“It's a troublesome world. All the people who're in it
are troubled with troubles almost every minute.
You ought to be thankful, a whole heaping lot,
for the places and people you're lucky you're not.”
“Truly, I'm not joking when I thank my lucky stars for the awful operation I had, since it has made me young again and philosophical which means that I don't want to fritter away the new lease on life I've been given.”
“But I've been pretty lucky, the press have been very good to me but yes, there are certain instances when there is a high intrusion. But if you are in that position there are pros and cons to it. You have to take it with a pinch of salt and say 'this is part of the job'. Anything that does happen you have to say 'this is going to be gone by tomorrow', ... You just have to learn not to read it.”
