you'll have stars that can laugh!

"people have stars, but they aren't the same. for travelers, the stars are guides. for other people, they're nothing but tiny lights. and for still others, for scholars, they're problems. for my businessman, they were gold. but all those stars are silent stars. you, though, you'll have stars like nobody else."

"what do you mean?"

"when you look up at the sky at night, since i'll be living on one of them, since i'll be laughing on one of them, for you, it'll be as if all the stars are laughing. you'll have stars that can laugh!"

and he laughed again.
