There's always pressure, from other people and yourself. If you're happy with the looks you're born with, then what are you going to do your whole life?. We keep thinking up new things and finding better ways of doing things because we're not happy with what we're given.
My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it.
As long as your going to be thinking anyway, think big.
I am not one of the great composers. All the great have produced enormously. There is everything in their work - the best and the worst, but there is always quantity. But I have written relatively little.
Mankind is made great or little by its own will.
I like someone who is a little crazy but coming from a good place. I think scars are sexy because it means you made a mistake that led to a mess.
I think it's great if a guy has a good sized package.

Nobody thinks of themselves as sexy, really. Some days you go, 'Hey, I'm not going too bad today.' But if you try and be sexy, you'll never be sexy.
There is no such thing as a little country. The greatness of a people is no more determined by their numbers than the greatness of a man is by his height.
Since I was a little child, my nose - I think it's too big.
People are going to say what they want to say and think what they want to think, and I can't change their minds.
I think a film set is a quite controlled environment and you feel like you can trust them and it is going to be a safe place to work, but I really don't think about it.

Read a little. Meditate more. Think of God all the time.
I like thinking big. If you're going to be thinking anything, you might as well think big.
