the story of dreams

"What, after all, is romance? 



It is the music of those who make the world turn, the people who make things happen. 



Romance is the story of dreams that could come true and so often do. 



Why do men ride the range? Go to sea? Explore the polar icecaps? Why do they ride rockets to unknown worlds? 



It is because of romance, 



because of the stories they have read and the stories they have dreamed.



Some have said this is the age of the nonhero, that the day of the hero is gone. 



That's nonsense. 



When the hero is gone, man himself will be gone, for the hero is our future, our destiny."



Louis L'amour
