This post is prompted by a comment exchange with a blogger whose writing I like, but whose blog I rarely show up to, as I’m subscribed to her posts by email – that should redeem me, right? —> anneschilde.wordpress.com
Anyway, in answer to a question of mine, she expressed that she’s planning to publish her book as an e-book, but dreams about having it published traditionally. I headed out to find some quotes on ‘dreaming’, and truly, when do you take out the time to thank God and/or Tim Berners-Lee for the inter-webs? I came up with lots, and these left me feeling pretty inspired – and probably more accident prone.
“I dream. Sometimes I think that’s the only right thing to do.”
― Haruki Murakami, Sputnik Sweetheart
“All (wo)men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.”
― T.E. Lawrence, Seven Pillars of Wisdom: A Triumph
“Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all is a form of planning.”
― Gloria Steinem
“Promise me you’ll never stop dreaming.”
― Melina Marchetta, Looking for Alibrandi
It’s probably pretty obvious by now that I live with my head in the clouds. I’m a dreamer. It’s the only way to be.
