dreams.
Dreams are the touchstones of our character.
I have learned, that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
Friends... they cherish one another's hopes. They are kind to one another's dreams.
We seem but to linger in manhood to tell the dreams of our childhood, and they vanish out of memory ere we learn the language.
Friends ... They are kind to each other's hopes. They cherish each other's dreams.
I was born upon thy bank, river, My blood flows in thy stream, And thou meanderest forever; At the bottom of my dream.
