Quotes: reality as foundation of dream

“In the great tradition of these speeches, generally what happens is the speaker says something along the lines of ‘you need to chase your dreams.’ But I am not going to say that because I don’t believe it,” Nolan said. “I don’t want you to chase your dreams. I want you to chase your reality. I want you to understand that you chase your reality not at the expense of your dreams, but as the foundation of your dreams.”

―Christopher Nolan (director of Inception), speech at Princeton’s Class Day ceremony 2015
