If you are looking for inspirational quotes about wishes, here is what you need. Wishes are not something that only has to be a word that rests within your mind, but can be turned into reality. Wishing doesn't get you anywhere except to create a false sense of moving towards what you want. Wishes can become more than a thought when you turn these wishes into doable plans. Listen to your wishes only as a way to understand where you want to go in life, and not as an exercise in futility.
"As you think, so you are. As you dream, so you become. As you create your wishes, so they create you." Wendy Garrett
"Wishes can be your best avenue of getting what you want when you turn wishes into action. Action moves your wish to the forefront from thought to reality." Byron Pulsifer
"Our deepest wishes are whispers of our authentic selves. We must learn to respect them. We must learn to listen." Sarah Ban Breathnach
"Young people tell what they are doing, old people what they have done, and fools what they wish to do." Author Unknown
"Intent is not a thought, or an object, or a wish. Intent is what can make a man succeed when his thoughts tell him that he is defeated. It operates in spite of the warrior's indulgence. Intent is what makes him invulnerable. Intent is what sends a shaman through a wall, through space, to infinity." Carlos Castaneda
A person should design the way he makes a living around how he wishes to make a life. Charlie Byrd
A wise unselfishness is not a surrender of yourself to the wishes of anyone, but only to the best discoverable course of action. David Seabury
If I had time in a bottle,
If words could make wishes come true,
I'd save everyday for eternity passes,
And then I would spend them with you.
If your knowledge of fire has been turned to certainty by words alone, then seek to be cooked by the fire itself. Don't abide in borrowed certainty. There is no real certainty until you burn; if you wish for this, sit down in the fire. Mevlana Rumi
