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’s your greatest fear?
A. Life is beautiful and brief like dew drops. My biggest fear is not living it intensely in this short existential trajectory.
Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?
A. I would be a bird, who, even after suffering nocturnal tempests, in the morning rejoices jubilantly.
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 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.
