A dream doesn't become reality through magic;
it takes sweat, determination and hard work.
- Colin Powell

Success is 10 percent inspiration and 90 percent perspiration.
- Thomas A. Edison

If you dream of something worth doing
and then simply go to work on it
and don't think anything of personalities,
or emotional conflicts, or of money,
or of family distractions;

- Edwin Land

Vision without action is merely a dream.
Action without vision just passes the time.
Vision with action can change the world.
- Joel A. Barker

To lead a great life:
Dream, Take Action, Repeat.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Some people dream of success
while others wake up and work hard at it.
