I'm lucky. The best possible place in the world for training is Addis Ababa, so I am home all the time except when I am racing. I like to be there, near my family, my kids, also the real estate business I run with my wife.
I feel like I haven't done my best work yet. I feel like there's a world of possibilities out there.
I always like to reveal the fact that the emperor has no clothes. And children are best at that. They teach us how to see the world in that sense. They are without artifice; they see it for what it is. I am drawn to that ruthless honesty.
That is a Medieval way of drawing history, in which they do not respect the law and want the rest of the world to respect the law. That's not possible.
A warrior is a hunter. He calculates everything. That's control. Once his calculations are over, he acts. He lets go. That's abandon. A warrior is not a leaf at the mercy of the wind.

To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;

To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.

Within the sacred precints the profane is transcended. On the most archaic levels of culture this posibility of transcendence is expressed by various "images of an opening"; here, in the sacred enclosure, communication with gods is made possible; hence there must be a door to the world above, by which the gods cand descend to earth and man can symbolically ascend to heaven.
The best smell in the world is that man that you love.
Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.
