Personal Quotes 

People think of the geisha as a prostitute, because prostitutes started wearing white makeup and silk kimonos and calling themselves geishas, and the line became blurred. But the actual word means 'artist.' Yes, they entertain men. But, more important, they're great dancers and musicians and great conversationalists. They were also the fashionistas of their time. They were like supermodels.
Maybe it took a little time, or we're a little late, but finally we're recognizing that international stars are fantastic. They're the greatest actors in the world, and few people know that.
