The Top Ten

1 One day you will ask me which is more important – my life or yours? I will say mine and you will walk away not knowing that you are my life.

He was the epitome of greatness

2 When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.
3 I prefer to be a dreamer among the humblest, with visions to be realized, than lord among those without dreams and desires.

19 Only love and death will change all things
