We’re so trendy we can’t even escape ourselves.
My first movie was this independent that I did on the Erie Canal in 1995, called Erie, that I don’t know if you could even get, actually with Felicity Huffman.

Things don’t always go your way in football: there are always good and bad times.

Consistency of performance is essential. You don’t have to be exceptional every week but as a minimum you need to be at a level that even on a bad day you get points on the board.
Everything is political. I will never be a politician or even think political. Me just deal with life and nature. That is the greatest thing to me.
Time travel and teleportation will have to wait. It may take centuries to master these technology.

Remember even though the outside world might be raining, if you keep on smiling the sun will soon show its face and smile back at you.
Willingness to change is a strength, even if it means plunging part of the company into total confusion for a while.

Even if you fall on your face, you’re still moving forward.
One must not cheat anyone, not even the world of its victory.

I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let’s face it, friends make life a lot more fun.
It is surprising to notice that even from the earliest age, man finds the greatest satisfaction in feeling independent. The exalting feeling of being sufficient to oneself comes as a revelation.

The rainbow is a part of nature, and you have to be in the right place to see it. It’s beautiful, all of the colors, even the colors you can’t see. That really fit us as a people because we are all of the colors. Our sexuality is all of the colors. We are all the genders, races, and ages.
There’s an examination for young people to go to university. I failed it three times. I failed a lot. So I applied to 30 different jobs and got rejected.
