"The things that we think are the problems can be the gifts. One of the advantages I have is that my spine was paralyzed when I was a child. So I have that sense of not moving, underneath movement. It's not a gift at the moment, but it can be. One of my philosophies is, "Don't waste the suffering". We do suffer. The reality is we do. All is not suffering but we all suffer and not to waste it."
