What are some good, famous quotes about following your dreams?

.I know this is the B&A section, but I feel like here people seem to help more. I have to write a speech for my Speech Class about my dreams, and my teacher said that we need to include at least two quotes about the topic. So far, I have: "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." --Eleanor Roosevelt What are some other really good ones? And who quoted them? Thank you.

  2. Never laugh at anyone's dreams, people who don't have dreams don't have much - Unknown Shoot for the moon, if you miss you will still land among the stars - Les Brown Yes, I know the last one is astronomically incorrect, but it's a lovely quote all the same.

But I dream things that never were; and I say, 'Why not?'”- George Bernard Shaw -“Dreams are like stars...you may never touch them, but if you follow them they will lead you to your destiny.” - “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.” - Douglas H Everett -The best thing about dreams is that fleeting moment, when you are between asleep and awake, when you don't know the difference between reality and fantasy, when for just that one moment you feel with your entire soul that the dream is reality, and it really happened.”
  4. "Dreams are the bright creatures of poem and legend, who sport on earth in the night season, and melt away in the first beam of the sun, which lights grim care and stern reality on their daily pilgrimage through the world." - Charles Dickens, Nicholas Nickleby "Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly." Langston Hughes "Yes, I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can find his way by moonlight, and see the dawn before the rest of the world."
