Because they made me want to believe.Benjamin Alire Sáenz

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate. Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, And summer’s lease hath all too short a date.

So long as men can breathe or eyes can see, So ling lives this, and this gives life to thee.William Shakespeare
