Personal Quote:

My father was very ill a couple of years ago and his body gave out on him for a while. When they wheeled him out of heart surgery I thought, my body works. My skin may have wrinkles but it's because I'm smiling so much. That might sound like some terrible American greetings card, but I feel it's immoral for me to castigate my body for getting older, when it does everything I ask of it. See more »

Trivia:
