During most of my life, my contact with Jews and Judaism was slight. I gave little thought to their problems, save in asking myself, from time to time, whether we were showing by our lives due appreciation of the opportunities which this hospitable country affords. My approach to Zionism was through Americanism.
I have known plenty of people who, in their later years, had the energy of children and the kind of curiosity and fascination with things like little children. I think we can keep that, and I think it’s important to keep that part of staying young. But I also think it’s great fun growing old.

I’m an imperfect person. I’ve let anger, jealousy, all the emotions, get the best of me.

I’m very focused on the things I do and have learned not to be pressured.

I was a late bloomer, but I had a career as a contemporary dancer before that, so I had some kind of connection to this world.

Life is a lot more interesting if you are interested in the people and the places around you.
