In those days I was new to covers; merely felt pleased that a story of mine had been honored. I later met Rogers who did some of my early covers and I was impressed with him.
America is full of readers of all different sorts who love books in many different ways, and I keep meeting them. And I think editors should look after them, and make less effort to please people who don't actually like books.
I think sports and bodybuilding were the only things that saved me from getting beat up. People are not pleased, for whatever reason, when you can answer all the questions in class. If not for the respect I got from track, cross-country, wrestling and bodybuilding, it would have been a disaster.
I've always been a people pleaser.
The most important people to please are your family.
More than anything else it pleases me to know I've made people back home in Bihar proud of me.
One advantage of not being in power is that we can dream of reshaping the world exactly as we please.
If you study the Talmud you please God even more than you do by praying or fasting.
Please, believe in yourself!
I am much pleased to find how very well I stand work & how my powers of attention & continued effort increase.
