Live life fully while you're here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You're going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don't try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human.
No foundation that I am aware of has hired ex-journalists to promote a thoroughgoing inquiry.
It's a very big mental game, all day leading up to warm-ups. You're not sure if your curveball will break, or will you be able to throw it over the plate? It's all negative thoughts going into the game.
If you think life is in control, you're not going fast enough.
Mario Andretti said: ‘If everything seems under control you’re not going fast enough.

The media wants overnight successes (so they have someone to tear down). Ignore them. Ignore the early adopter critics that never have enough to play with. Ignore your investors that want proven tactics and predictable instant results. Listen instead to your real customers, to your vision and make something for the long haul. Because that’s how long it’s going to take, guys.
In the future I think the labels on most pop music are going to go. Everyone keeps jumping into everyone else's space.
Use your faults, use your defects; then you're going to be a star.
To confront those fears, in a controlled environment, where there's 300 people around you going through the same thing, it's this weird sort of yin and yang.
I was born to be a spinster, and, by God, I'm going to spin.
I'd rather be onstage with a pig - a duet with Jennifer Lopez and me just ain't going to happen.
Whatever you're going through in your life, don't ever give up.
A lot of actors look at scripts and think, 'How will this stretch me as an actor?' But I always thought, 'Do I want to turn the page? Is this going to make people laugh?'
There were various turning points, but the main one at the beginning was that I was going off to do another degree in the history of art. I would have ended up as some art historian at Sotheby's or something.
I have this absurd syndrome where I get these out-of-the-blue, pathetic panic attacks. It'll be in a very easy, simple scene when everything is going swimmingly, and then suddenly, bang, I'm shvitzing and can't remember my lines.
I'm not going to launch a bikini business and then give up bikinis, am I?
No, we’re not going to give you any love. It was a terrible audition.
There is as much chance of you being a pop star or a rock star as me flying to the moon tomorrow morning for breakfast. It’s never going to happen.
The lesson that people can't give me what they don't have, and if there's anything I took from it, it was: okay, I don't really expect anyone to hand me anything. There's going to be me and the world.
If I want to be a loving, generous, giving person, I'm not going to test the waters. I'm simply going to be a loving, generous, giving person.
I know I am a good professional. I know no one’s harder on me than myself and that’s not going to change under any circumstances.
When you have talent and if you don’t work the talent then you are not going to win nothing.
