... forgetting's not something you do, it happens to you.
'Don't you know that there are times when every man is attractive?'
You must make, always. You must act, if you believe something. Talking about acting is like boasting about pictures you're going to paint. The most terrible bad form.
You're young ... You should be blind to failure. At your age. Then he said, don't try to be our age. I shall despise you if you do.
A strange thought: I would not want this not to have happened ... It's like firing a pot. You have to risk the cracking and the warping.
