I think that the romantic impulse is in all of us and that sometimes we live it for a short time but it's not part of a sensible way of living. It's a heroic path and it generally ends dangerously. I treasure it in the sense that I believe it's a path of great courage. It can also be the path of the foolhardy and the compulsive.
My favorite meal is turkey and mashed potatoes. I love Thanksgiving it's just my favorite. I can have Thanksgiving all year round.

I'm Jewish and my wife isn't so right now we're literally decorating a Christmas tree with Jewish stars draped around it.

My favorite toy growing up was Polly Pocket. But one gift that I wanted though never received for Christmas was a pair of trampoline moon shoes. You strap them to your feet and they have springs on them and you can just jump around!

The whole point of me doing a Christmas record and what I centered it around was the song 'Christmas with You' from the point-of-view of the soldiers in Iraq.
Christmas gives us the opportunity to pause and reflect on the important things around us - a time when we can look back on the year that has passed and prepare for the year ahead.
Christmas makes me happy no matter what time of year it comes around.
There are some people who want to throw their arms round you simply because it is Christmas there are other people who want to strangle you simply because it is Christmas.
Another Black Label motto. That's what I think life is. It's just another bridge to cross. You ask no questions. Whatever work it is you gotta do you gotta go over it under it through it around it to do it.
I learned that the only way you are going to get anywhere in life is to work hard at it. Whether you're a musician a writer an athlete or a businessman there is no getting around it. If you do you'll win - if you don't you won't.
The bottom line is when people are crystal clear about the most important priorities of the organization and team they work with and prioritized their work around those top priorities not only are they many times more productive they discover they have the time they need to have a whole life.

My work is the only ground I've ever had to stand on. To put it bluntly I seem to have a whole superstructure with no foundation but I'm working on the foundation.

Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it go through it or work around it.
