(sample quotations from the book)

Don't worry about people stealing your ideas. If your ideas are any good, you'll have to ram them down people's throats. — Howard Aiken

Anyone who doesn't believe in miracles is not a realist. — David Ben-Gurion, Israeli leader

Dreams come a size too big so that we can grow into them. — Josie Bisset

To fulfill a dream, to be allowed to sweat over lonely labor, to be given the chance to create, is the meat and potatoes of life. The money is the gravy. As everyone else, I love to dunk my crust in it. But alone, it is not a diet designed to keep body and soul together. — Bette Davis, actress, The Lonely Life

We reward those who can stir our emotions to the greatest heights—actors, athletes and rock musicians make millions because they know how to turn on our passion. — Barbara DeAngelis, author, Passion

Dreaming permits each and every one of us to be quietly and safely insane every night of our lives. — William Dement, scientist

If you believe in your heart that you are right, you must fight with all your might to do it your way. Only dead fish swim with the stream all the time. — Linda Ellerbee, TV journalist

The great moments, when the world cheers, are not the moments that count. The ones that count are when it’s just you, and people have stopped believing in you. Those are the moments that define you. — Bob Greene, columnist

Don't believe there's plenty of time for everything. There isn't. — Lillian Hellman, playwright

Dream of a world where we measure character by how much we share and care, not by how much we take and consume. — Jesse Jackson, civil rights leader

Whenever I’m taking time off, all I’m thinking about is working. I feel like right now I have a one-in-a-million chance. There are so many great actors who are unemployed, and seeing them makes you wonder why everything’s happening for you. It’s luck. I’m just lucky. But to have this strange breakout, it’s just a dream. It really is. — Scarlett Johansson, actress

I believe in looking reality straight in the eye and denying it. — Garrison Keillor, radio humorist

I didn’t get here by dreaming about it or thinking about it—I got here by doing it. — Esteé Lauder, fashion designer

If being an egomaniac means that I believe in what I do and in my art or my music, then in that respect you can call me that. I believe in what I do, and I'll say it. — John Lennon, rock singer

Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful. — Sophia Loren, actress

You have talent and intelligence and a chance. I think you should take those goals and expand them. Think of the most you could do with your lives. Make what you do matter. Above all, dream big. — Catherine Marshall, author
