“Dream on, but don’t imagine they’ll all come true.”

Billy Joel, Vienna

This is again a song that came up recently and this line reminded me about having expectations for things. Sometimes you get your hopes up so high that you are inevitably let down no matter what, and at other times, you can be so negative towards something that you don’t even let it make you happy. This is a funny line, as the ‘not imagining they’ll all come true’ part seems really pessimistic, but at the same time, it hints at reality in quite a well-balanced way.
