The impossible Dream / Der unmögliche Traum / O sonho impossível / El sueño imposible

We all like to believe in the impossible. To see when people beat the odds. There are people who achieve incredible things, and they could not have done so if they had not believed those things possible.

How do you choose the dreams to chase? When is chasing the impossible dream foolish and when is it visionary? When should you be realistic and when idealistic? How can you be sure that a dream is impossible?

Believe in your dreams and believe in yourself. There are no limits to what you could achieve. Whenever something impossible comes in to my mind or something that someone says can not be done, I develop the attitude of doing it more determinedly automatically.

It is all on your beliefs. Your mind is a powerful organ and it can make you do what you assume you can not. Train your brain and try to remove the word impossible from your vocabulary.

The ‘The impossible Dream’ is the most popular song from the Broadway musical ‘Man of La Mancha’ and is also featured in the 1972 film of the same name starring Peter O’Toole.

The complete song is first sung by Don Quixote as he stands vigil over his armor, in response to Dulcinea’s question about what he means by ‘following the quest’.

It is reprised partially three more times – the last by prisoners in a dungeon as Miguel de Cervantes and his manservant mount the drawbridge-like prison staircase to face trial by the Spanish Inquisition.

The spanish novel ‘Don Quixote’ by Miguel de Cervantes, published in s, in 1605 and 1615, follows the adventures of a noble named Alonso Quixano who reads so many chivalric romances that he loses his sanity and decides to become a knight-errant, reviving chivalry and serving his country under the name Don Quixote de la Mancha.

Don Quixote does not see the World for what it is and prefers to imagine that he is living out a knightly story.

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go

To right the unrightable wrong
To be better far than you are[
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest, to follow that star
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far
To be willing to give when there’s no more to give
[To be willing to die so that honor and justice may live
And I know if I’ll only be true to this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm when I’m laid to my rest

And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars,
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star
