“Dream no small dreams for they have no power to move the hearts of men.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
On the whole, we make an effort to live and work together in harmony. Most of us avoid conflict, especially with those with whom we are closely associated. We are conditioned to conduct ourselves within an established range of behaviours. Even so, we are taught to “dream big.” Sometimes these dreams may diverge with those in our well-meaning communities.
Dreams are never easy, yet they belong to us. Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley once said, “My dreams were all my own; I accounted for them to nobody; they were my refuge when annoyed – my dearest pleasure when free.”
“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”
