Be as smart as you can, but remember that it is always better to be wise than to be smart.
When I was in high school, I fell under the spell of that crazy idea that if you're interested in the arts, you can't be interested in science.
What I can't completely understand is most other people's fascination with what the famous among us do with their lips and the rest of their bodies. Why do ordinary people become the target of this curiosity simply by virtue of the fact that other people recognise their names and faces but know almost nothing else about them?
I used to not want to die in any way but in my sleep when I was a young man. I'd like to die awake now, if possible, with people around me who love me.
