“Success in the arts is not measured in money or fame. It is about reaching that inner sanctum where the purest form of artistry takes place.”
Craig A. Hart, Becoming Moon

“Bob and I talked occasionally about the Church and religion, and once both expressed our amazement that we had somehow been born into the one group of people who were living as true Christians should. After all, we could just as easily have been born into a family that watched TV or, heaven forbid, into a family of Baptists!”
