Possibilities

If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never. And what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility!

The power which resides in man is new in nature, and none but he knows what that is which he can do, nor does he know until he has tried.

Oh man! There is no planet sun or star could hold you, if you but knew what you are.

We all have possibilities we don't know about. We can do things we don't even dream we can do.

Dale Carnegie (1888-1955) American writer.

I dwell in Possibility.

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.

We never know how high we are till we are called to rise; and then, if we are true to plan, our stature's touch the skies.
