I am a voyager - and the voyage cannot mean that I stay at home.
Once I opened my eyes to the realities of life, I couldn't close them.
Beauty is not something you can count on. Usually, when people say you are beautiful, it is when there is a harmony between the inside and the outside.
Often, when you see yourself on the screen, you feel like a sweater that's been put through the washing machine. You have the impression of having done something full and luminous, and suddenly, when you see it on the screen, it's turned back into a tiny little thing.

I wouldn't say I was a rebel as such, but I certainly wasn't right at school.
