"It's always by demonstrating the happiness we bring to others that we become interesting." or "Some people had hundreds of colors at their disposal and only knew how to use three or four to make tags or scribbles in their lives, and others who only had ugly clay under their feet , knew how to transform it from their talented fingers into a sublime work of art, worthy of appearing in the greatest museums. " This book, which reads with a constant smile on the lips, will give the heart balm to all thirties. They will find with delight references of their young years ... as well as experiences tempted by all the girls in search of prince charming.
