No man who has once heartily and wholly laughed can be altogether irreclaimably bad.

Jean de la Bruyere

As a small child in England, I had this dream of going to Africa. We didn't have any money and I was a girl, so everyone except my mother laughed at it. When I left school, there was no money for me to go to university, so I went to secretarial college and got a job.
