Patience can be a good thing - but not necessarily. Sometimes it's not so bad to be impatient. I'm a little bit too polite.More Helen Mirren quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We're all idiots when we're young. We don't think we are, but we are. So we should be.More Helen Mirren quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I am not too keen on my nose, I don't like my knees, I hate my ankles, I am unsure about my behind, I don't like my legs at all. I am not too sure about my chin, my forehead is a bit dodgy. But, overall, I can live with it.More Helen Mirren quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When you're 16, you think 28 is so old! And then you get to 28 and it's fabulous. You think, then, what about 42? Ugh! And then 42 is great. As you reach each age, you gain the understanding you need to deal with it and enjoy it.More Helen Mirren quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I don't believe that if you do good, good things will happen. Everything is completely accidental and random. Sometimes bad things happen to very good people and sometimes good things happen to bad people. But at least if you try to do good things, then you're spending your time doing something worthwhile.More Helen Mirren quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
