Who put an advert in a magazine

You don't know what love means
Well, let me tell you“

A lot of people have said that. And personally, I watched him. I wish him the best of luck.“

„I saw a lady on T. V. She was born without arms. Literally, she was born with her hands attached to her shoulders… and that was sad, but then they said "Lola does not know the meaning of the word 'can't.'"
