“All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find 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, Seven Pillars of Wisdom: A Triumph

“I loved you, so I drew these tides of men into my hands/and wrote my will across the sky in stars”
T.E. Lawrence, Seven Pillars of Wisdom: A Triumph

“Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds awake to find that all was vanity; but the dreamers by day are dangerous men, for they may act out their dreams with open eyes to make them possible.”
T.E. Lawrence
