I believe that singing is the key to long life, a good figure, a stable temperament, increased intelligence, new friends, super self-confidence, heightened sexual attractiveness and a better sense of humor.

p.s. I went to the opera last night to see my old bananas friend Draculette play "Tosca" in (surprise!) Tosca. And I loved it! I loved it so much. At the end (11:05) I was exhausted but so happy, strolling with SarahB across the plaza on a dark November's eve, and I could actually feel something old and dear and nearly forgotten step back inside my body.

October light has more time in it than any other. The day says "Late" with its light, as summer mornings say "Early" with theirs.

Glamour is very different than beauty. Beauty, to me, is a structural, physical thing that I don’t feel I have. The rules are much stricter. Glamour is a much more inclusive and embracing thing that every woman can take part in. It doesn’t have to be vaudeville, but it’s how a certain spirit shows through, how you put yourself together, and the little touches you do. Glamour doesn’t rely on how big or small your budget is, either. It’s just showing little signs of exuberance, whatever that means to you. Madeleine Albright may not be a structural beauty, but I think she’s really glamorous. She loves brooches, and has a whole collection of these amazing statement pins that she wears for different occasions. That’s what I mean about glamour: it’s exuberance. Most people would look at me like, ‘Are you insane? Madeleine Albright’s glamorous?’ I absolutely think she is because she’s doing the best with herself. That’s glamour to me.

Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It’s round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you’ve got about a hundred years here. There’s only one rule that I know of, babies — God damn it, you’ve got to be kind.
