With the sleep still in your eyes
No matter what your dream might be.

„Follow your heart, follow your dreams. If writing is your passion, put everything you have into it.“
— J.M. DeMatteis comics illustrator 1953
Context: Follow your heart, follow your dreams. If writing is your passion, put everything you have into it. Let that passion, that joy, lead you. In the end it might not lead you to exactly the place you thought you were heading... but it will absolutely lead you someplace wonderful. And don’t let the Nay-Sayers, the Practical People, stop you or wear you down. Follow your dreams... and you can’t go wrong.
