Personal Quote:

I am puritan at heart, very much so - probably a self-preservation instinct or something like that. I'm hopelessly strait-laced. I've never drunk alcohol or smoked or took drugs. I've always been a bit of an outsider. That's why it's been easier for me to survive than for some others. See more »
