Many people die with their music still in them. Why is this so? Too often it is because they are always getting ready to live. Before they know it, time runs out.

- George C. Scott

One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.

Watch your habits; they become your character.
Watch your character for it will become your destiny.

When the night is cloudy, I still believe in stars,
Even when the darkness blocks the light.
They're shining out like beacons on the other side of hope.
