One day you'll ask me which is more important to me, 
you or my life. I'll say, Of course my life. And you'll 
go and walk away without even knowing that you are my life.


 For Max:
Legend says, when you can't sleep at night, it's because, you're awake in someone else's dream


When you want something all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.

when it it over  
it IS over
