What do you imagine will happen going forward,
as time flows endlessly on?
You cannot create a future if you can’t imagine one.
Only when there is determination to move forward
will new standards be revealed.
Innovative ideas and state-of-the-art technologies
can only be conceived through the freedom to imagine,
the strength to hope, and the boldness to achieve.
The future is a gift from the present,
and is only given to those who pursue it.
Let’s aspire to a wondrous future,
creating its image for all to see.
And never stop imagining how the future
of our world may appear.
