These days, it's far more important to me that I'm part of a team which raises over $1 million a month for Aids. I'm much more proud of that, than that other old quote.

    • Linda: It was God who made me so beautiful. If I weren't, then I'd be a teacher.

    • Linda: I can do anything you want me to do so long as I don't have to speak.
