Edith Piaf // "I always thought my days spent in darkness as a child gave me a very special sensitivity. Much later, when I really wanted to hear, really 'see' a song, I'd close my eyes. And when I wanted to bring it out of the very depths of myself, out of my guts, out of my belly, when the song had to come from far away, I'd close my eyes."
