25 Motivational Quotes about the Importance of Dreams

Dreams set foundation for your life. You first dream about what you want to achieve in your life. Then you work on them to make it come true.

Have you ever imagined if we were not able to imagine? Imagination, thinking and dreaming creates unlimited dimensions for our life. Dreams define purpose and goals for human being. These dreams are not what you see while sleeping but what you think all day long. They tell you what you want to achieve and where you want to see yourself in your life.

Sometimes we have dreams but we are not confident to achieve them. Sometimes we fear what if we fail. Dreams would not work if we do not. It may take time but you have to keep going. As Walt Disney said, “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” Take a step every day even if it is a little step toward your dreams.

Do you have a vision for your life? What are your dreams that wake you up every day? If you do not have, set one today. After all, Life without purpose and dream is not worth living. Let us see some great dream quotes to motivate you to dreaming in your life.

It does this not because it is evil, but so that we can, in addition to realizing our dreams master the lessons we have learned as we have moved toward that dream. That’s the point at which most people give up…. [At this point] Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity”

Paulo Coelho
