          "All men dream: but not equally.
          Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses
          of their minds wake in the day to find it was vanity,
          but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men,
          for they may act on their dream with open eyes,
          to make it possible."

          T. E. Lawrence
