If only one could tell true love from false love as one can tell mushrooms from toadstools.
I always felt that the great high privilege, relief and comfort of friendship was that one had to explain nothing.
Could we change our attitude, we should not only see life differently, but life itself would come to be different.
When I was younger, my whole sense of self-worth was based on whether or not I was working, which was awful. And I had a baby at 20 years old, so it wasn't just about me. At around the age of 30 there was a stretch where I wasn't working - certainly not on anything I liked, anyway - and I started to do other things.
