Always desire to learn something useful.
Be gentle to all and stern with yourself.
You never know what motivates you.
The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.
Who seeks shall find.
It's always too early to quit.
Either you run the day or the day runs you.
Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.
If you think you can do it, you can.
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.
