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 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.

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. I would be a bird, who, even after suffering nocturnal tempests, in the morning rejoices jubilantly.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Life is beautiful and brief like dew drops. My biggest fear is not living it intensely in this short existential trajectory.

Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

A. Humility, the ability to put yourself in someone else's shoes, and the ability to see the same problem from multiple angles.
