Do Dreams Come True?

A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.

- Oscar Wilde

Dreams are answers to questions we haven't yet figured out how to ask.



All the things one has forgotten scream for help in dreams.

~Elias Canetti

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

- Thomas E. Lawrence

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.

Ah, great it is to believe the dream as we stand in youth by the starry stream; but a greater thing is to fight life through and say at the end, the dream is true!

Dreams are today's answers to tomorrow's questions.

He felt that his whole life was some kind of dream and he sometimes wondered whose it was and whether they were enjoying it.

Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly.

- Langston Hughes

I don't use drugs, my dreams are frightening enough.

A dream has power to poison sleep.

~Percy Bysshe Shelley, "Mutability"

Recall the old story of the rather refined young man who preferred sex dreams to visiting brothels because he met a much nicer type of girl that way.

~Vivian Mercer

I dream for a living.

- Steven Spielberg

I have had dreams and I have had nightmares, but I have conquered my nightmares because of my dreams.

- Jonas Salk

I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.

- Patrick Henry

I was trying to daydream, but my mind kept wandering.

- Steven Wright

Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.

- Edgar Allan Poe

We are near waking when we dream we are dreaming.
- Novalis
Dreams are free, so free your dreams.
~Astrid Alauda

I hold it true, whate'er befall;

I feel it, when I sorrow most;
'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.

That Love is all there is,Is all we know of Love.

"The ultimate test of a relationship is to disagree but to hold hands. "

The hours I spend with you I look upon as sort of a perfumed garden, a dim twilight, and a fountain singing to it. You and you alone make me feel that I am alive. Other men it is said have seen angels, but I have seen thee and thou art enough.
~George Moore

"I ran up the door, opened the stairs,
said my pajamas and put on my prayers
turned off my bed, tumbled into my light,
and all because he kissed me good-night!"

If You Love...

"Perfect love is rare indeed - for to be a lover will require that you continually have the subtlety of the very wise, the flexibility of the child, the sensitivity of the artist, the understanding of the philosopher, the acceptance of the saint, the tolerance of the scholar and the fortitude of the certain."
Leo Buscaglia

"A relationship is like a rose, How long it lasts, no one knows; Love can erase an awful past, Love can be yours, you'll see at last; To feel that love, it makes you sigh, To have it leave, you'd rather die; You hope you've found that special rose, 'Cause you love and care for the one you chose."
Rob Cella

"Absence is to love what wind is to fire; it extinguishes the small, it enkindles the great."
Comte DeBussy-Rabutin

Thoughts to nourish...

"Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that's creative."

"Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars."
Les Brown

"Accept yourself as you are. Otherwise you will never see opportunity.You will not feel free to move toward it; you will feel you are not deserving."

"Freedom is actually a bigger game than power. Power is about what you can control. Freedom is about what you can unleash."

A Medley of Romantic Expressions

* * * * * * * * *

I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair.
I hate the way you drive my car. I hate it when you stare.
I hate your big dumb combat boots, and the way you read my mind.
I hate you so much it makes me sick; it even makes me rhyme.
I hate it, I hate the way you're always right. I hate it when you lie. I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry.
I hate it that you're not around, and the fact that you didn't call.
But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you. Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.

--Ten Things I Hate About You"

* * * * * * * * *

"Take love, multiply i
t by infinity and take it to the depths of forever.. and you still have only a glimpse of how I feel for you."

- Meet Joe Black

* * * * * * * * *

"Do you ever put your arms out and just spin and spin and spin? Well, that's what love is like. Everything inside of you tells you to stop before you fall, but you just keep going."

- Practical Magic

* * * * * * * * *

That's why they call them crushes. If they were easy, they'd call them something else

-Sixteen Candles

* * * * * * * * *

Remember my sentimental friend, you will be judged not by how much you love, but by how much you are loved.

-Wizard of Oz

* * * * * * * * *

School is still the same.. there's still that one guy that you get up and go to school for in the morning. The one with the mysterious confidence that every girl falls for. Those years of school wouldn't have been the same without him. I wouldn't have been the same without him

- Never Been kissed

* * * * * * * * *

You are what I never knew I always wanted

-Fools Rush In

* * * * * * * * *

When they ask me what I liked best, I'll tell them it was you."

* * * * * * * * *

I wonder how many people never get the one they want, but end up with the one they're supposed to have

Dont say we aren't right for each other, the way i see it is.. we aren't right for anyone else

--the cutting edge

* * * * * * * * *

Sometimes I wish I had never met you. Because then I could go to sleep at night not knowing there was someone like you out there.

-Good Will Hunting

* * * * * * * * *

You know, that moment when you kiss someone and everything around you becomes hazy. And the only thing in focus is you and that person. And you realize that that person is the only person that you're supposed to kiss for the rest of your life. And for one moment you get this gift. And you want to laugh and you want to cry because you feel so lucky that you found it and so scared that it will go away all at the same time.

