”[…] When I decide to do something, I try to do it as well as I can. I go to great lengths. It was the same thing when I stopped everything to devote myself to animal welfare: I threw myself heart and soul into it, without knowing a thing about it, without even knowing how I was going to go about it. And look where I am now. It’s fantastic, what I’ve been able to do with the Foundation. People laughed at me. They’ve said and written all sorts of rubbish. They said I was doing it to get in the news. As if. None of that has the slightest importance. And it never stopped me from fighting for what I believe in, or from being upstanding, alive, and proud.”  (x)
