I pick my favourite quotations and store them in my mind as ready armour, offensive or defensive, amid the struggle of this turbulent existence.
Barcelona are my favourite team in Spain, let's put it that way.
I love pink - pink's my favourite. I hardly ever - weirdly - wear it, but I love the colour pink.
My favourite superhero? I have a soft spot for Batman, because he doesn't have any super powers - he's just a person. And he's pretty dark.
My favourite poem is called 'Roots and Wings' - it's a very moving poem about how if you've got real roots you can fly.
I live in Cape Town but my favourite holiday destination is Hermanus, a little seaside town about a 90-minute drive away, over the pass and down to the sea, on the sunshine coast. It's where I love to escape to with my wife for a weekend every now and again.
One of my favourite messages about 'The Pirate Fairy' is that the story is about appreciating your own talents.
Roses are my favourite flower, and my mum always grew a lot of them.
My inbox and doormat are full with emails and letters from people who want me to endorse their Higgs board game or to inaugurate the walkway of their new office atrium. There's even a microbrewery in Barcelona which wants to know what my favourite beer is so they can brew a similar one in my honour. It is quite mad.
I don't really like watching myself - it isn't necessarily one of my favourite things to do.
One of my favourite actors of all time, although he doesn't necessarily play villains, is Peter Lorre.
My favourite president, and the one I admired most, was Harry Truman.
The computer is my favourite invention. I feel lucky to be part of the global village. I don't mean to brag, but I'm so fast with technology. People think it all seems too much, but we'll get used to it. I'm sure it all seemed too much when we were learning to walk.
Stupidity is not my favourite thing; I cannot deal with it.
Chermoula is a potent North African spice paste that is ideal for smearing on your favourite vegetables for roasting.
When I go, God's going to have to give up his favourite chair.
One of my favourite kinds of movie is the American picaresque, in which the characters make their way across the country, learning about life against the gorgeous backdrops of that vast land.
One Indian-inspired favourite of mine is mashed potato mixed with lemon juice, breadcrumbs, coriander and chilli, shaped into patties, fried and served with chutney and yoghurt.
Chickpeas are one of my favourite things to serve with chorizo or lamb meatballs; they also work brilliantly as the quiet partner in a vibrant alphonso mango salad.
Scotland is one of my favourite places to perform: it's really something special. Scottish audiences are just so enthusiastic; their approach to dance music just feels similar to my own somehow.
My favourite people to follow on Twitter are... my fans. They make me laugh so much and keep me smiling.
One killer exercise that's really great is pull-ups with your legs out level. That's my favourite. It's such functional core strength, and that's why I can climb up trees and down vines.
I don't spend a lot of my time in the locker room. That's my least favourite place in the world.
I have my favourite black knife with me all the time. It's a switchblade. It relaxes me to flick it.
My favourite subjects at school were algebra and logic: making a big problem into something small.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
