"When you feel you have so much to give and so much passion inside you, there is only one thing to do, and that’s go out and find it, fulfill it. If you have that rage to live, nothing is going to stop you from trying to satisfy it, and each time you fall in love anew or achieve a creative goal, you tell yourself, 'This is it! This is what I’ve been looking for!' But then you soon start to think, 'It’s not enough, I want more. I want perfection!'"

Gloria Vanderbilt, 
The Rainbow Comes and Goes, 2016
