Rainer Maria Rilke
That's a funny thing, fame. People definitely do treat you differently. When you begin to be successful, people say, 'Don't go changing.' Well, that's easy to say, but the fact is, you don't change at all - other people do.
Jonathan Rhys Meyers
I begin with the principle that all men are bores. Surely no one will prove himself so great a bore as to contradict me in this.

Like everyone else who makes the mistake of getting older, I begin each day with coffee and obituaries.

Lee R. Raymond

William Arthur Ward
Martin Luther King, Jr.
