"you enter this world knowing you are loved and you leave this world knowing the same, then everything that happens in between can be dealt with.
To give someone a piece of your heart, is worth more than all the wealth in the world."
A star can never die. It just turns into a smile and melts back into the cosmic music, the dance of life."
I'm just like anyone. I cut and I bleed and I embarrass easily.
The greatest education in the world is watching the masters at work."
