“Our desires presage the capacities within us; they are harbingers of what we shall be able to accomplish. What we can do and want to do is projected in our imagination, quite outside ourselves, and into the future. We are attracted to what is already ours in secret. Thus passionate anticipation transforms what is indeed possible into dreamt-for reality.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson, was an American lecturer, essayist and poet, who led the Transcendentalist movement of the mid-19th century.
