People are afraid to pursue their most important dreams, because they feel that they don't deserve them, or that they'll be unable to achieve them.
Because when everyone dreams, but only a few realize their dreams, that makes cowards of us all.
We live in a vale of tears...We can have all the dreams we like, but life is hard, implacable, sad.
But my heart is agitated, It has its dreams, it gets emotional, and it's become passionate over a woman of the desert. It asks things of me, and it keeps me from sleeping many nights, when I'm thinking about her
Dreams are the language of God.
I'm afraid that if my dream is realized, I'll have no reason to go on living.
No heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second's encounter with God and with eternity.

They are not afraid to dream, and to yearn for everything they would like to see happen to them in their lives. But, as time passes, a mysterious force begins to convince them that it will be impossible for them to realize their destiny.
Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dream.
I think that perhaps we always fall in love the very first time we see the man of our dreams, even though, at the time, reason may be telling otherwise, and we may fight against that instinct, hoping against hope that we won't win, until there comes a point when we allow ourselves to be vanquished by our feelings...
