When you fly across the country in an airplane the country seems vast; but it isn't vast. It's all connected by roads one can ride a bike down. If you watch the news and there's a tragedy at a house in Kansas, that guy's driveway connects with yours, and you'd be surprised by how few roads it takes to get there.
When you flow like water you bring all of your talents and resources to your creative work... Flow around every obstacle you encounter, including any you've erected yourself.
When you flip anything, you really you just have to have the courage of your convictions.
When you flee temptation be sure you don't leave a forwarding address.
When you fix something with your hands it gives you a sense of accomplishment and a sense of self worth.
When you fish for love, bait with your heart, not your brain.

When you first start out, you are just happy to get a job, any job. And as time goes on, either you move forward or screech to a halt.
When you first start out with something new, you're always a little uptight.
When you first start out in stand-up and, probably, as any performer, you enjoy the attention so much, and even though that hasn't died down on stage, it certainly has satiated whatever was in me that was needing that much attention. When I'm off stage, it's not something that I really need.
When you first start out as an actor, you're just looking for a good part. As time goes on, if you're being held responsible for the movies themselves, you're looking for a good script all around.
When you first start off, I know singers who have only been in the business just a short amount of time, and they've already written their autobiography. I didn't want to write it too soon.
