Rêve pas, vole de tes ailles. Sidewalk philosopher in Paris

Don’t dream, fly with your own wings.

The French have always struck me as being more cerebral than most nationalities. They are usually also devoted to one philosophy of life or another. This quote is definitely from an Existential-leaning artist.  It encourages us to take control of our own destiny  by actively making things happen as opposed to merely dreaming about them.
