British actor Stephen Fry talks about the value of being vulnerable...
"When I was a teenager, and riddled with all the insecurities that teenagers naturally have - especially being gay in my generation was quite a scary thing to imagine being, that my life might well be one of illegal horror and blackmail and just general misery... and you think you're the only person who feels that. And what you yearn is for a writer, or a songwriter - it could be Leonard Cohen, or Morrissey form the Smiths - somebody who touches you and says, 'I'm with you; you're not alone.'"
"We all think everybody else has got a big club, while we've got a tiny Q-Tip behind us... and we all think we've missed out on the secrets of life, and everybody else has got it.... But the wonderful secret is that we're all equally afraid and uncertain, and that, that isn't a bad thing; it's a wonderful thing."
