My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Each human being must learn to be the author of his own story: no one is free in the world at large without first being free within. He who wins without risk triumphs without glory.
Q. What is your greatest achievement?
A. Recognizing that I am just a human being, and even though I have millions of readers I will never give importance to the cult of celebrity, because that is a symptom of a sick society.
Q. What’s your greatest flaw?
A. I have several defects. Perhaps the biggest one is not expending more time being a friend of God, to understand the One who is hidden behind the veil of time and space.
Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?
A. Thinking about death. I think it puts an end to a fascinating life. On the other hand, I take comfort in thinking that life is a grand text, and death is just a comma, because the text is still being written in eternity.
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. Being a gardener, tending the flowers, making them spectacular to my eyes.
