I like my body when it is with your body. It is so quite new a thing. Muscles better and nerves more.
e. e. cummings
I don't get nervous in any situation. There's no such thing as nerves when you're playing games.

How is it possible that a being with such sensitive jewels as the eyes, such enchanted musical instruments as the ears, and such fabulous arabesque of nerves as the brain can experience itself anything less than a god.
He that struggles with us strengthens our nerves, and sharpens our skill. Our antagonist is our helper.
You think, eventually, that nothing can disturb you and that your nerves are impregnable. Yet, looking down at that familiar face, I realized that death is something to which we never become calloused.
But what if I fail of my purpose here? It is but to keep the nerves at strain, to dry one's eyes and laugh at a fall, and baffled, get up and begin again.

Lucius Quintus Cincinnatus Lamar II

There are times I felt insecure or not sure: I'm unsure of myself, or I get nervous, but nerves are good. I try and embrace all those things. I try and embrace the times where I'm not sure of myself or I'm like, 'Is this going to work? Is this going to land?'

Nerves are good. They keep you alive.
