If only I could find the faith I lost, so I could pray to her again.
You have a good mind, a pretty face, a disciplined body that does what you tell it. You have everything it takes to make a lovely woman, except the one essential — an understand heart. And without that, you might just as well be made of bronze.

He had a great sense of humor — real, true wit, was highly intelligent — an avid reader. A total professional who had no patience with self-indulgent actors. His face had everything in it — many lines, smiles, love, wickedness, sensitivity, wisdom. The sight of Spence was always an experience. If it was unexpected, it lifted my spirits, made me feel warm; if the meeting was planned, that day was invariably a better day than the one before.
