I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars. — Og Mandino
"I have done this—made the sad prince laugh. Made his grieving parents smile. None but me. Think you only kings have power? Stand on a stage and hold the hearts of men in your hands. Make them laugh with a gesture, cry with a word. Make them love you. And you will know what power is."
— Jennifer Donnelly, American writer of young-adult fiction, born August 16, 1963
