LIFE OF A GYPSY

It is impossible to find a more complete fusion with nature than that of a Gypsy [FRANZ LISZT]… where you hear murmurs of water, whispers of wind and fire, children laughs, midnight dancing and mixing of fabrics and flowing materials.

I’ve always seen myself as one of those “show people”. My first memories are wanting and needing to entertain people, like a gypsy traveller, who goes from place to place, city to city, performing for audiences and reaching people. [BRITTANY MURPHY]

Luckily, I was raised by a kind of gypsy family, which is why I always get along better with people who worked in circuses than with kids of other actors. My mom was so carefree with us in a beautiful way. We were used to sleeping anywhere. [LOU DOILLON]
