Audrey Hepburn in Charade
“I got to the stage where I simply hated the job I was in. I wanted to escape the world and not have to care about money. I left my job a few days ago and in a couple of weeks I’m off to Thailand to couchsurf and travel. I’m not sure how long the money will last, but I think this will be one of the happiest moments in my life.”
“When I was younger I was lured in to join an international prostitution ring with the promise of making a quick buck. My job involved me smuggling Nigerian woman into European countries where they were then sold for sex. As I should have expected, taking such a shortcut in earning a living brutally backfired on me. I lost all respect from the people I loved and I actually ended up losing the little money I had. I was at the lowest point of my life. After a while I turned my life around by turning to God and becoming a pastor. I now make an honest and respectable living and have a family with four kids who are doing incredibly well. Of course I regret what I used to do. But I don’t want to cover it up. I’d rather share my story so hopefully others can learn from it. Don’t take shortcuts in life. Sooner or later things will catch up to you.”

"The thing we need most is security. Without security, nothing works. We are only out here playing chess because right now, in this place, we have a little bit of security. But that’s just for right now— just this moment. In this country things have never been secure for long. In America, there is always security. And that’s why America works."
