One's dignity may be assaulted, vandalized and cruelly mocked, but cannot be taken away unless it is surrendered.

The biggest gift on Father's Day is if I can be with all my kids.

My view of life is colored by humor and looking at the best in any situation.

I can't be smug, because I know that you can lose anything at any point. And I can't be angry, because I haven't lost it.

I have no argument with those who see in organized religion a template or an imperative to live life according to a prescribed set of beliefs. Just give others the room, within the laws of civil society, to believe or not believe whatever they like.

Certainly people have a lot tougher situations than I've had to deal with. But I will say we are all dying from the moment we are born. This is not just rehearsal.

Life delivered me a catastrophe, but I found a richness of soul.

I don't feel a yearning or a sense of missed opportunities. I don't have many regrets. So that's a nice feeling. To have no regrets and still have enough sense of adventure to take on risk.

When I was younger, I was always described as happy-go-lucky. Then I drank and I partied - did all that stuff that might tell you maybe there was a little bit of untruth in that [description]. Now, the surprising thing is that when I say stuff, I actually mean it. I don't have to do the work of trying to formulate my point of view. It just is. And it's surprising how much I love life. I just really have a good time.
