Vincent Van Gogh
Our soulmate is the one who makes life come to life.
Everyone is handed adversity in life. No one's journey is easy. It's how they handle it that makes people unique.

Positive thinking is more than just a tagline. It changes the way we behave. And I firmly believe that when I am positive, it not only makes me better, but it also makes those around me better.
Having a second chance makes you want to work even harder.
I believe every guitar player inherently has something unique about their playing. They just have to identify what makes them different and develop it.
Men make counterfeit money; in many more cases, money makes counterfeit men.
