Caine started the next millennium with the drama film, ‘Quills’, which was a huge hit at the box office. It was followed by many more hit films such as ‘Miss Congeniality’, ‘Last Orders’, ‘The Quiet American, ‘Secondhand Lions’, “Around the Bend’, and ‘The Dark Knight’.

“You cannot have one bathroom. And it doesn’t matter how much you love your wife and everything, ’cause you wind up with no room at all. You just get a little corner and you’ve got a toothbrush and your paste and a shaving brush and a razor. And you can never get in there. So you must have two bathrooms. You really must. I think it’s essential.” – Michael Caine
“My mother had heard all about miniskirts but had never seen one so I took her for lunch at Alvaro’s [in Chelsea]. We walked down the King’s Road and waited 10 seconds for our first miniskirt and a girl came along with her skirt tucked round her arse. I said: ‘What do you think, ma?’ And she said: ‘If it’s not for sale, you shouldn’t put it in the window!” – Michael Caine

1. Only Buy What You Can Afford
This is a lesson I have drilled into my daughter’s head. If you don’t have the money for it, don’t stick your neck out and pile up debt. There is peace in not having debt. Less is truly more. An uncluttered home is a haven of peace.
2. Be Courteous
Saying, “thank you” and “please” is not over rated. Being courteous make you and the other person feel better!
3. Respect Goes a Long Way
You don’t have to agree with everything, but respecting the differences in people and cultures brings peace to the whole world. Everyone has the right to make their own choices. Respect them because aren’t most people just trying to be happy and make the best choices possible in their life?
