Ayumi Hamasaki quotes

  • I don't have dreams. How can I say it? I myself am a dream.
    -- Ayumi Hamasaki

    #Dream

  • I do what I love to do at the moment. If I wake up tomorrow and decide I want to dance, that's what I'd do. Or design clothes. I think I'd throw myself into whatever I'm doing now. It's not about abandoning what I was doing before, or giving up. It's about knowing that if I die tomorrow, I lived the way I wanted to.
