I always loved people and things, and everything has value when it is loved. I don’t want to hear negative things, like the theatre is dying; culture is a waste of time; we no longer create talented artists. These comments say nothing about the truth of the world, and everything about the unhappiness of the person saying such things. I believe that things work out, and I believe that power comes from loving something, not from controlling it or demeaning it. We can repair anything with love.
