'The Sopranos' gets praised as novelistic, but it follows the most banal of life patterns, showing the sheer tedium of being a mobster. It has dead spots, boring plotlines, weak episodes.

The weak have remedies, the wise have joys; superior wisdom is superior bliss.

Portia de Rossi

Actors, movie stars, rock stars, I can meet them with no worries - but with footballers I go weak at the knees. All of them.
I knocked a lot of guys out from the seventh round on - so if I gave up, I would never have achieved what I did. There was no giving up. It's weak to give up. The easiest thing in the world is to quit.

But I became intellectually interested in Christianity again in my mid-30s.
I always thought Christians were the weak people. When you can't make it in life then you have to ask God. I really prided myself on being a self-made man.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
