Pray look better, Sir... those things yonder are no giants, but windmills.

In America, they are paranoid about ruining the reputations of people once they are dead and cannot answer back. They have this fascination which to me seems cruel and morbid. I do not want any part of it.

In America the President reigns for four years, and Journalism governs forever and ever.
One makes mistakes; that is life. But it is never a mistake to have loved.
When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way.
Telling lies and showing off to get attention are mistakes I made that I don't want my kids to make.
