                      Nothing separates the generations more than music. By the time a child is eight or nine, he has developed a passion for his own music that is even stronger than his passions for procrastination and weird clothes.

                          You can turn painful situations around through laughter. If you can find humor in anything, even poverty, you can survive it.

                                    Anyone can dabble, but once you've made that commitment, your blood has that particular thing in it, and it's very hard for people to stop you.

                                        I am certainly not an authority on love because there are no authorities on love, just those who've had luck with it and those who haven't.

                                          For two people in a marriage to live together day after day is unquestionably the one miracle the Vatican has overlooked.

                                            Women don't want to hear what you think. Women want to hear what they think - in a deeper voice.

                                              People can be more forgiving than you can imagine. But you have to forgive yourself. Let go of what's bitter and move on.
