Очень люблю театры. Театр – это уникальная возможность прожить жизнь героя, попасть в необычную ситуацию, любить и мизантропию. Театр на время отключает меня от реальности, повседневных забот и проблем, но при этом дает возможность извлечь уроки для собственной жизни.

Любовь и деньги нельзя смешивать. Если мыслить в такой категории, то возможна лишь любовь к деньгам, что помогает в достижении целей, но в таком случае есть обратная сторона – можно потерять настоящую любовь.

Ничто так не сводит людей с ума, как власть. Власть развращает. Абсолютная власть развращает абсолютно (с) Джон Дальберг-Актон

Интеллигент это тот, кто мало говорит и много делает.

Если ты не умеешь использовать минуту, то тебе не хватит времени на всю жизнь.

Мы всегда стремимся в будущее или ищем что-то в прошлом. В прошлое нужно возвращаться, чтобы анализировать свои ошибки, уметь признавать их и не допускать в будущем.

Мое любимое слово — это вовремя сказанные слова поддержки.
