Dreams are Future Realities

“You see things; and you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were; and I say, “Why not?””

**George Bernard Shaw

What’s Your Motto?

As some of you know, I am a professor of Business and Professional Ethics, so we’ve talked a lot about morality and being a good person.  This morning, I asked my classes to write down their motto – the phrase that they want to live by.  Since I was asking it of them, I decided to write my own as well.  Here Goes!

“Four Seasons” by Spudzalot


“Remember Olivia, that in all things you value wisdom, virtue, and graciousness.  In all actions or words, uphold the proper manners and practice self-control.  Never speak without thinking, never act without consideration.  Put others first (and all equally), but never forget your own importance. Listen to the wisdom of others, but don’t give up when you know your heart and faith is true. Be Humble, but Confident; Cautious, but Brave;  Gentle, but Strong; Forgiving, but Unwavering. And most importantly, work hard, but remember the purpose of life is happiness.  Be practical, but follow your dreams. When hardships come, or questions arise, believe in the power of goodness and always look for the beauty.  Life is meant to be enjoyed, so enjoy it!

Keep Dreaming!

“It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.” 

**Paulo Coelho

So Are You Full of Fluff

“Last night I dreamed I ate a ten-pound marshmallow, and when I woke up the pillow was gone.”

**Tommy Cooper

Dreams beyond Dreams

“My dreams have become puny with the reality my life has become.”
**Imelda Marcos

Room To Grow in Imagination

“The small hopes and plans and pleasures of children should be tenderly respected by grown-up people, and never rudely thwarted or ridiculed.”  

**Louisa May Alcott

Dreaming by Day

“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.”

–T. E. Lawrence

Dreaming the Future

“Dream as if you’ll live forever, live as if you’ll die today.”

–James Dean


Never Let Go

“Hold fast to your dreams, for without them life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly.”

–Langston Hughes
