What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.
Either you run the day or the day runs you.
Be gentle to all and stern with yourself.
To know oneself, one should assert oneself.
If you're going through hell, keep going.
Be thine own palace, or the world's thy jail.
Without hard work, nothing grows but weeds.
If you can dream it, you can do it.
Never complain and never explain.
Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.
I came to water late. I learned to swim at the age of 20.

It's an ongoing joy being a dad.
I try to be a hard boiled sometimes. My kids see right through it. I'm acting. It's always, 'When I say you'll be back at 11, that means 11, not 11.15. Do you hear me!?' Then, 'Yeah, Dad.'

For every successful actor or actress, there are countless numbers who don't make it. The name of the game is rejection. You go to an audition and you're told you're too tall or you're too Irish or your nose is not quite right. You're rejected for your education, you're rejected for this or that and it's really tough.
I have to make it my job to be careful with my family.
I do believe at the end of the night when you're with your family, the character gets hung up on the door like a coat, and is there to be taken on the next morning.
