10 Reasons Why You Should Never Stop Dreaming:
- Nothing is impossible, the word itself says, ‘I’m possible.’ — Audrey Hepburn.
- Quitting, It’s been done to death.
- True story: a lady played the same lottery number every day for seven years. A week after she stopped playing the lottery, her numbers came-up. Okay, I made it up, but it probably happened.
- Winston Churchill said, “Never, Never, Never Give Up!” He’s freakin’ Winston Churchill.
- And Rocky can pound on that slab of raw meat, that means something.
- “You’ve always had the POWER My Dear, You just had to learn it for Yourself.”— Glinda, Wizard of OZ.
- When you have exhausted all the possibilities remember this, you haven’t.— Thomas Edison.
- You are more beautiful than you know and stronger than you realize.
- And what about the saber tooth squirrel, from ICE AGE, that kept going for the nut? Then again, it seemed a lot of work for a little nut. Probably think it out first. If you’re not a cartoon and a lot of rocks fall on your head, you might die.
- Half the fun in life comes from dreaming.

I think the Emily Dickson poem says it best, ―
“Explore thyself therein thy self shall find,
The unexplored continent,
No settlers had thy mind.”
Reflection is good. But don’t over think things. Go out and have fun! Live in the moment. If you’re an artist don’t cut off your ear, or paint your windows black. If you are a writer don’t get trapped in The Bell Jar, which is a beautifully written novel by Sylvia Plath. If you haven’t read it, please read it, unless you are depressed, then don’t. It might push you over the edge. Take time to think about other people too or you’re at risk of becoming a pretentious doughnut hole. The world doesn’t need another one. Did anyone else think doughnut was spelled donut because of Dunkin Donuts? Well, anyway I’m grateful for spell check.
And if you worry a lot about things ― like some wallflowers have the tendency to do, please try to remember:
“You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.”
Desiderata, by Max Ehrmann
