Never complain and never explain.
If you've got a talent, protect it.
You never know what motivates you.
Only the educated are free.
Be thine own palace, or the world's thy jail.
If you can dream it, you can do it.
Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.
The dog that trots about finds a bone.
Either you run the day or the day runs you.
The most effective way to do it, is to do it.
My dad died when I was three so my mom had to raise four kids on her own, and I think there's a part of me that pulls upon having watched my mom do that our whole lives. She had to make it work.
Usually a family is led through the mom or the dad and their career and for the family to be led by my career, even though God has led it, could be a lot of pressure.
No one was more important than my mom and dad. I know they are watching from a place up in heaven here today to make sure all their kids are doing good.
My dad recently reminded me that my grandfather's cousin was Lefty Frizzell.
I was brought up in a car family, my dad loved cars and I was taught the art of making an Austin 7 operate.
My dad's an architect and my mom owned a French bakery for twelve years.
My mum was very conscious about fashion and my dad was born into the tailoring tradition, so fashion has always been my life, although now, really, I wear the same thing - just in different weights - light and heavy cashmere in winter and cotton in summer.
I always told my dad I'd play professional football.
My dad doesn't like religion much, but I grew up very close to the Baptist tradition. God isn't this distant thing. God is right here with you all the time. He's your buddy, and you can talk about everything.
My dad was an inventor, and I think I've always had a rosy view of technology, or at least its potential.
