movie excerpt

I know you want to sing.
See. I love to sing.
Nothing makes me happier.
I either wanted to be a singer
or the head of the Ice Capades.
Hey. Do you know who
the Ice Capades are?
Don't roll your eyes.
They were very cool.
I went to my mother.
who gave me this book...
called Letters To A Young Poet.
Rainer Maria Rilke
He's a fabulous writer. A fellow
used to write to him and say:
"I want to be a writer.
Please read my stuff."
And Rilke says
to this guy:
"Don't ask me
about being a writer.
lf. When you wake up in the morning.
you can think of nothing but writing...
then you're a writer."
I'm gonna say
the same thing to you.
If you wake up in the mornin'
and you can't think of anything
but singin' first...
then you're supposed to be
a singer, Girl.

What's the point of your story. Sister?

l... What's the point?
Read the book.
And don't roll your eyes about the
Ice Capades. It was a very good living.
I just want
to point that out.

[from the film: 'Sister Act 2: Back In The Habit']
