Abandoning dreams feels like executing puppies.

Meaning, just...wrong. But it's messed up because we can't achieve ALL of our dreams, so it's kind of inevitable...abandoning certain dreams that is, not executing puppies. I suppose it's best to mainly file dreams away (put 'em in the kennel?). Maybe for a while, but eventually you gotta let those buggers go free.
