Personal Quotes 

1. A London editor once told me that the best way to put news hounds off your scent is to lie inventively

2. The closest I feel to is Dustin Hoffman who shares many of my paradoxes. Physical appearance to begin with.

3. I haven't got a degree. So, I've never stopped learning. When you get a degree and wear that square hat with tassels on it, you think you've done it and you lean back. There is a certain amount of complacency that comes with achievement. What you perceive is an achievement. When you don't, when you are insecure all the time, that's when you constantly forage for knowledge in the extra-mural dump.

4. Strangely, one of the greatest rationalists of this world has been turned into a god: Buddha.
