Personal Quotes 

A pioneer into illusion, an adventurer into the unknown. To give beyond reason, to care beyond hope, to love without limit; to reach, stretch and dream in spite of your fears. These are the hallmarks of divinity-traits of the immortal-your badges of honor. Your light has illuminated darkened paths, your gaze has lifted broken spirits, and already your life has changed the course of history.
