    &ldquo;I&rsquo;ve worked in the circus my entire life. I studied to be a clown for many years. A great clown can make you see your own clumsiness. There are many famous clowns. Einstein was a clown. I always think of that famous picture of Einstein sticking out his tongue. That is a sign of extreme intelligence. Dumb people are always working on their serious face. They think a serious face will make them seem intelligent. But intelligent people don&rsquo;t need a serious face.&rdquo;<br><br>(Moscow, Russia) <br>

    &ldquo;There are always two little beautiful humans looking at me like I&rsquo;m the most important thing in the world. They copy everything I do, especially my son. I&rsquo;m very careful how I treat my wife because I know that&rsquo;s how he&rsquo;ll learn to treat women. I call my wife pet names, and my son started calling his sister those same names. Recently I picked flowers for my wife. And the next day he picked flowers for his sister.&rdquo; <br><br>(Moscow, Russia) <br>

    &ldquo;My father died in his sleep last year. Right after my birthday. I didn&rsquo;t have a good relationship with him. He left the family when I was ten. We had good moments but we were never really close. I wanted him to understand me. I wanted him to realize that I needed support, and love, and somebody to take care of me. I needed him to say &lsquo;I&rsquo;m sorry.&rsquo; But he never did. Whenever we talked, all he cared about was getting across his side of the story. And then he died. And now I have to forgive someone who can&rsquo;t say &lsquo;I&rsquo;m sorry.&rsquo; I feel like I&rsquo;m playing this game of chess. And I have to keep making moves, or nothing will ever change. Except that there&rsquo;s nobody sitting across from me anymore. And I can only guess the moves that he&rsquo;d make.&rdquo;<br><br>(St. Petersburg, Russia) <br>

    &ldquo;I&rsquo;m ninety but I feel like I&rsquo;m fifty. I don&rsquo;t take any medicine. I never complain. I&rsquo;m just happy to be alive. I tell people: &lsquo;Start with what you have, not with what you want.&rsquo; Every day I dance for two hours. And I&rsquo;m still really interesting too. I love politics and literature. I love the sciences. And I&rsquo;ve got a boyfriend named Alexander. We exchange books. I don&rsquo;t even know how old he is.&rdquo; <br><br>(Moscow, Russia) <br>

    &ldquo;We were together for nine years. I was completely dependent on him. He was a strong and powerful man and he expected obedience. If he called me at 4 AM, and told me to meet him in Moscow, I was expected to go to the train station. He had a very strong energy. It was hard to argue with him. In the beginning of the relationship, I obeyed because of the pressure. But then the pressure just became a habit. It got worse as time went on. Eventually he stopped listening to me completely. I became so lonely. When you&rsquo;re with someone who doesn&rsquo;t care about your views, and has no desire to understand you, it&rsquo;s worse than being alone. I still loved him though. I knew that he&rsquo;d had a hard life. I told myself that I had to make sacrifices to build a family. But one morning I woke up and decided that I couldn&rsquo;t do it anymore. If I stayed in the relationship, I would lose myself completely. I remember it was raining that morning. There was mud in the streets. And something told me: &lsquo;Today is the day.&rsquo; That was two years ago. I&rsquo;ve spent these last two years learning to be alone. I&rsquo;m realizing the things that I like to do. I feel better, I look better, and I&rsquo;ve been sharing more of myself with others. I feel like I&rsquo;m finally learning who I am.&rdquo; <br><br>(St. Petersburg, Russia) <br>

    &ldquo;I came here to meet a girl that I know from the Internet. She&rsquo;s coming all the way from Belarus. It&rsquo;s nothing sexual. Just a friendship. Her name is Olga. We&rsquo;ve known each other for seven years but this is the first time we&rsquo;re meeting in person. She&rsquo;s supported me through a lot of hard times. I get bullied a lot. People at my school often call me names and try to start fights with me. They send love letters to other guys in my name. Olga has comforted me a lot. She checks in with me throughout the day. She says things like: &lsquo;You don&rsquo;t deserve it.&rsquo; And &lsquo;Don&rsquo;t pay attention to them.&rsquo; Her messages have really helped me get through the last few years&ndash; even if they were just words on the Internet.&rdquo;(St. Petersburg, Russia)
