Bram Stoker
“I am longing to be with you, and by the sea, where we can talk together freely and build our castles in the air.”
Bram Stoker, Dracula

Brandon Sanderson
“Expectations were like fine pottery. The harder you held them, the more likely they were to crack.”
Brandon Sanderson, The Way of Kings

Michael J. Sullivan
“Sometimes the price of dreams is achieving them.”
Michael J. Sullivan, Percepliquis

Virginia Woolf
“He who robs us of our dreams robs us of our life.”
Virginia Woolf, Orlando

Anthon St. Maarten
“Never surrender your hopes and dreams to the fateful limitations others have placed on their own lives. The vision of your true destiny does not reside within the blinkered outlook of the naysayers and the doom prophets. Judge not by their words, but accept advice based on the evidence of actual results. Do not be surprised should you find a complete absence of anything mystical or miraculous in the manifested reality of those who are so eager to advise you. Friends and family who suffer the lack of abundance, joy, love, fulfillment and prosperity in their own lives really have no business imposing their self-limiting beliefs on your reality experience.”
Anthon St. Maarten

“If you could have one wish, what would it be? We all have hopes and dreams that we do almost anything to make real. And if we get lucky, and our wish is granted, maybe that's what we call happiness.”
I Am An Idiot Spammer

Charlotte Brontë
“My hopes were all dead --- struck with a subtle doom, such as, in one night, fell on all the first-born in the land of Egypt. I looked on my cherished wishes, yesterday so blooming and glowing; they lay stark, chill, livid corpses that could never revive. I looked at my love: that feeling which had been my master's --- which he had created; it shivered in my heart, like a suffering child in a cold cradle; sickness and anguish had seized it; it could not seek Mr Rochester's arms --- it could not derive warmth from his breast. Oh, never more could it turn to him; for faith was blighted -- confidence destroyed!”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Cecelia Ahern
“People forget they have options. And they forget that those things don't really matter. They should concentrate on what they have and not what they don't have. And by the way, wishing and dreaming doesn't mean concentrating on what you don't have, it's positive thinking that encourages hoping and believing, not whinging and moaning.”
Cecelia Ahern, If You Could See Me Now

Rebecca Wells
“Some women pray for their daughters to marry good husbands. I pray that my girls will find girlfriends half as loyal and true as the Ya-Yas.”
Rebecca Wells, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood

Susan  Fletcher
“I've heard fate talked of. It's not a word I use. I think we make our own choices. I think how we live our lives is our own doing, and we cannot fully hope on dreams and stars. But dreams and stars can guide us, perhaps. And the heart's voice is a strong one. Always is.

Your heart's voice is your true voice. It is easy to ignore it, for sometimes it says what we'd rather it did not - and it is so hard to risk the things we have. But what life are we living, if we don't live by our hearts? Not a true one. And the person living it is not the true you.”
Susan Fletcher, Corrag

Michael Connelly
“Los Angeles was the kind of place where everybody was from somewhere else and nobody really droppped anchor. It was a transient place. People drawn by the dream, people running from the nightmare. Twelve million people and all of them ready to make a break for it if necessary. Figuratively, literally, metaphorically -- any way you want to look at it -- everbody in L.A. keeps a bag packed. Just in case.”
Michael Connelly, The Brass Verdict

Steve Maraboli
“Don't nourish your fears more than you nourish your hopes.”
Steve Maraboli

“All of us,' he said, 'have hopes of being poet, artist, discoverer, philospoher, scientist; of possessing the attributes of all these simultaneously. Few are permitted to achieve any of them in daily life. But in travel we attain them all. Then we have our day of glory, when all our dreams come true, when we can be anything we like, as long as we like, and, when we are tired of it, pull up stakes and move on. Travel -- the solitude of the mountains, the emptiness of the desert, the delicacy of the minaret; eternal change, limitless contrast, unending variety.' (Eric Lang)”
Robert Edison Fulton Jr., One Man Caravan

