“I don’t know why I think this, but maybe I’ve got my best work ahead. Maybe I’ll be putting my teeth in the glass, and maybe it will be a very different kind of role, but I want to do something where I’m not driving a car or a truck, where it’s real. Something that people wouldn’t expect me to do. Probably a man in search of himself. But we’re always searching for ourselves anyway.” 

~ Burt Reynolds (1936 – 2018)

“There’ll be a load of compromisin’
On the road to my horizon
But I’m gonna be where the lights are shinin’ on me…” 

~ lyrics from Rhinestone Cowboy, sung by Glen Campbell (1936 – 2017)
