Fragile

Un rêve intact est une merveille fragile.
A dream intact is a fragile marvel.

fragile but strong at same time. Dreams became reality (often). :)

I agree, but a dream intact, untouched by reality in a way, is fragile, easy to break. I would say that a dream without a plan is just a dream, there is not much chance that he will become reality. This quote in a way continues our chat from the previous post, about how we must pay attention to our dreams.
But on the other hand, maybe there is no such thing as an impossible dream, and maybe if we dream freely, miracles will happen...

I will go for dreaming freely. But I do understand what you mean and there is an enormous beauty in such a dream, 'untouched by reality'.

I think you're right. There's a quote by Arthur C. Clarke: "The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible."
To dream into the impossible, and maybe reality will surprise us.

I like your quotes but your words would make a great quote-book. I am sure a lot of people share my interest for your words, they truly capture my attention. This said, it would be nice to see your words as comments to the quotes you pick. Just a thought... Btw, I think I'll quote you again :)

Hey thanks, i am happy you like my words, i really enjoy the conversations we have here and my words are inspired by them.
I've decided to post my opinions through discussion, by commenting comments because i don't want to suggest any direction for a discussion. I wish to keep the approach to the quote opened and fresh for your comments, so i leave the quote untouched :)
