STOP AND THINK – If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them. (Henry David Thoreau, 19th century American Writer, Philosopher, and Naturalist)

It is said that some people are “so heavenly minded they are no earthly good.” Thoreau seems to want to tie the two together. Think and dream widely (even wildly, maybe), and then put effort into making those visions become reality. It takes both imagination and hard work to achieve worthy accomplishments. So, marry the two, dreams and work.

Much dreaming and many words are meaningless (Ecclesiastes 5:7). Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands (1 Thessalonians 4:11).
