Quote by Heidi Klum
It's not like I'm this glamour diva who hands everything over and I just sit on my throne at home.
In this quote, the speaker highlights that they are not someone who expects everything to be handed to them effortlessly. They distance themselves from the image of a glamorous person who simply waits for things to be given to them. Instead, they suggest that they are an active individual who is involved in their own life rather than being complacent or entitled.
Every age, every culture, every custom and tradition has its own character, its own weakness and its own strength, its beauties and cruelties; it accepts certain sufferings as matters of course, puts up patiently with certain evils. Human life is reduced to real suffering, to hell, only when two ages, two cultures and religions overlap.
No sooner does a great man depart, and leave his character as public property, than a crowd of little men rushes towards it. There they are gathered together, blinking up to it with such vision as they have, scanning it from afar, hovering round it this way and that, each cunningly endeavoring, by all arts, to catch some reflex of it in the little mirror of himself.
