  2. We're nothing if we're not loved. When you meet somebody who is more important to you than yourself, that has to be the most important thing in life, really. And I think we are all striving for it in different ways. I also believe very, very strongly that everybody is the hero/heroine of his/her own life.

  3. I look placid, you see, that's why people think I'm fine. Inside I worry a lot.
  4. The whole art of life is knowing the right time to say things.
