Dangerous Dreamers

All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day 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”, writes T. E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) in the Introductory Chapter of his book “Seven Pillars of Wisdom”.

And how right he is.

Those of us who dream our dream during the day with open eyes are indeed dangerous in the eyes of those in power for our dreams often are the dreams of freedom for our People.

Let us therefore dream our dreams by day and act upon them and ignore the dreams of the night.
