"I saw the things that I love in this world. The work and the food and the time to sit and smoke. And I looked at the pen and I thought, what the hell am I grabbing this for? Why am I trying to become what I don't want to be... when all I want is out there, waiting for me there minute I say I know who I am." by Biff Loman
