"But that's the way the world is, James: if you don't look like you deserve that desk, you're not going to get that desk."
This quote came from a film called "Behind The Mask"  with Donald Sutherland [Kiefer Suthland's dad: "The Lost Boys" star]. The quote has always stuck in my mind. It speaks volumes about how the world works and where I'm coming from. It has to be the most meaningful quote I know.
Sometimes a line of a song will so hit home. This song by Cyndi Lauper, is about a girl who dies in a back street abortion. Topical, for you americans, but not the line I always notice when I play this.
The line that so impressed me was one that made me feel I could 'see it' was this:
"My heart began to skip to the beat. Of the boy next door."
