Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Happy the man who early learns the wide chasm that lies between his wishes and his powers.
George Ella Lyons
Wishes are free.
You must pay the price if you wish to secure the blessing.
If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never.
Be as you wish to seem.
You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it come true. You may have to work for it, however.
Some people develop a wish bone where their back bone should be.
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
We are told never to cross a bridge until we come to it, but this world is owned by men who have 'crossed bridges' in their imagination far ahead of the crowd.