Mary Lydon Simonsen
“‎There is nothing sweeter than finding the right person to love and cherish and to share your hopes and dreams with.”
Mary Lydon Simonsen, The Perfect Bride for Mr. Darcy

Charles Darwin
“We are not here concerned with hopes or fears, only with truth as far as our reason permits us to discover it.”
Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man

Mary Balogh
“Did she ever feel nostalgia for any of her girlhood dreams? But life was made up of a succession of dreams, some few to be realized, most to be set aside as time went on, one or two to persist for a lifetime. It was knowing when to abandon a dream, perhaps, that mattered and distinguished the successful people in life from the sad, embittered persons who never moved on from the first of life's great disappointments. Or from the airy dreamers who never really lived life at all.”
Mary Balogh, Simply Perfect

“Have faith little one ‘til your hopes and your wishes come true. You must try to be brave.”
The Rescuers

Shannon L. Alder
“Life has a way of taking you past your wants and hopes. Instead, it drops you in front of what you need.”
Shannon L. Alder

Christopher Hitchens
“Beware what you wish for, unless you have the grace to hope that your luck can be shared.”
Christopher Hitchens, Love, Poverty, and War: Journeys and Essays

William James
“إن بيننا وبين الله رابطة لا تنفصم، فإذا نحن أخضعنا أنفسنا لإشرافه - سبحانه وتعالى - تحققت أمنياتنا وآمالنا كلها.”
William James

Richelle E. Goodrich
“You can capture this body of mine, take away my freedom and enslave me.
You may even have the power to capture my soul and sentence me to the realm of eternal darkness.
But my dreams you cannot touch. They are my will―the very essence of who I am.
In them I laugh.
In them I cry.
In them I love.
And in them…….I live.
My dreams are untouchable and unceasing.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Eena, The Dawn and Rescue

Ralph Ellison
“But what a feeling can come over a man just from seeing the things he believes in and hopes for symbolized in the concrete form of a man. In something that gives a focus to all the other things he knows to be real. Something that makes unseen things manifest and allows him to come to his hopes and dreams through his outer eye and through the touch and feel of his natural hand.”
Ralph Ellison, Juneteenth

H. Rider Haggard
“Strange are the pictures of the future that mankind can thus draw with this brush of faith and these many-coloured pigments of the imagination! Strange, too, that no one of them tallies with another!”
H. Rider Haggard, She

Harley King
“If I woke up one morning and realized that all I ever was going to be was a business man, I'd probably die. All my dreams would be shattered. Early in life I had many dreams. I dreamed of being a great basketball star. I dreamed of being a preacher. I dreamed of saving the world from war and racism. And I dreamed of being a great poet. Today, I dream only of writing.”
Harley King, Mother, Don't Lock Me In That Closet!

Hope Mirrlees
“Stop a minute, Ambrose!" interrupted Master Nathaniel. "I've got a sudden silly whim that we should take an oath I must have read when I was a youngster in some old book... the words have suddenly come back to me. They go like this: We (and then we say our own names), Nathaniel Chanticleer and Ambrose Honeysuckle, swear by the Living and the Dead, by the Past and the Future, by Memories and Hopes, that if a Vision comes begging at our door we will take it in and warm it at our hearth, and that we will not be wiser than the foolish nor more cunning than the simple, and that we will remember that he who rides the Wind needs must go where his Steed carries him.
Hope Mirrlees, Lud-in-the-Mist

Saul Williams
“I presented my feminine side with flowers. She cut
the stems and placed them gently down my throat.
And these tu lips might soon eclipse your brightest
hopes.”
Saul Williams, The Dead Emcee Scrolls: The Lost Teachings of Hip-Hop

Drea Damara
“Books keep and reciprocate our secrets, dreams, regrets, and hopes better than any friend in the world.”
Drea Damara, The Weeping Books Of Blinney Lane

Laini Taylor
“Having hope was like dangling himself over a chasm and putting the rope in her hands. She could annihilate him if she wanted to.”
Laini Taylor, Dreams of Gods & Monsters
