“The Dreamers are the saviours of the world. As the visible world is sustained by the invisible, so men, through all their trials and sins and sordid vocation, are nourished by the beautiful visions of their solitary dreamers. Humanity cannot forget it’s dreamers; it cannot let their lives fade and die; it lives in them; it knows as they realities which it shall one day see and know.
Composer, sculptor, painter, poet, prophet, sage, these are the makers of the after-world, the architects of heaven. The world is beautiful because they have lived; without them, labouring humanity would parish.”
From James Allen’s 1902 essay, As A Man Thinketh.
Today the dreamers, the doers, the artists, are more visible than ever. It’s because of the work that was done before us by those who paved the way. Let’s keep it that way.
