STUFF
Did I mention this before? I was just thinking about this, again. It has preoccupied my mind quite a bit. In "Monsieur Ibrahim", Omar Sharif had a lot of good lines that made you think. The one I keep remembeing is this -- it's not an exact quote: "If you keep it inside, it's lost forever." Think about that. All that you and I hold inside will be lost forever if we don't talk about it, if we don't show it, express it, share it. Think about it. Once you and I leave this world, everything we know is lost forever. There's no greater loss. -- J. Javid
