"When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight."Peter Steele on Khalil Gibran

"If my world were to cave in tomorrow, I would look back on all the pleasures, excitements and worthwhilenesses I have been lucky enough to have had.

"Sadness is but a wall between two gardens."Peter Steele on Khalil Gibran

"I stay way from that area, and there's only so many songs you can write about love, sex and death."
