Happy Birthday To Me

"That kind of crying, deep into a pillow, does not happen after we are twenty-one." -Daphne Du Maurier, Rebecca

    "I'm still dealing with the 21-year-old me. That idealist, that purist, that young, noble, and somewhat foolish guy... So I tell them to try to hold on to the way they feel right now. Because that's going to effect them for the rest of their lives."
    Billy Joel

    Prince William
