Explanation

Neil Gaiman is a science fiction and fantasy author who came to fame for writing the comic book series The Sandman about the anthropomorphic personification of dreams. The quote written in the circles in the comic comes from that series.

Transcript

[Pieces of a quote in circles with lines drawn in between them]
[Some of the circles are small and colored]
"Everybody has a secret world inside of them.
All of the people in the whole world
I mean everybody
No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside
Inside they've all got unimaginable
magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing, worlds
Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands, maybe."
--Neil Gaiman
Sandman
