Girls blush, sometimes, because they are alive, half wishing they were dead to save the shame. The sudden blush devours them, neck and brow; They have drawn too near the fire of life, like gnats, and flare up bodily, wings and all. What then? Who’s sorry for a gnat or girl?

You’ll be sitting there not wishing to get onto a stage again for maybe two, three, four, five months, or maybe a year, then suddenly you’ll wake up and feel like you’ve got to do it again. It’s in the blood, and I never say never.
