Favorite Quote:
“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
― William W. Purkey

I also like this quote by Gnarls Barkley:
"You are the best. You are the worst. You are average. Your love is a part of you. You try to give it away because you cannot bear its radiance, but you cannot separate it from yourself. To understand your fellow humans, you must understand why you give them your love. You must realize that hate is but a crime-ridden subdivision of love. You must reclaim what you never lost. You must take leave of your sanity, and yet be fully responsible for your actions." -Gnarls Barkley, in a letter to the legendary rock critic Lester Bangs

This statue is of St Vlodymyr (a 10th Century Ukrainian ruler, situated London. It has been turned into a shrine by the Local Ukrainian community as a tribute to people killed in recent protests in Kiev and the Crimea. The shrine of hundreds of candles, flowers and photographs of many people who've died was laid after a loud protest outside the Russian embassy for the end of violence and Russian interference in Ukraine.
