When it gets to the part in life where you're more afraid of what your wife is going to do to you than if you box, say, Mike Tyson, you've got to get a new profession. You don't get to be a family. I know why boxers never quit, some of them. They don't have wives.
Never call an accountant a credit to his profession; a good accountant is a debit to his profession.
Cooking is in an honest profession where you cannot hide and let others do the work for you. You have to show up, work hard and prove you can do it faster and better. And find a mentor who will recognize your talent and push you in the right direction.

Louis C. K.

I'm trying to find a way to maintain my own personal balance in the midst of everything.
Rebecca De Mornay
