    Wow.

    I started reading the article because I generally love Ellen, and thought it would be nice to hear some quotes from her.
    After reading It sounds as though she is a very deep person.

    Really great quotes. They are really all so good. I think that I resonate the most with 26. Never saw Ellen as that spiritual, but I guess that in order to reach that level of success one must embrace his non-physical side as well.
