For what do I respect myself? For not being afraid to search for myself, for not paying attention to criticism, gossip, ridicule. I was looking for myself, I could not live otherwise. I just can’t go to work biting my teeth and die there every day. There comes a time when we have to account for our talents. Now I’m not afraid of the day, now I can confidently meet the new morning.
Thanksgiving always lifts man from the earth, and thanksgiving to the universe is a moment of holiness in infinite space. By my works, I do not seek to amaze the world, by my works I constantly seek to amaze myself.
