Matt  Smith
“I am and always will be the optimist, the hoper of far-flung hopes and the dreamer of improblable dreams.”
Matt Smith

John Lennon
“I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?”
John Lennon

“I want adventure in the great wide somewhere.
I want it more than I can tell.
And for once it might be grand
To have someone understand
I want so much more than they’ve got planned…”
Howard Ashman, Disney's Beauty and the Beast

Arthur Conan Doyle
“Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.”
Arthur Conan Doyle, The Complete Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

“And, in the end
The love you take
is equal to the love you make.”
Paul McCartney, The Beatles Illustrated Lyrics
