Inspired By Truman Show

If your life were a soap opera, how would the TRP's be??

From High fidelity

If you really wanted to mess me up,
you should have got to me earlier.

From Being John Malkovich

The way I see it, the world is divided into those go after what they want and those who don't. The passionate ones, the ones who go after what they want, may not get what they want, but they remain vital, in touch with themselves, and when they lie on their deathbeds, they have few regrets. The ones who don't go after what they want... well, who gives a shit about them anyway?
