If you rescue me from my pipe dreams, I'll stop smoking fantasies. ~ Munia Khan
Pipe Dream quotes by Munia Khan
But it was all a pipe dream. As well try to stop an avalanche as to stop the moving frontier. American immigrants and emigrants wanted their share of land - free land - a farm in the family - the dream of European peasants for hundreds of years - the New World's great gift to the old. Moving west with the tide were the hucksters, the lawyers, merchants, and other men on the make looking for the main chance, men who could manufacture a land warrant in the wink of an eye. This ~ Stephen E. Ambrose
Pipe Dream quotes by Stephen E. Ambrose
I'm not a pipe dream. I'm not going anywhere. ~ Nora Sakavic
Pipe Dream quotes by Nora Sakavic
There were times when I would suddenly realize making music is a crazy pipe dream. I would see bands that did super well in South Africa still struggling to survive, or even people on the international level who are doing well but financially can't really support themselves. ~ St. Lucia
Pipe Dream quotes by St. Lucia
It's so odd because I don't even know if I'm cut out for it, but being a movie star guy, I sort of end up gravitating toward the Coen brothers. That's one of the reasons my wife and I moved to L.A.: that however much of a pipe dream that would be, I moved to L.A. because I'd love to work with the Coen brothers. ~ Timothy Simons
Pipe Dream quotes by Timothy Simons
The praying life is the abiding life. Many Christians hit a wall when they connect abiding with asking. They freeze, thinking, If I were abiding, then I would get my prayers answered. Abiding feels elusive, like a spiritual pipe dream. Abiding is anything but disconnected from life. It is the way life should be done, in partnership with God. ~ Paul E. Miller
Pipe Dream quotes by Paul E. Miller
The very notion that millions of workers displaced by the re-engineering and automation of the agricultural, manufacturing, and service sectors can be retrained to be scientists, engineers, technicians, executives, consultants, teachers, lawyers and the like, and then somehow find the appropriate number of job openings in the very narrow high-tech sector, seems at best a pipe dream, and at worst a delusion. ~ Jeremy Rifkin
Pipe Dream quotes by Jeremy Rifkin
Microkernels are not a pipe dream. They represent proven technology. ~ Andrew S. Tanenbaum
Pipe Dream quotes by Andrew S. Tanenbaum
I hate you," Andrew said casually. He took a last long drag from his cigarette and flicked it off the roof. "You were supposed to be a side effect of the drugs."
"I'm not a hallucination," Neil said, nonplussed.
"You are a pipe dream," Andrew said. ~ Nora Sakavic
Pipe Dream quotes by Nora Sakavic
Every dream is a pipe dream before someone achieves it. ~ Leah Raeder
Pipe Dream quotes by Leah Raeder
For all who believe that peace is not an ideal or pipe dream but anecessity. ~Libba Bray

They believe, and believing changes everything. ~Gemma, The sweet far thing, Libba Bray

Bu the past cannot be changed, and we carry our choices with us forward, into the unknown. ~Circe, The sweet far thing, Libba Bray

Stop, gemma, before you go mad.
Or am I already there? ~Gemma, The sweet far thing, Libba Bray

