“If you can dream it, you can do it. Always remember that this whole thing was started with a dream and a mouse.”
–Walt Disney, born Dec. 5, 1901
I love this quote for so many reasons. For starters, it’s inspiring, it’s charming, and it’s amazing to think what can be accomplished when we believe in our dreams. Walt Disney was a dreamer who believed anything was possible.
Another reason I love this quote: For me, too, it all started with a dream and a mouse … or in my case a dream about a mouse. The first dream I remember – the first in a very long line of dreams to follow – was a dream about an inflatable Mickey Mouse doll exploding in the living room of my childhood home. I was about 4 or 5 years old when I reported this first dream … and I’ve been a dreamer ever since.
