“My best quality? The transparency in my eyes. I only have to think a thought and it’s seen.

I have fame on the level of a Marilyn Monroe or an Elvis Presley, but part of the reason I didn’t go the way they did was because of my beliefs. People make judgments about Scientology, but often they don’t know what they’re talking about.”Quote by John Travolta
