I loved couriers. You had this transfer of physical information happening throughout the city and the world.

John Millington Synge

I'd rather win two or three, lose one, win two or three more. I'm a great believer in things evening out. If you win a whole bunch in a row, somewhere along the line you're going to lose some too.
When I was 17, I went to India for six weeks and had what, at the time, was a very challenging trip.