- Never Been Kissed

* * * * * * * * *

Dory : You mean ... you mean you don't like me?
Marlin : No, of course I like you. It's because I like you I don't want to be with you. It's a complicated emotion.

-Finding Nemo

* * * * * * * * *

I believe there's a place where the restless souls wander, burdened by the weight of their own sadness. They wait for a chance to set the wrong things right. Only then can they be reunited with the ones they love. Sometimes, a crow shows them the way; because sometimes, love is stronger than death.
-City of Angels

* * * * * * * * *

All our young lives we search for someone to love, someone to make us complete. We choose partners and change partners. We dance to a song of heartbreak and hope, all the while wondering if somewhere, somehow, someone perfect is searching for us.

* * * * * * * * *

There Are Millions Of People In This world, But In The end It All Comes Down To One

There is a place You can touch a woman That will drive her crazy.
Her heart.

- Milk Money

* * * * * * * * *

"I love you. And not, not in a friendly way, although I think we're great friends. And not in a misplaced affection, puppy-dog way, although I love you. Very, very simple, very truly. You are the epitome of everything I have ever looked for in another human being. And I know that you think of me as just a friend, and crossing that line is the furthest thing from an option you would ever consider. But I had to say it. I just, I can't take this anymore. I can't stand next to you without wanting to hold you. I can't, I can't look into your eyes without feeling that, that longing you only read about in trashy romance novels. I can't talk to you without wanting to express my love for everything you are.

-Chasing Amy

* * * * * * * * *

...I know that some part of you is hesitating for a moment, and if there is a moment of hesitation, then that means you feel something too. All I ask, please, is that you just, you just not dismiss that - and try to dwell in it for just ten seconds. Alyssa, there isn't another soul on this planet who has ever made me half the person I am when I'm with you, and I would risk this friendship for the chance to take it to the next plateau. Because it is there.. between you and me. You can't deny that. Even if, you know, even if we never talk again after tonight, please know that I'm forever changed because of who you are and what you've meant to me.

-Chasing Amy:

* * * * * * * * *

Samantha: I have to ask you a question. It's a good one so think about it. If two people love each other, but they just can't seem to get it together, when do you get to that point of enough is enough?
Jerry: Never.

-The Mexican

* * * * * * * * *

I always thought that there was this one perfect person for everybody in the world, you know, and when you found that person the rest of the world kind of magically faded away, and, you know, the two of you would just be inside this kind of protective bubble, but there is no bubble, I mean if there is you have to make it, I just think life is more than a series of moments, you know, we can make choices, and we can choose to protect the people we love, and that's what makes us who we are and those are the real memories

Power of Love ....

Captain Corelli's Mandolin:

"When you fall in love, it is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake, and then it subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots are become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part."

Shakespeare In Love :

* "I will have poetry in my life. And adventure. And love. Love above all. No...not the artful postures of love, not playful and poetical games of love for the amusement of an evening. but love that...overthrows life. Unbiddable, ungovernable, like a riot in the heart, and nothing to be done, come ruin or rapture."

You've Got Mail:

* "I like to start my notes to you as if we're already in the middle of a conversation. I pretend that we're the oldest and dearest friends- as opposed to what we actually are- people who don't know each other's names and met in a chat room where we both claimed we'd never been before. What will NY152 say today, I wonder. I turn on my computer, I wait impatiently as it boots up. I go online, and my breath catches in my chest until I hear three little words: You've got mail. I hear nothing, not even a sound on the streets of New York, just the beat of my own heart. I have mail. From you."

Wuthering Heights:

"If he loved you with all the power of his soul for a whole lifetime, he couldn't love you as much as I do in a single day."

"I want to crawl to her feet, whimper to be forgiven, for loving her, for needing her more than my own life, for belonging to her more than my own soul."

"...he's more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same."

"If you ever looked at me once with what I know is in you, I would be your slave."

"I cannot live without my life! I cannot die without my soul!"

A Beautiful Mind :

"It's only in the mysterious equations of love that any logical reasons can be found. I am only here tonight because of you. You are all I am. You are all my reasons."

"Perhaps it is good to have a beautiful mind, but an even greater gift is to discover a beautiful heart."

Big Fish

"Sometimes, the only way to catch an uncatchable woman is to offer her a wedding ring."


"You can be anywhere when your life begins. You meet the right person and anything is possible."

The Phantom of The Opera:

"Past the point of no return- no going back now. Our passion play has now at last begun. Past all thought of right or wrong. One final question. How long should we two wait, before we're one? When will the blood begin to race? The sleeping bud burst into bloom? When will the flames at last consume us?"

Shall We Dance:

"The rumba is the vertical expression of a horizontal wish. You have to hold her like the skin on the thigh is your reason for living. Let her go, like your heart's being ripped from your chest. Throw her back, like you're going to have your way with her, right here on the dance floor. And then finish like she's ruined you for life."
