5. To be a star, you must shine your own light, follow
your own path and don't worry about the darkness for
that is when stars shine the brightest.

And here comes my favourite one.. Here's how it goes...!!

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Beer in one hand - a samosa in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming - WOO HOO! What a Ride!
