Quote of the Day
I have to admit I've found myself doing the same things that a lot of other rock stars do or are forced to do. Which is not being able to respond to mail, not being able to keep up on current music, and I'm pretty much locked away a lot. The outside world is pretty foreign to me.
I met in the street a very poor young man who was in love. His hat was old, his coat worn, his cloak was out at the elbows, the water passed through his shoes, - and the stars through his soul.
I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing than to teach ten thousand stars how not to dance.
e. e. cummings

What is the good of your stars and trees, your sunrise and the wind, if they do not enter into our daily lives?
E. M. Forster
I can find in my undergraduate classes, bright students who do not know that the stars rise and set at night, or even that the Sun is a star.
Nations, like stars, are entitled to eclipse. All is well, provided the light returns and the eclipse does not become endless night. Dawn and resurrection are synonymous. The reappearance of the light is the same as the survival of the soul.
Things are as they are. Looking out into it the universe at night, we make no comparisons between right and wrong stars, nor between well and badly arranged constellations.
People commonly travel the world over to see rivers and mountains, new stars, garish birds, freak fish, grotesque breeds of human; they fall into an animal stupor that gapes at existence and they think they have seen something.
Only by contending with challenges that seem to be beyond your strength to handle at the moment you can grow more surely toward the stars.
If we long to believe that the stars rise and set for us, that we are the reason there is a Universe, does science do us a disservice in deflating our conceits?
Turn your scars into stars.
Robert H. Schuller
I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing than teach 10,000 stars how not to dance.
e. e. cummings
For age is opportunity no less Than youth itself, though in another dress, And as the evening twilight fades away The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Humanity has the stars in its future, and that future is too important to be lost under the burden of juvenile folly and ignorant superstition.
How is it they live in such harmony the billions of stars - when most men can barely go a minute without declaring war in their minds about someone they know.
How far away the stars seem, and how far is our first kiss, and ah, how old my heart.
William Butler Yeats
I'm a bit of a P. T. Barnum. I make stars out of everyone.
Do not look at stars as bright spots only. Try to take in the vastness of the universe.
Forests, lakes, and rivers, clouds and winds, stars and flowers, stupendous glaciers and crystal snowflakes - every form of animate or inanimate existence, leaves its impress upon the soul of man.

Maybe that's what life is... a wink of the eye and winking stars.
I came to Hollywood and within a decade I was one of the biggest action stars of all time.
