“My friends, as I have discovered myself, there are no disasters, only opportunities. And, indeed, opportunities for fresh disasters.”
“My policy on cake is pro having it and pro eating it.”
“It is easy to make promises - it is hard work to keep them.”
“If we judged everybody by the stupid, unguarded things they blurt out to their nearest and dearest, then we wouldn't ever get anywhere.”
“I'm not one of those people who believe in going endlessly around finger wagging and ticking people off for occasional colourful use of language.”
“I do think human beings cannot be faulted for wishing to judge themselves and their lives and their achievements by others around them; that is a natural human feeling.”
“There is absolutely no one, apart from yourself, who can prevent you, in the middle of the night, from sneaking down to tidy up the edges of that hunk of cheese at the back of the fridge.”
“I advise you all very strongly - go
for a run, get some exercise, and have a beautiful day.”
