Personal Quote:

[on being beaten in school, specifically in math class] - I feared being beaten, and I was beaten very regularly. It did affect my sense of myself.

... I didn't feel that I suffered at the time. I just felt it was the way of the world. It took many years to come to terms with and to forgive those incidents that I felt had deeply hurt me. See more »

Trivia:

Cites Federico Fellini's Amarcord (1973) as one of his all-time favorite movies. See more »
