    "Find something that you enjoy doing....nay, obsess with doing, and find a way to get paid for it....you'll never 'work' a day in your life."

    ...and...

    "Either do something and give it 100%, or don't bloody well do it at all! After all, in my job you don't half-build a bridge then go and do something else the next week....I mean, are people going to drive up to a half-way point and then fall off the edge into the water? Not when I'm in charge of the project!"

    "So long as I have my two hands, my brain and my health, be buggered if anyone's going to stop me achieving success."

    "Get so good at what you do that people will have to pay you what you want, because there'd be nobody else better than you at doing it. Then you can dictate your terms and conditions and work at your own pace, and not get stressed, let them experience it for a change. If they don't like it, too bad, because who else are they going to get?"

    "If say someone is trying to make you work for less than what you want or need to get paid, do this (keeps staring out of the window)...then if they say what the hell are you doing, just casually say 'Oh, nice day to fly a kite, mate...."

    "Many of us are slaves to our minds. Our own mind is our worst enemy. We try to focus, and our mind wanders off. We try to keep stress at bay, but anxiety keeps us awake at night. We try to be good to the people we love, but then we forget them and put ourselves first. And when we want to change our life, we dive into spiritual practice and expect quick results, only to lose focus after the honeymoon has worn off. We return to our state of bewilderment. We’re left feeling helpless and discouraged. It seems we all agree that training the body through exercise, diet, and relaxation is a good idea, but why don’t we think about training our minds?"
