I had too much integrity. I’d be a lot further in life if I had cut a few corners and cheated a few people along the way. Been a little more selfish. But it’s not who I am. Even in high school when we ran laps in basketball tryouts, I never cut corners. The result was I appeared slower than everyone else. I didn’t’ make the team then either.

_____________________

I don’t respect any entrepreneur who builds a company based on telling people who to build a company when he/she has never built another company but that one. It’s all snake oil.

I am so removed from politics that I sometimes forget who the president is. So much negativity from people on all sides nowadays.

I am a huge fan of Quentin Tarantino. I hope to be in one of his films one day.

I’m sitting here, eating food, listening to some of my favorite music alone. I can’t imagine who life could get any better.

Life will never be better than it is today. This is great news.

When you’re a genius, so you decide to drive a taxi for a living. Some would call that a waste. I call that beautiful.

You only have to give people what they want when there is competition. Otherwise people will settle for what satisfies their needs.

This might not be the one…

I don’t think we have to dream big. We just have to dream about being better.

…just have to dream about being together.

The silent treatment might be a part of female culture. It’s definitely not a part of male culture. Hence the confusion.

Do you want to be happy, or do you want to learn?

I need another miracle. Let’s just stack ’em up.

I’d like to see the POTUS hold himself to higher standards. But when one of the most famous athletes in the world (Lebron) consistently uses his platform to attack Trump, it’s like, well, who ought we to chastise? Both men are leaders. Both have room to grow

I’m a high quality guy, so I can have high standards. That’s how these things work.

One of the hardest things about learning is it makes you remember the mistakes of your past.
