It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart.
I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: Oh Lord, make my enemies ridiculous. And God granted it.
