“I don’t take anything for granted.  I’ve been given extraordinary opportunities, I’ve also fought for extraordinary opportunities.  So I don’t believe you’re ever just there in this golden moment.  You probably always have to remind people that you’re there, that you have something to offer, maybe something beyond what they could imagine for you.”

“Mellow doesn’t always make for a good story, but it makes for a good life.”
