1/24/17 - “Dreamers of the Day”

The video above has a voice over of the quote written on the wall in the lobby at the gym. The T.E. Lawrence quote reads:

“All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.”

In words only capable of being forged by T.E. Lawrence, this is a call to take action. It recognizes and quickly dismisses both the authenticity and tangibility of goals from those who want, but take no action.

Oh, you want something?

Excellent, so does everyone else. What matters most is what you’re willing to do about it. Dream, sure, but dream with eyes wide open in the day and, by God, act on them.
