Dream Quotes

This page is a collection of inspirational Dream Quotes.

Too often in life we give up our dreams to please other people. We allow other people's fears and concerns to direct our life. They ask us to live smaller so they can be more comfortable.

Through the years, I've learned that life is waiting for you to define it. You get to decide what it means to live life to the fullest. It can be the boring doldrums or it can be an exciting adventure. Most of us know in our hearts that there is more waiting for us. It will continue to be on hold until you take the first few steps towards it.

Don't spend your days thinking about what could have been. Instead ask, what do I want now? How can I do that? Then make a strong decision to start moving in that direction. You can keep your dreams in your head or you can start building a foundation for them to exist in real life.

If we reach for "greatness" we may fail and get hurt along the way, but the real victory is in the reaching itself. So stretch out and open yourself up to the excitement and joy that is waiting for you.

Life is not a journey separate from ourselves; we actually are the journey. So make the most of it, drink it up, and enjoy each delicious bite.

Allow the inspirational dream quotes on this page to infuse your spirit and ignite your passion to bring your dreams to reality. Enjoy this page of inspirational Dream Quotes.



Twenty years from now
you will be more disappointed
by the things that you didn't do
than by the ones you did do.

Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
