Acting is invigorating. But I don't analyse it too much. It's like a dog smelling where it's going to do its toilet in the morning.
Life is an adventure in forgiveness.
It is more shameful to distrust our friends than to be deceived by them.
Fear of death makes us devoid both of valour and religion. For want of valour is want of religious faith.
Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.
I turned to music originally because of my past and needing a release or an outlet to get out anger or frustration or hurt.
Fame will go by and, so long, I've had you, fame. If it goes by, I've always known it was fickle. So at least it's something I experience, but that's not where I live.
