You know a dream is like a river, ever changing as it flows.

You know a dream is like a river, ever changing as it flows.
And a dreamer's just a vessel that must follow where it goes.
Trying to learn from what's behind you and never knowing what's in store
makes each day a constant battle just to stay between the shores.
And I will sail my vessel 'til the river runs dry.
Like a bird upon the wind, these waters are my sky.
I'll never reach my destination if I never try,
So I will sail my vessel 'til the river runs dry.
Too many times we stand aside and let the water slip away.
To what we put off 'til tomorrow has now become today.
So don't you sit upon the shore and say you're satisfied.
Choose to chance the rapids and dare to dance the tides.

Garth Brooks, song "The River" co-written with Victoria Shaw.

Terrific and distinct quote Bruce!
I may want to put this up on my blog also, but I'll ensure to reference you.
Good to return here for a visit. Hope to see you out there.
