Quotations
"The American Dream: A white picket fence, 2.4 kids, and a nice puppy dog? No! The American Dream is that each one of us gets our own dream. Big dreams. Small dreams. Crazy dreams. But here's the thing: It's not just about where your dreams take you; it's about where you take your dreams." -Dennis Hopper commercial1
