„I had been taking Prevacid for about four years and my body built up a resistance to it, to the point where it wasn't doing anything anymore...

That, coupled with a show where I had monitor problems, and I pretty much trashed my voice.“

— Khalil Gibran Lebanese artist, poet, and writer 1883 - 1931
Context: Say not, "I have found the path of the soul." Say rather, "I have found the soul walking upon my path." For the soul walks upon all paths. The soul walks not upon a line, neither does it grow like a reed. The soul unfolds itself, like a lotus of countless petals.
