Only those who have patience to do simple things perfectly ever acquire the skill to do difficult things easily.
James J. Corbett

Insanity - a perfectly rational adjustment to an insane world.
R. D. Laing

Your life changes. Everything has to be done perfectly, and I didn't follow that. I lived my life as if I wasn't in the public eye. I thought, 'I'm young. I have the right to experience new things, and if I want to go to a bar and get drunk, that's my prerogative.'

The other baby is an impatient baby and cries lustily, screams and kicks and makes everybody unpleasant until it is fed. Well, we know perfectly well which baby is attended to first.