peace is not only better than war, but infinitely more aruous. ~George Shaw ~ Libba Bray
Pipe Dream quotes by Libba Bray
Every team begins the year with the goal of going to the NCAA tournament. Until somebody takes that dream away, you pursue it. The reality is, we're a long way off from being in the NCAA tournament. For us to do that is a pipe dream. But if we were to win our last four, we're 8-8 in the best conference in the country. We'd have an opportunity. ~ Dan Monson
Pipe Dream quotes by Dan Monson
I suppose we all share this pipe-dream of being able to reach out a hand and find anything at will; what is amazing is that we think that good filing could somehow make it comes true. On the contrary: putting a letter into a filing system is like releasing your ferret in the Hampton Court maze. ~ Katharine Whitehorn
Pipe Dream quotes by Katharine Whitehorn
I don't reckon there are many writers who start out really expecting writing to be an attainable occupation. Well, I didn't. It was a pipe dream. ~ Sarah Hall
Pipe Dream quotes by Sarah Hall
A vision without a plan is a pipe dream. ~ Brian P. Moran
Pipe Dream quotes by Brian P. Moran
To hell with the truth! As the history of the world proves, the truth has no bearing on anything. It's irrelevant and immaterial, as the lawyers say. The lie of a pipe dream is what gives life to the whole misbegotten mad lot of us, drunk or sober. ~ Eugene O'Neill
Pipe Dream quotes by Eugene O'Neill
The liberation of adulthood as we'd conceived it from below was a pipe-dream; with oppressors deposed we became our own tyrants. ~ Lionel Shriver
Pipe Dream quotes by Lionel Shriver
Financial fitness is not pipe dream or a state of mind it's a reality if you are willing to pursue it and embrace it. ~ Will Robinson
Pipe Dream quotes by Will Robinson
I think there's a real tension between capitalism and morality. That's not to say these systems aren't powerful and useful, but to assume that capitalism can somehow assure moral behavior or character, that's just a pipe dream. ~ Michael Pollan
Pipe Dream quotes by Michael Pollan
Gilded palace of Flying Burritos
Excellent Nouveau Mexican Cuisine
We all got to wear Swank-Ass Nudie Suits
I should have known it was a lousy pipe dream
Ohhh, Ohhh, what an awesome job
Ohhh, Ohhh, what do I do now??
Ohh, Ohhhhh, it's like I've been robbed
Spent the last of my paycheque
And I'm feelin' pretty downnnnn!! ~ Bryan Lee O'Malley
Pipe Dream quotes by Bryan Lee O'Malley
Let us, above all, be clear that, without a convincing program of debt relief to start the new millennium, our objective of halving world poverty by 2015 will be only a pipe dream. ~ Kofi Annan
Pipe Dream quotes by Kofi Annan
Professional accountability is a good thing. Without it, excellence is merely a pipe dream and even average performance isn't a realistic expectation. ~ Lee Ellis
Pipe Dream quotes by Lee Ellis
I don't want to base my life on a symbol," he said resolutely. "I want reality, and the Christian faith has always been rooted in reality. What's not rooted in reality is the faith of liberal scholars. They're the ones who are following a pipe dream, but Christianity is not a pipe dream. ~ Gregory A. Boyd
Pipe Dream quotes by Gregory A. Boyd
As long as there will be something to conquer, world peace will be a pipe dream ~ Bangambiki Habyarimana
Pipe Dream quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
She didnʹt know if she could carry on by herself, but then, she realized that if this wasnʹt a dream - and dear God, did it feel real - there was no magic "stop" in real life. If she couldnʹt deal with loneliness in a dream, she never would be able to while waking. ~ Richelle Mead
Pipe Dream quotes by Richelle Mead
Fancy it, crave it, desire it and you'll never go wrong because to fancy, to crave and to desire something gives you the ability to focus on your dream and to know this is what you were born to do. ~ Euginia Herlihy
Pipe Dream quotes by Euginia Herlihy
The danger of a dream is the courage to conquer. ~ Lailah Gifty Akita
Pipe Dream quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
We don't teach our children how to dream. ~ Stephen LaBerge
Pipe Dream quotes by Stephen LaBerge
It was like a dream, a beautiful, soothing dream of late autumn: low, gray skies, smell of woodsmoke, fallen leaves crackling beneath my feet, and somewhere out there, in the farmsteads and plantations ahead of me, swift retribution! Freedom! The bloody work of the Lord! ~ Russell Banks
Pipe Dream quotes by Russell Banks
STAGE 2: You fall asleep for eight minutes and you have that dream where you've missed a semester of classes and don't know where you're supposed to be and when you wake up you realize that even in sleep you're fucking your life up. ~ Jenny Lawson
Pipe Dream quotes by Jenny Lawson
The voices inside you can lead your soul astray Believe in what you dream Don't turn away don't you turn away. Reach for the light You might touch the sky Stand on the mountaintop and see yourself flying Reach for the light to capture a star Come out of the darkness and find out who you are. ~ Steve Winwood
Pipe Dream quotes by Steve Winwood
The heroes and discoverers have found true more than was previously believed, only when they were expecting and dreaming of something more than their contemporaries dreamed of, or even themselves discovered, that is, when they were in a frame of mind fitted to behold the truth. Referred to the world's standard, they are always insane. Even savages have indirectly surmised as much. ~ Henry David Thoreau
Pipe Dream quotes by Henry David Thoreau
I think dreams are metaphors. Everything you do in writing is metaphorical. So it seems like the same arena to me. ~ Charlie Kaufman
Pipe Dream quotes by Charlie Kaufman
If the world is as you dream it, why had I dreamed such a world? ~ John Perkins
Pipe Dream quotes by John Perkins
You can't fake passion. It is the fuel that drives any dream and makes you happy to be alive. ~ Mac Anderson
Pipe Dream quotes by Mac Anderson
The ascent of any route begins, in dreams at least, the autumn before. Our minds ring, involuntarily, with the alluring names of mountains, aiguilles, faces and ridges, Is it the name itself which is so tempting, or the picture we have of the mountain itself, or does the appeal come from our feeling of the actual process of climbing? All of us have our reasons, innumerable, personal and complex. From many points of view a climb is a challenge we must meet. ~ Gaston Rebuffat
Pipe Dream quotes by Gaston Rebuffat
Then go," Dan said. When Nathaniel looked back at her, she stressed, "But come back to us as soon as they're done with you, okay? We'll figure this out as a team." "As a family." Nicky attempted a smile. It was weak, but it was encouraging. This had to be a cruel dream. Their forgiveness threatened to burn Nathaniel up from the inside-out, as healing as it was damning. He didn't deserve their friendship or their trust. He'd never be able to repay them for rallying behind him like this. He could try the rest of his life, however long it was going to be now that Stuart was in the picture and Nathan was out, and he'd always fall short. ~ Nora Sakavic
Pipe Dream quotes by Nora Sakavic
Three hours of writing require twenty hours of preparation. Luckily I have learned to dream about the work, which saves me some working time. ~ John Steinbeck
Pipe Dream quotes by John Steinbeck
I haven't always been this weak person; this broken woman. I used to dream, and when I did, I dreamt big. I had plans, plans of a future so bright it would blind you. I can still remember the day those dreams, those grand plans, and that future as bright as the sun went poof. ~ Harper Sloan
Pipe Dream quotes by Harper Sloan
Life can be a dream, life can be a beautiful mess but, people make it hard with too much of ego, jealousy, anger and aggression. ~ Jyoti Patel
Pipe Dream quotes by Jyoti Patel
I suppose there must be idiots who dream of signing deals with publishers while fully intending to drink martinis in cool bars or ride around on skateboards. But the actual writers I know are experts in neurotic self-torture. Every page of writing is the result of a thousand tiny decisions and desperate acts of will. ~ Helen Garner
Pipe Dream quotes by Helen Garner
I had thought the second sight was a dream, or a vision, a sudden rush of breath. I had thought that the truth might step into my hut, like a ghost, and say its name
that I might find it, if I sought it. But, I was wrong.
You will know it, in time ...
I knew it, now. And I knew it was a feeling
deep, in the chest, or in more than the chest. It was a feeling in the bones, in the womb, in the soul. ~ Susan Fletcher
Pipe Dream quotes by Susan Fletcher
At first blush, it seems that the young people who were shot down in the parking lot at the base of Blanket Hill gave up their lives for a dream that died with them. ~ William Kunstler
Pipe Dream quotes by William Kunstler
I think God calls and encourages us to dream big, but sometimes we put God in a box in a very small way, when God wants us to look outside the box. ~ Jodi Benson
Pipe Dream quotes by Jodi Benson
Lost, so small amid that dark, hands grown cold, body image fading down corridors of television sky. ~ William Gibson
Pipe Dream quotes by William Gibson
A dream my girlfriend and I have is to move to New York for a year or two because we just love the city. I would take some acting classes. ~ Daniel Bruhl
Pipe Dream quotes by Daniel Bruhl
A pencil and a dream can take you anywhere. ~ J. A. Meyer
Pipe Dream quotes by J. A. Meyer
What was she like, this Laure who enjoyed having lunch in the garden, was frightened of red ants, dremt she was making love to her pet which had been transformed into a man, and had a signed Patrick Modiano?

