Significant Quote

“At nineteen, I basically moved in to Eva’s house and I helped with different kinds of work around the house, and at the time, there was a saying: ‘Don’t trust anybody over thirty.’ And after a summer of meeting different people that, you know, came through Eva’s house from all over the world I realized that that was complete bunk.”
