Almost anyone who has been famous at one time or another, is known for 'something' he/she had said during
their 15 minutes in the spot-light...
 
Now; I'm sure that we will all agree,
that 'some' have a shelf-life a little longer than 15 minutes, like maybe forever!!! 
 
Which goes to show ya,
we all can't be famous and/or well known;
but all of us can be remembered by something
we have shared with others:
 
So, I dedicate this part of my personal web-site to the following individuals who have said something that
I am in either total agreement with,
or I believe should be 'highlighted' because
of the profound meaning it was meant to have,
enjoy...
 
Even though I'm just an everyday unknown,
I thought I would start off by including one of mine:
 
 
"Everyone has a story to tell;
its how you tell it and who you tell it to,
that really matters." 

"Trust me when I woke up today I had no plans to be awesome, 
but shit happens."
