Love, what is love? I don't think you can really put it into words. Love is understanding someone, caring for him, sharing his joys and sorrows.

Paper has more patience than people.

I don't think of all the misery but of the beauty that still remains.

I want to see the world and do all kinds of exciting things, and a little money won't hurt.

There's a destructive urge in people, the urge to rage, murder and kill.
