You fight, you try your best, but if you lose, you don’t have to break five racquets and smash up the locker room. You can do those things, but when you’ve finished, nothing’s changed. You’ve still lost. If something positive came from that, I probably would do it. But I see only negativity.

Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.

I have so much chaos in my life, it’s become normal. You become used to it. You have to just relax, calm down, take a deep breath and try to see how you can make things work rather than complain about how they’re wrong.

The happiness of one’s own heart alone cannot satisfy the soul; one must try to include, as necessary to one’s own happiness, the happiness of others.

I feel like guys, girls, whatever it is, you just come out hoping to make the best record. You just try to have a conversation and just create what you’ve talked about. Whatever you find to fit the beat at the time, what the person is down for, wherever the beat takes you towards.
I think regardless of what your religion is or what you believe, you try to treat people in a positive way, and that’s all you can do in life.
What bothers most critics of my work is the goofiness. One reviewer said I need to make up my mind if want to be funny or serious.

Things go wrong for me all the time with technology. I’m not familiar enough with it, and I’m too old-school a brain to be able to figure it out. I’m dumb.

If you don’t think every day is a good day, just try missing one.
On the course, I sometimes eat a little sandwich or a slow-release energy bar – one on the front nine and one on the back nine. You’re out there five hours, so you have to keep eating.

One of the greatest resources people cannot mobilize themselves is that they try to accomplish great things. Most worthwhile achievements are the result of many little things done in a single direction.

Those who today always look for disciplinarian solutions, those who long for an exaggerated doctrinal ‘security,’ those who stubbornly try to recover a past that no longer exists – they have a static and inward-directed view of things. In this way, faith becomes an ideology among other ideologies.
I think it’s impossible to maintain a good, strong, muscular physique without taking some supplements. Between the protein shakes and the multivitamins that I take, I use C4, the pre-workout mix.

I have a dogmatic certainty: God is in every person’s life. God is in everyone’s life. Even if the life of a person has been a disaster, even if it is destroyed by vices, drugs or anything else – God is in this person’s life. You can – you must – try to seek God in every human life.
If you behind me, I’m not going to look back and try and figure out what you’re doing behind me.
Instead of stubbornly attempting to use surrealism for purposes of subversion, it is necessary to try to make of surrealism something as solid, complete and classic as the works of museums.
You have to understand that every negotiation isn’t about taking everything off the table. It’s cliche, but you have to try and make sure the other side feels good and you feel good. Because in my business, when I make a deal, it just means once we’re done negotiating, we have to go off and work together.
I like refried beans. That’s why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they’re just as good and we’re just wasting time. You don’t have to fry them again after all.

The sexiest thing in the entire world is being really smart. And being thoughtful and being generous. Everything else is crap. I promise you. It’s just crap that people try to sell to you to make you feel like less. So don’t buy it. Be smart. Be thoughtful and be generous.
I try to start drinking water as soon as my feet hit the floor in the morning.

A myth is an image in terms of which we try to make sense of the world.
If something is boring after two minutes, try it for four. If still boring, then eight. Then sixteen. Then thirty-two. Eventually one discovers that it is not boring at all.
Try not to do too many things at once. Know what you want, the number one thing today and tomorrow. Persevere and get it done.
As long as God gives me strength to work and try to make things real for my children, I’m going to work for it – even if it means making the ultimate sacrifice.

I remember being in college knowing I didn’t want to go anymore. I wanted to try and become an actor. There is a something in me, with a risk of sounding cliche, that I just had to do it. I knew from an early age that acting was my path.
I’m prepared to try to talk to a very beautiful girl. I learned a fantastic secret, which is that the most beautiful woman in the room is not being spoken to because she’s too intimidating. They’re not looking for somebody beautiful; they’re looking for somebody to amuse them.
People will try to pull you down, but you need to fight the negativity in your life. It’s always good to stay positive and think positive.
I simplify the spices. I’m the same way as everybody else: if I look at a recipe and there’s ten spices in it, I’m going to have to think long and hard about when I’m going to be able to make that… so I try to simplify the spices to three or four.
Don’t try too hard to be something you’re not.
Most people live and die with their music still unplayed. They never dare to try.

I always try to see my weakness, work on it, to be better as a person and a player, everything.
Please think of me like an endangered species and just observe me quietly from far away. If you try to talk to me or touch me casually, I may get intimidated and bite you. So please be careful.
