On Dreams

But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet, Tread softly because you tread on my dreams. --Yeats
I say:

Dreams are diamonds in the rough. Pursuit of dreams is the richest of living.

Thanks for reading.

Yeats is our hometown poet. We Sligo-people like the poem you quoted 'He wishes for the cloths of heaven'.

We also like 'The Lake Isle of Innisfree', it's our island he's writing about when he says, "...And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow." :)

Thoughtful posting.

Nice one. I was reading this article about how the current financial turmoil may actually be the best time to pursue one's dreams.

What's yours btw? :)
