“Don't you find it odd,” she continued, “that when you're a kid, everyone, all the world, encourages you to follow your dreams. But when you're older, somehow they act offended if you even try.” – Ethan Hawke, The Hottest State.
“Ester asked why people are sad. “That’s simple, they are the prisoners of their personal history. Everyone believes that the main aim in life is to follow a plan.

And that is why they forget their dreams.” – Paulo Coelho
