I love being middle-aged in general. I'm more at peace with myself now. I still have tormented times, but they are few and far between.

There are so many factors to lead to a child becoming obese.
It's not a matter of if economies around the world becoming low-carbon, but when and how: through struggle and strife or through advancement and progressive leadership.

Having the ambition of becoming Olympic champion is a whole different ambition from wanting to be the greatest.
I'm quietly becoming New York's premiere actor. People don't understand. They have me pigeon-holed as a comedian.
The problem with my mind is it sways from side to side. The idea of me fantasizing about becoming an actor quickly led to depression. 'No, it was never going to happen to me.'

When I got out of high school, I was in a blues band. It was the kind of music I was interested in, and listening to, mostly because it was becoming a vehicle for a generation of guitarists - like Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton. Mike Bloomfield.
