Personal Quote:

The whole of my career, such as it has been, has been an attempt to explore and enlarge whatever natural gifts I may have, and by the day-to-day practice of those natural gifts, to try to expand and polish them. I like investigating and, if possible, creating, or least examining, all sorts of human characteristics. To that extent, my favorite role is always the next one. See more »
