My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Each human being must learn to be the author of his own story: no one is free in the world at large without first being free within. He who wins without risk triumphs without glory.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. Being passionate about people and considering every human being a live star on the stage of existence.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. There is no perfect happiness. Being happy is overcoming our neurotic need to always be right, recognizing our mistakes and having the courage to apologize; talking about our tears and teaching our children and students to learn to cry theirs. Being happy is making the small things spectacular in our eyes, making much of little. One who makes little of much is  miserable, and needs to purchase dreams of healthy emotion.

 

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. I have several defects. Perhaps the biggest one is not expending more time being a friend of God, to understand the One who is hidden behind the veil of time and space.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. Recognizing that I am just a human being, and even though I have millions of readers I will never give importance to the cult of celebrity, because that is a symptom of a sick society.
