“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 their dreams with open eyes to make it possible.”
~ T.E. Lawrence
- I was drawn to the possibilities in Elliot’s quote since the first time I heard it. I was one of the “vain dreamers” whose hopes were rarely acted on and my dreams were unfulfilled.
- I learned that as good as life was I had only touched the surface of what I was capable of achieving. During the last thirty-five years I have experienced the thrill of encountering and overcoming my own limitations and leading others through the same process. I learned the critical choices required to be free from my own limitations and give my dreams the chance to become reality. I had become in Lawrence’s words one of the “dangerous ones”.
