"When you’re a teenager, you sing about your car, your girlfriend or your shoes. And now you’re speaking about mortality. I think the best art does that. All the best operas are about death. But not to be morbid - I’m not a morbid person. I think, if anything, acceptance of it enriches your life. You realize that there are a limited number of days, so make use of them."
