Anarchy is the only slight glimmer of hope.
The Spice Girl Victoria Beckham has just published the story of her life. I confess that it is not in my reading table.
My secrets must be poetic to be believable.
Thank you for leaving us alone but giving us enough attention to boost our egos.
My mother has always been unhappy with what I do. She would rather I do something nicer, like be a bricklayer.
I don't really count myself as a very sophisticated businessperson. I'm a creative artist. All I know from business I've picked up along the way.

I got nasty habits; I take tea at three.

Anything worth doing is worth overdoing.
