For me, the most attractive thing in a man is the ability to make me laugh.

Think about it: if you were running a multi-million dollar company, and your database of customer information was stolen, would you want to tell your clients?

The most important of my discoveries have been suggested to me by my failures.
The people you choose to have around you make all the difference. My family and close friends keep me grounded. You have to have a mind of your own and a strong head on your shoulders. Cricket is the most important thing to me, so the rest of it pales in comparison.
I've led a school whose faculty and students examine and discuss and debate every aspect of our law and legal system. And what I've learned most is that no one has a monopoly on truth or wisdom.

The imaginary world has always been the most fun place for me to be.
We benefit from doing nothing, from going out to play, from giving from the heart and spending time in nature. Most of all we benefit from having healthy, strong, and loving relationships with other people and from exercising the altruistic parts of ourselves.
