"I have a memory of a lovely lady who took me by the hand — the one that was free, the other one holding the Oscar — and said: "You are in shock right now, and you will not ever remember meeting me, but just trust me, I lead you out of here.” And she did. Like, right backstage, one step off, there she was, taking my hand, and saying, “You will not remember me, trust me.” And she was totally wrong, because that’s the thing I remember the best." [x]
You wrote to me once, listing the four chief virtues: Wisdom, justice, fortitude and temperance. As I read the list, I knew I had none of them. But I have other virtues, father. Ambition. That can be a virtue when it drives us to excel. Resourcefulness, courage, perhaps not on the battlefield, but… there are many forms of courage. Devotion, to my family and to you. But none of my virtues were on your list. Even then it was as if you didn’t want me for your son.
