I'm a huge Dallas Mavs fan. What I love about Dirk Nowitzki is he has just as much talent as everyone else, if not more, and he never toots his own horn. He's this silent warrior.

Francis Herbert Hedge

Meaghan Jette Martin
I've known lots of people that are talented and nothing happens. It's not about talent, it's relentless drive.

When you have God-given talent, I think that that kind of hinders your practice habits and that's what I think it did to me.
When I was growing up, I wanted to be a house painter like my father, but I was always screwing up when I went to work with him. I had a talent for knocking over paint and painting myself into corners. I also realized fairly quickly that painting bored me.

I'm always playing a role, whether it's the role of the mayor, the role of a news anchor, or a role of a crazy talk-show host. But there was a specific function.
