  1. vision

    A dream is strictly a train of thoughts, fantasies, and images passing through the mind during sleep; a vision may occur when one is awake, and in clear exercise of the senses and mental powers; vision is often applied to something seen by the mind through supernatural agency, whether in sleep or wakefulness, conceived as more real and authoritative than a dream; a trance is an abnormal state, which is different from normal sleep or wakefulness. A reverie is a purposeless drifting of the mind when awake, under the influence of mental images; a day-dream that which passes before the mind in such condition. A fancy is some image presented to the mind, often in the fullest exercise of its powers. Hallucination is the seeming perception of non-existent objects, as in insanity or delirium. In the figurative sense, we speak of dreams of fortune, visions of glory, with little difference of meaning except that the vision is thought of as fuller and more vivid. We speak of a trance of delight when the emotion almost sweeps one away from the normal exercise of the faculties.

  1. Prashant Agarwal:

    It is said that you must have a vision before you manifest and once you have the vision your next step should be to map down your journey. It means you need to have a plan. You must plan what is the direction you will follow to reach to your vision. It is important to understand that your plan must be accordance with the vision. Hence always remember that you plan can be moulded but you vision must remain constant.

  2. Jonah Peretti:

    I think that there are two paths for AI in digital media, one path is the obvious path that a lot of people will do — but it’s a depressing path — using the technology for cost savings and spamming out a bunch of SEO articles that are lower quality than what a journalist could do, but a tenth of the cost. That’s one vision, but to me, that’s a depressing vision and a shortsighted vision because in the long run it’s not going to work.

  3. George Pataki:

    My vision was not a partisan vision. It was a vision about people, about what we could accomplish together, if we are to flourish as a people, we have to fall in love with America again.

  4. Candace Owens:

    Octavio Jones/Getty Images has every right to be angry, but if you stay at a place of anger, right, you are ignoring everything that is going on around you. You’re no longer looking and accessing things in the way that you should be accessing things because you’re holding on to this almost vengeful spirit, is he going to get over the trauma of the election of 2020 and begin to paint a vision for 2024 ? What is Octavio Jones/Getty Images vision for 2024 ? Is it I ’m back ? Because that’s not a vision to me. It needs to be more than, ‘ I ’m back. ’.

  5. Willie Stone:

    Vision without a task is only a dream. A task without a vision is but drudgery. But vision with a task is a dream fulfilled.
