    #14 has a fierce energy.

    #1 is extremely moving. I think I have read everything by Oscar Wilde, but can’t remember that quote. The feeling reminds me of De Profundis.

    Thank you! I frequently need something to remind me of why I am struggling now. I get so involved in day-to-day routines that I forget my dreams – the reason I do what I do.

    Hello Shawn,

    Numbers 4, 8, and 14 resonated with me. These quotes are timely because I have been praying about some of the dreams I’ve had over the past year and a half. Some have come to pass and others are taking longer. They are all incredible and some days I struggle to believe they can really come to true.

    Thank you,

    Lisa

    Number 13 jumped out for me: “13) Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or condition, there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born. -Dale E. Turner”

    I know it is true. The imperatives dreamed in earlier years are like a spiral escalator always ready to lift you higher.
