Joan of Arc came back as a little girl in Japan, and her father told her to stop listening to her imaginary friends.
Elvis was born again in a small village in Sudan, he died hungry, age 9, never knowing what a guitar was.
Michelangelo was drafted into the military at age 18 in Korea, he painted his face black with shoe polish and learned to kill.
Jackson Pollock got told to stop making a mess, somewhere in Russia.
Hemingway, to this day, writes DVD instruction manuals somewhere in China. He’s an old man on a factory line. You wouldn’t recognise him.
Gandhi was born to a wealthy stockbroker in New York. He never forgave the world after his father threw himself from his office window, on the 21st floor.
And everyone, somewhere, is someone, if we only give them a chance.

"Alexa Chung opened up to the audience about surviving a broken heart. (She’s still working on it).
“There are upsides to despair though,” she joked. “You can wear a blanket in public instead of a coat.”
The Brit it-girl shared the advice she received from her mother, friends–and Marianne Faithfull on getting over heartache. Of her Faithfull encounter, Chung explained: “It’s fashion week, and I’m wasted, because that’s what happens at fashion week: you get drunk and you watch alright collections and you’re like [clap, clap] that was amazing. Glug glug. So I’m drunk, and I go up to her and I say, ‘Marianne, how did you get over Mick Jagger?’”
Her response? “Darling, you can’t believe thelyrics.” Chung’s mother’s advice–that the best way to get over a man is to “get under another”–was a little more helpful."
