Heroes didn’t leap tall buildings or stop bullets with an outstretched hand; they didn’t wear boots and capes. They bled, and they bruised, and their superpowers were as simple as listening, or loving.

         – Jodi Picoult

If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend’s or of thine own were: any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee.

         –  John Donne

Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.

         –  Paulo Coelho

Do. Or do not. There is no try.

         – Yoda, Jedi Master
