Personal Quotes (3)

There's a Diamond in your dustbin.
Friends are not made, but reveal themselves when you least expect them to .
At the end of the day, theater wins, because its the most independent form of expression, the most powerful. Those hypnotic moments when a great actor transports you, mesmerizes you into another dimension, only theater can do this.
