I was a manic and eccentric kid. In my head I was very busy, so I must have seemed weird.
I like people who are minimalist with their words. Jack Nicholson thinks a lot then says something, and it's always spot on. Nelson Mandela is the same.
Most people who get into power in the western world start with great intentions, but slowly they all become entrapped and hung by their own petard.
I know that Annie Lennox has saved my life quite a few times, and I never forget that.
