Quote of the week

(the  faces on the picture are part of a construction in the water in Hagley Park. Water is sprayed against it which makes them go round)


I think when you’re an adult you start to like the very things that make you different. If you obsess about some defect, you make it obvious to everyone, and suddenly everyone is staring at just that defect. It’s always like that. The more you hide something, the more it shows. But when you accept your defect, suddenly no one on earth sees it anymore.
Audrey Tautou, in an interview in Allure magazine
