Ag Aisling - Dreaming

I'm in the process of trying to live out my dream of being a full time writer, and I encourage everyone to live their dreams. Life is too short not to! (Of course you need to honor your obligations in order to live and dream responsibly - these are dreams not fantasies.)

This is a selection of inspirational quotes and anecdotes on dreams, writing, and life in general.
