I used to be very self-conscious. I used to wish I was pretty. My cousin Georgia always taught me that if you smile, people will like you. Sometimes people will say something you don’t like, and you get angry a bit, but you just smile. You let it go by, even if you really would like to choke ’em.

It is the sorrow inherent in the human condition, the price we must pay for being sentient and self-conscious organisms, aspirants to liberation, but subject to the laws of nature and under orders to keep on marching, through irreversible time, through a world wholly indifferent to our well-being, toward decrepitude and the certainty of death. The remaining two thirds of all sorrow is homemade and, so far as the universe is concerned, unnecessary.

We will not make the mistake that both rigid modernists and conservatives make, of confusing the quality of form with the specific forms themselves.
I don’t go out of my way to get noticed. When I’m in Scotland it’s tough, because loads of people come up to me. They’re always really polite. It’s nice, it’s fun and good to speak to people who aren’t involved in tennis, but some have this habit of just staring at me and that makes me really self-conscious. I’d rather they came up and said hello.
