What do lawyers learn in law school? They learn to win... What we've got to start thinking about is how do we solve problems.
I actually don't think that I'm that much smarter than anybody else. It's just that I frequently just seem to know what to do, and I think that's wisdom.
A lot of people simply don't realize their potential because they're just so risk adverse. They just don't want to take the risk.
I would like people to recognize in looking at my story that the person who has the most to do with what happens to you is you. It's not the environment, it's not the other people who were there trying to help you or trying to stop you. It's what you decide to do and how much effort you put behind it.
