Book of Quotes, Number Seven

"(I)f one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours." -- Henry David Thoreau

This is the most inspirational sentence I have ever read. It is also, I believe, the very essence of the American dream. I fear that too many of us have lost sight of it. I know I did.
