If the critics are right that I’ve made all my decisions based on polls, then I must not be very good at reading them.
I wasn’t in school often enough to really belong to a ‘clique,’ but my friends all studied hard and got pretty good grades. They were good people with self-respect. I still like to be friends with people I admire something about I really believe that we become like the people we’re surrounded by, so I choose my friends carefully!
I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall.
And above all things, never think that you’re not good enough yourself. A man should never think that. My belief is that in life people will take you at your own reckoning.
