We've got this gift of
love, but love is like a precious plant.

You've got to really look after it and nurture it.

When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked
me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and
I told them they didn’t understand life.
