"i learned then that happiness is not smiling or having money or being in good health, although those are conditions worth having. happiness really is only living, taking life on its own terms. i'm passionately involved in life: i love its change, its color, its movement. to be alive, to be able to speak, to see, to walk, to have houses, music, paintings, it's all a miracle. i have adopted the technique of living life from miracle to miracle."
