Had my grandparents not emigrated when they did, I might have been born Jewish in Eastern Europe during World War II, or I might not have been born at all. Instead, I was born in 1942 in New York City. – Carole King who celebrates her 75th birthday today.
She also said:
Everybody understands friendship, and friendship is different than love – it’s a different kind of love. Friendship has more freedom, more latitude. You don’t expect your friend to be as you think your friend should be; you expect your friend just to love you as a friend.
I still believe that everyone is beautiful in some way and by seeing the beauty in others we make ourselves more beautiful.
Once the inspiration comes, that directs where the perspiration goes.
