„But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams beneath your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.“

—  W.B. Yeats Irish poet and playwright 1865 - 1939

He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven http://poetry.poetryx.com/poems/1499/
Variant: I have spread my dreams under your feet.
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
Source: The Wind Among the Reeds (1899)
Context: Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with the golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams beneath your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

„Follow your heart, follow your dreams. If writing is your passion, put everything you have into it.“

—  J.M. DeMatteis comics illustrator 1953

Context: Follow your heart, follow your dreams. If writing is your passion, put everything you have into it. Let that passion, that joy, lead you. In the end it might not lead you to exactly the place you thought you were heading... but it will absolutely lead you someplace wonderful. And don’t let the Nay-Sayers, the Practical People, stop you or wear you down. Follow your dreams... and you can’t go wrong.

„Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall you become. Your Vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your Ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil.“

—  James Allen British philosophical writer 1864 - 1912

As A Man Thinketh (1902), Visions and Ideals
Context: To desire is to obtain; to aspire is to, achieve. Shall man's basest desires receive the fullest measure of gratification, and his purest aspirations starve for lack of sustenance? Such is not the Law: such a condition of things can never obtain: "ask and receive."
Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall you become. Your Vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your Ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil.

„Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me.“

—  Cass Elliot American singer 1941 - 1974

"Dream a Little Dream of Me" (1931), was one of Cass Elliot's biggest hits but the lyrics by Gus Kahn were written many years before her definitive rendition; the music by Fabian Andre & Wilbur Schwandt. More information on how she came to record it is provided at NPR: "Dream a Little Dream of Me" ranked as one of the 100 most important American musical works of the 20th century http://www.npr.org/programs/specials/vote/100list.html#D.

„Nothing is as real as a dream. The world can change around you, but your dream will not.“

—  Tom Clancy American author 1947 - 2013

As quoted in Writers (1995) Published by A. Deutsch
1990s
Context: Nothing is as real as a dream. The world can change around you, but your dream will not. Your life may change, but your dream doesn't have to. Responsibilities need not erase it. Duties need not obscure it. Your spouse and children need not get in its way, because the dream is within you. No one can take your dream away.
