Arthur Salm
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "It doesn't matter how long you put it off as long as you get it done on time."

Q. What do you regret most?

A. Not taking these questions seriously.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. Admitting that I don't admit that I have flaws.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. Not admitting that I have flaws.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Being exactly where I want to be, doing exactly what I want to be doing, with exactly the people I want to be with. Right now, for example, I'm perfectly happy because I'm writing something (this!), my cat is on my lap (instead of on the keyboard), and my dog is lying next to me (and not snoring). But in order to be perfectly happy in about half an hour I'll have to be eating lunch.
