  View quote | Alcott, Louisa May quotes

Why should you be content with so little? Why shouldn't you reach out for something big?
  View quote | Allen, Charles L. quotes

No vision and you perish; No Ideal, and you're lost; Your heart must ever cherish Some faith at any cost. Some hope, some dream to cling to, Some rainbow in the sky, Some melody to sing to, Some service that is high.
  View quote | Autermont, Harriet Du quotes

Your successful past will block your visions of the future.
  View quote | Barker, Joel A. quotes

Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.
  View quote | Barker, Joel A. quotes

Perhaps our eyes are merely a blank film which is taken from us after our deaths to be developed elsewhere and screened as our life story in some infernal cinema or dispatched as microfilm into the sidereal void.
  View quote | Baudrillard, Jean quotes

Where there is no vision, the people perish. [Proverbs 29:18]

You don't need an explanation for everything, Recognize that there are such things as miracles -- events for which there are no ready explanations. Later knowledge may explain those events quite easily.
  View quote | Browne, Harry quotes

Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men's blood and probably themselves will not be realized. Make big plans. Aim high in hope and work. Remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will not die.
  View quote | Burnham, Daniel H. quotes

The road winds up the hill to meet the height; Beyond the locust hedge it curves from sight -- And yet no man would foolishly contend. That where he sees it not, it makes an end.
  View quote | Carleton, Emma quotes

No man sees far, most see no farther than their noses.
  View quote | Carlyle, Thomas quotes

Aim for the highest.
  View quote | Carnegie, Andrew quotes

Objects close to the eye shut out much larger objects on the horizon; and splendors born only of the earth eclipse the stars. So it is with people who sometimes cover up the entire disc of eternity with a dollar, and so quench transcendent glories with a little shining dust.
  View quote | Chapin, Edwin Hubbel quotes

The world values the seer above all men, and has always done so. Nay, it values all men in proportion as they partake of the character of seers. The Elgin Marbles and a decision of John Marshall are valued for the same reason. What we feel in them is a painstaking submission to facts beyond the author's control, and to ideas imposed upon him by his vision. So with Beethoven's Symphonies, with Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations -- with any conceivable output of the human mind of which you approve. You love them because you say, These things were not made, they were seen.
  View quote | Chapman, John Jay quotes

The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see.
  View quote | Churchill, Winston quotes

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
  View quote | Clarke, Arthur C. quotes

Vision -- It reaches beyond the thing that is, into the conception of what can be. Imagination gives you the picture. Vision gives you the impulse to make the picture your own.
  View quote | Collier, Robert quotes

Faith is the confidence, the assurance, the enforcing truth, the knowing...
  View quote | Collier, Robert quotes

We do not need more intellectual power, we need more spiritual power. We do not need more of the things that are seen, we need more of the things that are unseen.
  View quote | Coolidge, Calvin quotes

It's easy to say no! when there's a deeper yes! burning inside.
  View quote | Covey, Stephen R. quotes

Nothing is so easy to fake as the inner vision.
  View quote | Davies, Robertson quotes

What every man needs, regardless of his job or the kind of work he is doing, is a vision of what his place is and may be. He needs an objective and a purpose. He needs a feeling and a belief that he has some worthwhile thing to do. What this is no one can tell him. It must be his own creation. Its success will be measured by the nature of his vision, what he has done to equip himself, and how well he has performed along the line of its development.
  View quote | Dodge, Joseph M. quotes

Hitch your wagon to a star. Let us not fag in paltry works which serve our pot and bag alone.

I have nothing new to teach the world. Truth and Non-violence are as old as the hills. All I have done is to try experiments in both on as vast a scale as I could.
  View quote | Gandhi, Mahatma quotes

You have to see the pattern, understand the order and experience the vision.
  View quote | Gerber, Michael E. quotes

We need to give ourselves permission to act out our dreams and visions, not look for more sensations, more phenomena, but live our strongest dreams -- even if it takes a lifetime.
  View quote | Hamilton, Vijali quotes

It is never safe to look into the future with eyes of fear.
  View quote | Harriman, Edward H. quotes

Cherish you visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul; the blue prints of your ultimate achievements.
  View quote | Hill, Napoleon quotes

The riders in a race do not stop when they reach the goal. There is a little finishing canter before coming to a standstill. There is time to hear the kind voices of friends and say to oneself, The work is done.
  View quote | Holmes Jr., Oliver Wendell quotes

The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.
  View quote | Holmes, Oliver Wendell quotes

The business of a seer is to see; and if he involves himself in the kind of God-eclipsing activities which make seeing impossible, he betrays the trust which his fellows have tacitly placed in him.
  View quote | Huxley, Aldous quotes

So shine on through these days we have to fill.
  View quote | John, Elton quotes

I am going to build the kind of nation that President Roosevelt hoped for, President Truman worked for, and President Kennedy died for.
  View quote | Johnson, Lyndon B. quotes

Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens.
  View quote | Jung, Carl quotes

Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars.

One eye sees, the other feels.
  View quote | Klee, Paul quotes

If you would hit the mark, you must aim a little above it; Every arrow that flies feels the attraction of earth.
  View quote | Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth quotes

The kingdom of God could be realized simply by daring to live differently from the normal conventions. The kingdom of God in the teachings of Jesus was not an apocalyptic or heavenly projection of otherworldly desire. It was driven by a desire to think that there must be a better way to live together than the present state of affairs. And it called for a change of behavior in the present on the part of individuals invested in the vision.
  View quote | Mack, Burton L. quotes

Only eyes washed by tears can see clearly.
  View quote | Mann, Louis L. quotes

The size of your accomplishments, the quality of your achievement, will depend very largely on how big a man you see in yourself, what sort of image you get of your possible self, yourself at your best.
  View quote | Marden, Orison Swett quotes

The hand cannot reach higher than does the heart.
  View quote | Marden, Orison Swett quotes

We lift ourselves by our thought. We climb upon our vision of ourselves. If you want to enlarge your life, you must first enlarge your thought of it and of yourself. Hold the ideal of yourself as you long to be, always everywhere.
  View quote | Marden, Orison Swett quotes

We cannot rise higher than our thought of ourselves.
  View quote | Marden, Orison Swett quotes

Nine-tenths of our sickness can be prevented by right thinking plus right hygiene -- nine-tenths of it!
  View quote | Miller, Henry quotes

There are lone figures armed only with ideas, sometimes with just one idea, who blast away whole epochs in which we are enwrapped like mummies. Some are powerful enough to resurrect the dead. Some steal on us unawares and put a spell over us which it takes centuries to throw off. Some put a curse on us, for our stupidity and inertia, and then it seems as if God himself were unable to lift it.
  View quote | Miller, Henry quotes

Build it and they will come!
  View quote | Movie, Fields Of Dreams quotes

I know my fate. One day there will be associated with my name the recollection of something frightful -- of a crisis like no other before on earth, of the profoundest collision of conscience, of a decision evoked against everything that until then had been believed in, demanded, sanctified. I am not a man I am dynamite.
  View quote | Nietzsche, Friedrich quotes
