Personal Quote:

[on death] Well, it is the one universal truth, and our culture is so terrified of it. I work in Hollywood , where people routinely chop their faces in order to look younger and look like shiny, scary monsters. And everybody says, Well, that's just fine. Death and life are part of the same thing. See more »
