What is more painful: walking all your life, or trying to fly? Flying can get you hurt, but maybe, it’s not as hard as they told you anyway.”
This book currently has a 4.88 rating on Goodreads, with 8 reviews. So, it’s obviously got a fan base. However, the star never focused his time on writing literature anymore. Instead, he fell in love and the rest became history.
