    I fully agree with Wini. A great poet acts with brevity rather than to waste reems of paper to explain the basics of life - his as well as ours. Anybody can draw inspiration from this tiny poem. (Report) Reply

    Why to write paragraphs about ones ambition and passion, this great man here as told everything one should know about dreams in about 7-8 short, beautiful and inspiring lines. (Report) Reply

    Langston, u wrote this piece especially for me. I have soared above the storms, have trodden in the searing deserts: the fueling force being this poem... For when dreams die, men r like soulless creatures... (Report) Reply

    Our dreams help us drive forward, the goal on the horizon. But we can not lose ourselves to those dreams. Otherwise we miss our own life; Go to Google, search The Truth Contest, click the first result, begin reading The Present (Report) Reply

    Salute to Hughes who conveys great, 'saving' concepts! I will not dissapoint, Hughes. For every course will I cling to a dream for when it leaps off, sanity leaps off and life becomes sound and fury signifying nothing. (Report) Reply
