We were all dreamers once. Some of us still are. But in the journey from imagination to adulthood, too many of us were told we had to leave our wide eyes behind. We were told that dreamers didn’t win in this world; that fantasies were the foundations of failure. So we turned our backs too soon, leaving our inner dreamers forgotten somewhere deep within us, buried beneath the debris of doubts and demands that we amassed along our path.

It’s time for you to recover your dreams and reignite your passion. And in the long run, it will lift you to heights you could scarcely imagine.
Here are our Top 10 Quotes to Reignite the Dreamer in You.
