"I meet somebody and they say to me: "Wow, you dance on Broadway! How fabulous! You got somewhere. You're something." And Christ, I get this feeling inside because I remember when I used to stand outside of that stage door and watch all these girls come out of there, with their eyelashes and their make-up and I'd think: "God I'll never be that old. I'll never be old enough to come out of that stage door." But deep down inside I knew I would, and goddamn it, I've come this far and I'm not giving up now." -A Chorus Line.
