The time I sort of began to think I was famous, I was driving somebody to the airport, and as I came back there was this movie house, and I saw my name in lights.

Larry the Cable Guy
I always think about what I missed, and I think that was my driving force - never be satisfied with what I've done.

It is quite true, as some poets said, that the God who created man must have had a sinister sense of humor, creating him a reasonable being, yet forcing him to take this ridiculous posture, and driving him with blind craving for this ridiculous performance.
