He's walked on worlds the size of a thumb-print... and worlds made of water that broke at his touch into a thousand glistening droplets. Starts that scream and stars that sing and stars that think. He knows them all. We dream that we may someday catch a falling star... he's done it. Does that answer your question? Quote2
