  4. Take your work seriously but don’t take yourself seriously.
  5. If you want a guarantee buy a toaster.
  6. Ever noticed how you come across somebody once in a while you shouldn’t have messed with? That’s me.
  7. Respect your efforts; respect yourself. Self-respect leads to self-discipline. When you have both firmly under your belt that’s real power.
  8. There’s a rebel lying deep in my soul. Anytime anybody tells me the trend is such and such, I go the opposite direction. I hate the idea of trends. I hate imitation; I have a reverence for individuality.
  9. I’m interested in the fact that the less secure a man is, the more likely he is to have extreme prejudice.
  10. Extremism is so easy. You’ve got your position, and that’s it. It doesn’t take much thought. And when you go far enough to the right you meet the same idiots coming around from the left.
  11. I don’t believe in pessimism. If something doesn’t come up the way you want, forge ahead. If you think it’s going to rain, it will.
  12. Maybe I’m getting to the age when I`m starting to be senile or nostalgic or both, but people are so angry now. You used to be able to disagree with people and still be friends. Now you hear these talk shows, and everyone who believes differently from you is a moron and an idiot – both on the Right and the Left.
  13. If a person is confident enough in the way they feel, whether it’s an art form or whether it’s just in life, it comes off. You don’t have anything to prove; you can just be who you are.
  14. Like most pictures that I’ve done, I’ve had no idea whether anyone would ever want to see ’em. But I figured I’d like to see it.
  15. I know what you’re thinking. “Did he fire six shots or only five?” Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?
