    ★★★★★

    “To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
    Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
    To the last syllable of recorded time;
    And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
    The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
    Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,

    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
    Signifying nothing.”

    "Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?"

    "This is like coming home, like coming home after years away among Trojans and Lestrygonians, like coming home to a place where everyone is like you, where people know, they just know - coming home as when everything falls into place and you suddenly realize that for seventeen years all you've been doing was fiddling with the wrong combination."
