A River of Dreams is a book of photographs featuring Barack Obama's neighbors in Hyde Park, Chicago, celebrating his election as President of the United States in 2008.
However, this book isn't really about President Obama as it is about his example. What lessons can we take from his improbable accomplishment?
To answer that question, I researched what revered teachers from various times and cultures had to say about the power of our dreams to change the world and included some of their quotes alongside of the photographs. I hope you enjoy the result.
