    "It's not the end of the world"

    "Your acting like a prima donna"

    the best applause is our own laughter."

    i can't believe i'm going to put this one up, but i read an article with will smith recently about his workout regime for Legend.

    He said (and i might be slightly paraphrasing):

    "If you say you're going to run 3 miles, but only run 2 - I'll never have to worry about you beating me."

    It speaks volumes about motivation and standing behind your word (which is kind of a lost art these days).

    Cheers,
    Keebler
