"Everyone dreams: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.
This I did.
I meant to make a new nation, to give millions the foundations on which to build a dream-palace of their thoughts. So high an aim called out the inherent nobility of their minds, and made them play a part.
We won.””—T.E. Lawrence, The Seven Pillars Of Wisdom
