"What a sweet and wonderful thing life is. I remember a line I saw in a newspaper the other day — ‘Some people are so afraid to die that they never begin to live.’ And I want to live — I want to know everything and see everything. I want to travel and be happy all my life. I want to touch the stars." — Joan Crawford

When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You know that your name is safe in their mouth.

This desire to be together in order to not feel alone is an unfortunate symptom, in my opinion. Every person needs to learn from childhood how to be spend time with oneself. That doesn’t mean he should be lonely, but that he shouldn’t grow bored with himself because people who grow bored in their own company seem to me in danger, from a self-esteem point of view.
There is more to sex appeal than just measurements. I don’t need a bedroom to prove my womanliness. I can convey just as much sex appeal, picking apples off a tree or standing in the rain.
