  • I've been lucky enough to keep going and I realise now, though it's taken me nearly 100 years, that my voice is distinctive. I'm very lucky indeed.
  • I had another friend who lived nearby and with him I had my one and only homosexual feeling. It lasted for only a few days. But it never came back, I am glad to say, and from that time on I have been what you might call 'normal'.
