“The stars are like letters that inscribe themselves at every moment in the sky.

All events are coordinated.
All things depend on each other.
Everything breathes together.”

“I never tried to be anything other than a dreamer.
I never paid any attention to people who told me to go out and live.

The only thing I ever loved was pure nothingness.”
