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 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. 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.
