Where do I stand today? I believe in kindness as a common denominator of all human beings. They may acquire only minute traces of this kindness, hidden deep under rocks of bitterness, disappointment, discouragement. But this kindness exists in everyone. I have lived in many countries. I have lived on two continents. I’m addicted to people. I indulge myself in seeing them, in speaking to them, in knowing them. Since I can remember, I’ve been eager to mix with people.
