If you've got a talent, protect it.
Leap, and the net will appear.
Be gentle to all and stern with yourself.
Always desire to learn something useful.
Only the educated are free.
Do not weep do not wax indignant. Understand.
Know or listen to those who know.
Quality is not an act, it is a habit.
Expect problems and eat them for breakfast.
Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.
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.
