I saw that my image was changing or fading. One of the reasons for taking a break from clubs was to be missed-not forgotten.
Sammy Davis, Jr.
For reasons that baffle me still, my high school sports coaches put me in the first division of the rugby, cricket, and soccer teams.
You think that your life is going to be one way, and then, for various reasons or whatever, it doesn't work out.
At one point in your life, you'll have the thing you want or the reasons why you don't.
I think there's a stereotype of what a biker is, and I think that's one of the reasons people are shocked when they find out that I ride. I've been trying to break down the stereotypes and inspire new riders.
I think the best thing I ever did was never tell anyone I wanted to be an actor. I find if you tell people what you're dreaming about, they'll usually come up with lots of reasons to not chase your dreams.
We have forty million reasons for failure, but not a single excuse.
One of the reasons inequality gets so deep in this country is that everyone wants to be rich. That's the American ideal.
