“I like to pretend that I’m a tough guy. It’s kind of an admission of defeat if I have to ask for help — or even kindness. But if it doesn’t come, at some point I snap and demand it.”
“My daughter made an amazing jump in the pool the other day. I said, “You’re so brave.” She said, “No, I was scared.” I said, “That’s why you’re brave. If you weren’t scared, you wouldn’t be brave at all. You’d just be dumb.”

“No regrets. But there have been things that are worth regretting.”
“My son once asked me, “What happens when we die?” I said, “Nobody really knows. Some people think that the spirit” — and he stopped me. “What’s a spirit?” “Well, it’s a part of you that doesn’t change and people think that some part of it lives on.” He said, “Here’s what I think. I think we go into the ocean, we wash up on a desert island, and Georgia O’Keeffe finds our bones and then she paints them.” And I said, “I’m going with your version.”
“The first thing I ever bought for myself was a green Lacoste shirt.”
“Don’t have a fall back, because if you do, you’ll fall back.”
“I try to see the positive in everyday, to be a negative energy is just so draining on everyone. Pretty soon, no one wants to hang out, if you have too many hang-ups about the rotten parts of your day.”
“I’ll take any trophy. I don’t care what it says on it.”
“If someone would have told me ten years ago, that I would be playing a soccer-mom and a drug dealer, and they would be the same person…I would of thought you were crazy. But here, I am, a soccer mom that deals marijuana to the town each week on television.”
