"Who what am I? My answer: 
I am the sum total of everything that went before me,
of all I have been seen done,
of everything done-to-me.
I am everyone everything whose being-in-the-world affected
was affected by mine.
I am anything that happens after I’ve gone
which would not have happened if I had not come.
Nor am I particularly exceptional in this matter;
each "I," every one of the now-six-hundred-million-plus of us,
contains a similar multitude.

I repeat for the last time:
to understand me, you’ll have to swallow a world."
-Saleem Sinai, Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie

"Every man’s heart one day beats its final beat. 
His lungs breathe their final breath.
And if what that man did in his life
makes the blood pulse through
the body of others and makes them believe deeper,
in something larger than life then his essence, his spirit,
will be immortalized."

-Ultimate Warrior

It is cruel, you know, that music should be so beautiful. It has the beauty of loneliness of pain: of strength and freedom. The beauty of disappointment and never-satisfied love. The cruel beauty of nature and everlasting beauty of monotony.

“All the world’s a stage, 
And all the men and women merely players; 
They have their exits and their entrances; 
And one man in his time plays many parts, 
His acts being seven ages.”
