The dream was always running ahead of me. To catch up, to live for a moment in unison with it, that was the miracle.

You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.

The best love affairs are those we never had.

Like all dreamers I confuse disenchantment with truth.

Have you noticed ... there is never any third act in a nightmare? They bring you to a climax of terror and then leave you there. They are the work of poor dramatists.

Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.

Dreams are illustrations... from the book your soul is writing about you.

There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other.

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. - C.S. Lewis

I'll do my dreaming with my eyes wide open, and I'll do my looking back with my eyes closed.

You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.

Life is never easy for those who dream.

When your dreams turn to dust, vacuum.

Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.

The description is not the described; I can describe the mountain, but the description is not the mountain, and if you are caught up in the description, as most people are, then you will never see the mountain.

Mountains cannot be surmounted except by winding paths.

You go up there and it's just this amazing place on top of a mountain.

Never measure the height of a mountain until you have reached the top. Then you will see how low it was.

Even God cannot make two mountains without a valley in between.

In the mountains, the shortest way is from peak to peak: but for that you must have long legs.

It isn't the mountain ahead that wears you out; it's the grain of sand in your shoe.

On the mountains of truth you can never climb in vain: either you will reach a point higher up today, or you will be training your powers so that you will be able to climb higher tomorrow.

You can never conquer the mountain. You can only conquer yourself.

Men go back to the mountains, as they go back to sailing ships at sea, because in the mountains and on the sea they must face up.

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.”

The mountains are calling and I must go.

God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks to us in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: It is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world.

Every evening I turn my worries over to God. He's going to be up all night anyway.

If there were no God, it would have been necessary to invent him.

After God created the world, He made man and woman. Then, to keep the whole thing from collapsing, He invented humor.

God has editing rights over our prayers. He will... edit them, correct them, bring them in line with His will and then hand them back to us to be resubmitted.

God thinks within geniuses, dreams within poets, and sleeps within the rest of us.

There are no accidents. God's just trying to remain anonymous.

One reason God created time was so that there would be a place to bury the failures of the past.

Even the upper end of the river

believes in the ocean.

I pray to be like the ocean, with soft currents, maybe waves at times. More and more, I want the consistency rather than the highs and the lows. - Drew Barrymore

My eyes are an ocean in which my dreams are reflected.

No one would ever have crossed the ocean if he could have gotten off the ship in a storm.

May your joys be as deep as the ocean, your sorrows as light as its foam.

We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

Eternity begins and ends with the ocean's tides.

As the ocean is never full of water, so is the heart never full of love.

It is of great use to the sailor to know the length of his line, though he cannot with it fathom all the depths of the ocean. - John Locke

Ocean racing is like standing under a cold shower tearing up £5 notes.
