"When I was 19, my girlfriend and I were going to study in Paris. Our boyfriends came to the docks to see us off. Right as we were getting on the ship, my friend’s boyfriend said to her: ‘If you go, I won’t wait for you.’ So she turned around and decided to stay. My fiance saw this and told me: ‘I won’t wait for you either.’
I said: ‘Don’t!’”
"I’m around eighty years old. I’m not going to say exactly how old because my friends might see this. But the important thing is to keep moving! I just got back from Carnegie Hall, and yesterday I swam a quarter mile. But that’s nothing. Two years ago I was in Syria when Egypt blew up."
"I have a Tanzanian friend who is a little embarrassed to wear her native clothing. I was looking in her closet one day and I said: ‘Whoa! Can I have these?’"
She was collecting rocks.
I asked what he wanted to be when he grew up.
He screamed: “A benny!”
"What’s a benny?" I asked.
"That’s his name," said his mom.
"If you could give one piece of advice to other kids, what would it be?"
"God is real and he can do miracles."
