Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy sh@% we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war… our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.

Boldness has genius, magic and poser in it.
Begin it now.

- Goethe


We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter's evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they
bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.

- Woodrow Wilson


Obviously, despite hard work and heroic efforts, many dreams don't come true. But if we don't dare to dream and then throw muscle, heart, and soul into making the dream come true, then WoW Projects--and all of the emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and financial riches that they bring--will surely NOT be our lot in life!

- Tom Peters, The Project 50 (Reinventing Work)


‘The rest is up to you' I tell my clients ... Every few years they come back, so I have snapshots in my head of how they've changed over the years. The ones who've changed the most finally bought that boat, moved to that island. Those who haven't changed, I suppose they take comfort in knowing what course their lives are on. They like to believe they know what lies ahead.

- Shall We Dance? (movie quote)


The question for each man to settle is not what he would do if he had means, time, influence and educational advantages; the question is what he will do with the things he has. The moment a young man ceases to dream or to bemoan his lack of opportunities and resolutely looks his conditions in the face, and resolves to change them, he lays the corner-stone of a solid and honorable success.

- Hamilton Wright Mabie

Follow every rainbow till you find your dream."

People can't live with change if there's not a changeless core inside them. The key to the ability to change is a changeless sense of who you are, what you are about and what you value.

+ Ray, are you actually thinking of doing this?
~ No. I mean I can't think of 1 good reason why I should.

+ What's your father go to do with all of this?
~ I never forgave him for getting old. By the time he was as old as I am now, he was ancient. He must have had dreams. He never did anything about them. For all I know, he may have even heard voices too. But he certainly didn't listen to them. The man never did one spontaneous thing in all the years I knew him. Annie, I am afraid of that happening to me. And something tells me this may be my last chance to do something about it. I want to build that field. Do you think I am crazy?
~ Yes ... But I also think, if you really feel you should do this ... then you should do it.

- Field of Dreams (movie quote)

To call myself beloved, to feel myself beloved on the earth.
