A book is a version of the world. If you do not like it, ignore it; or offer your own version in return.
Actually, I don't even like parties. I would much prefer a room with four friends who sit around and have dinner. I detest nightclubs. And I don't like places where the noise is so loud you can't talk to people.
One of the things I've learnt is not to depend on there being a woman in your life to make it work. I love my work, I love my children, I've got wonderful friends, you know, I have a nice life.
Broad-mindedness is related to tolerance; open-mindedness is the sibling of peace.
