I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
If my world were to cave in tomorrow, I would look back on all the pleasures, excitements and worthwhilenesses I have been lucky enough to have had. Not the sadness, not my miscarriages or my father leaving home, but the joy of everything else. It will have been enough.
I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it's the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It's probably the most important thing in a person.
Harold S. Geneen
