Having a dream

I’ve been reading a book recently called “Gallant Women” which is a collection of stories of inspiring women and girls. Printed by the National Sunday School Union in the 1930’s it’s all a bit jolly-hockey-sticks, but entertaining all the same.

A quote in the story of Mary Jones particularly struck me:

But what is the good of a dream if it is concerned only with everyday and easy thing! A dream worth having is one which will take all your persistence and all your resources, and then need almost a miracle to be added, if it is ever to come true.
