Giving up your dreams is easy

The only difference between the Saint and the sinner is that every Saint has a past, and every sinner has a future.
- Oscar Wilde

Dreams are a future that hasn't happened yet.  Because it hasn't happened, it's easy to give it up.  "Easy".

Giving up your past is not as easy.  It's as easy as a sinner becoming a Saint.
Many people genuinely do not wish to be saints, and it is possible that some who achieve or aspire to sainthood have never had much temptation to be human beings.
- George Orwell

We have a doxie with a dobie attitude. They sure are funny little dogs.

We are informed by our past-it makes us who we are since we are the sum of our experience. Doesn't have to control our future though or our dreams.
