It is the same in the vital things of mind and life.
The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn, the bird waits in the egg, and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities.
He who would accomplish little must sacrifice little; he who would accomplish much must sacrifice much
