„Don't ask the world to change — you change first.“

—  Anthony de Mello Indian writer 1931 - 1987

Context: Don't ask the world to change — you change first. Then you'll get a good enough look at the world so that you'll be able to change whatever you think ought to be changed. Take the obstruction out of your own eye. If you don't you have lost the right to change anyone or anything. Till you are aware of yourself, you have no right to interfere with anyone else or with the world.

„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.
