My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Benjamin Constable
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Never say with eight words what you can say with nine. I don't really do mottos.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. When people don't do what they say.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. The adoration that I inadvertently give to people I wish to be considered equal to, then finding that some presume themselves to be superior. It makes me feel abused but I think I have been at least partly responsible.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. I admire all manner of historical and mythical figures but I don't particularly identify with any of them.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. Being nice as hell and a bit innocent.
