Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. I'm convinced it is a decision. I remember well the moment as a teenager when I firmly decided I was going to be happy. And although I have hurt as much as any normal person has hurt, usually because of my own mistakes, I have never forgotten that promise to myself.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?
