  • "I began to understand the huge crisis facing the human race. But we can feed all the starving people on the Earth, take care of the sick, and sustain the planet we've inherited.

Simple: I have a Greensburg project, and it is rebuilding a whole city in Kansas. I still do outreach programs. The most amazing lesson I have learned in my working is that people do not want to be told what to do or think.
  • "Defining yourself to the public on a consistent basis is death to a performer. The more you define who you are personally the less you are able to submerge into the characters you do, and people will think, 'I don't buy him in that role.'"[3]
What it means: Saying what you are to everyone is bad for a performer. The more you say what you are, the more you cannot be someone else, and people will think "I do not like him playing that role."
