    Many people have idols that they look up to, or they want to be like. Some people have famous people as their role models, others have close family members. Many times you’ll see people quote their famous saying by their idol, simply because they like the saying or it speaks the truth.

But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you

    "I want to grow old without face-lifts; I want to have the courage to be loyal to the face I have made. Sometimes I think it would be easier to avoid old age, to die young, but then you would never complete your whole life, would you? You would never wholly know yourself."
