Q. What is your motto or maxim?

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. A life without dreams is a sky without stars, a spring without flowers, a mind without creativity. Dreams are not wishes, but life projects.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. There is no perfect happiness. Being happy is overcoming our neurotic need to always be right, recognizing our mistakes and having the courage to apologize; talking about our tears and teaching our children and students to learn to cry theirs. Being happy is making the small things spectacular in our eyes, making much of little. One who makes little of much is  miserable, and needs to purchase dreams of healthy emotion.
