Dreams are lovely, but they’re just dreams. … It’s hard work that makes things happen. (Shonda Rhimes, TV producer and author)

Dreaming, hopeful imagining, is a good practice. But, as Rhimes suggests, “[Dreams are] fleeting, ephemeral, pretty.” She says, “Dreams do not become true just because you dream them. It’s hard work that creates change.” So, don’t criticize dreamers or hesitate to do some dreaming yourself, but remember it’s hard work that makes dreams come true.

All hard work brings a profit. (Proverbs 14:23) Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart. (Colossians 3:23)
