Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die

    In all things it is better to hope than to despair.
    - Goethe

    This is what I think of with this poem. Even if dreaming and hoping leads to nothing in the end, dreaming will still keep us motivated. An unmotivated life is an unhappy life.

    Even this poem appears short it contains an inspiring message.These simple words really ignite hope in our
    mind, fill courage in our soul, awake our capabilities. Each time I read it, it truly uplifts my confidence and
    faith on myself. It calls for energize our self with realistic dreams and unleash our potential to conquer
    our world. It is like a candle light for desperate and broken minds.