She was an enigma. It was like looking at someone through a fogged-up window. her face was like one encountered in a dream, whose features disolve as soon as you try to recall them. ~ Antoine Laurain
Pipe Dream quotes by Antoine Laurain
Matthew kept hinting that Strike was somehow a fake. He seemed to feel that being a private detective was a far-fetched job, like astronaut or lion tamer; that real people did not do such things. ~ Robert Galbraith
Pipe Dream quotes by Robert Galbraith
I have the impression that our children are much more excited about going to school than children in other countries are. They think of it as a special privilege. Going to school, being with other children, getting books and pencils - all of that is like a dream for them. ~ Cheryl Benard
Pipe Dream quotes by Cheryl Benard
Theology is a thing of unreason altogether, an edifice of assumptions and dreams, a superstructure without a substructure ~ Ambrose Bierce
Pipe Dream quotes by Ambrose Bierce
I want that.
I don't think a week goes by I don't dream about it.
The way it feels to move inside you.
The way your body grabs on like tight velvet.
The sounds you make, like having me inside you is the best thing that ever happened to you. ~ Josh Lanyon
Pipe Dream quotes by Josh Lanyon
All connections - great and small - that come to those who have a dream, and stay focused on that dream, change into gifts for realizing their dreams. ~ Ilchi Lee
Pipe Dream quotes by Ilchi Lee
Change your thinking and you can change your life. Once you have a vision of how you want your life to be you can start living your dream. ~ Infinite Ideas
Pipe Dream quotes by Infinite Ideas
Arise in mighty strength to pursue your dream. ~ Lailah Gifty Akita
Pipe Dream quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
On the first day of May the people of the crofter townland are up betimes and busy as bees about to swarm. This is the day of migrating, bho baile gu beinn (from townland to moorland), from the winter homestead to the summer sheiling. The summer of their joy is come, the summer of the sheiling, the song, the pipe and the dance, when the people ascend the hill to the clustered bothies, overlooking the distant sea from among the fronded ferns and fragrant heather, where neighbour meets neighbour, and lover meets lover. ~ Alexander Carmichael
Pipe Dream quotes by Alexander Carmichael
The theatre can teach us some truth, but it is the truth of the illusory nature of our existence. It can alert us to the dream-like quality of our lives, their brevity, mutability and lack of solid grounds. As such, by reminding us of our mortality, it can foster in us the virtue of humility. ~ Terry Eagleton
Pipe Dream quotes by Terry Eagleton
Within every little dream seed is the potential viability of sprouting to becoming a great forest. ~ Israelmore Ayivor
Pipe Dream quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
I'm very pro-American - my entire family escaped poverty in Italy because they rightly believed in the American dream. ~ Camille Paglia
Pipe Dream quotes by Camille Paglia
When it comes to
my dream,
the way I like to describe it
is that
it's a rabid beast
that found me when I
was young ~ Jason Reynolds
