    Hello again, guys.
    I would like to express in Latin, without transgressing its nature as far as possible, these expressions, "dream high" and "think big", imperative and infinitive mood. Can you help me?

    Greetings, and sorry not to have an epigrammatically concise solution to this one.

    altiora spera, maiora considera


    This would be imperative. I'm not sure that considerare is the mot juste here. You could also try maiora meditare.

    Either way, the infinitives would be:

    altiora sperare, maiora considerare/meditari

    I hope someone here can come up with a neater suggestion.
