Favorite... “Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” -Steve Jobs

Story... I understood that everything is possible when I met Klaus Kinski in my living room (he was visiting a friend in Rome and rang the wrong door) short after watching Nosferatu and being fascinated by his acting. Then years later I had the chance to meet and talk to my musical hero, Bernard Sumner from New Order after a gig of the band and he told me his favorite movie of all time was Nosferatu with Klaus Kinski. Sincronicity is something really interesting, isn't it?
