Politics, it seems to me, for years, or all too long, has been concerned with right or left instead of right or wrong.
As far as I'm concerned, there won't be a Beatles reunion as long as John Lennon remains dead.
It was such a leap in my career when 'Truman Show' came along. It's always been a long process for me insofar as recognition goes, but that's OK because you appreciate it when it comes.
Unfortunately, we can never truly know if we're making the right decision. What we do know is that wherever we are, that's where the Light wants us to be. It's the best place for us to be now. And as long as we don't try to control the situation, then we won't end up in the place we shouldn't be.
