    It is impossible to empasize strongly enough the power of creative, uninhibited imagination. Every achievement from time immemorial has emerged as the end result of a dream, a vision, or even what may have seemed to be a far-fetched idea.There is no such thing as a small dream.

1840 - "Anyone traveling 30 miles per hour would surely suffocate."
1878 - "Electrical lights are not worthy of serious attention."
1901 - "No possible combination van be united into a practical machine by which men can fly."
    Open the door to the closet of your mind. Have fun. Let yourself go and dream regularly.
