I don't have one movie that is my favorite, I have about 25-30 favorites.
There isn't a book that has changed me, but I have favourites such as 'Pride and Prejudice' which I often re-read.
I don't write happy songs. Who does? I don't know anybody who writes happy songs, really.
To me rites of passage through life, that's a wonderful, beautiful thing.
In boxing, everybody has their favorites.

When we have a Deputy Prime Minister who tells people not to drive cars but has two Jags himself, and where the Minister who tells people not to have two homes turns out to have nine himself no wonder the public believe politicians are hypocrites.
Anybody who writes a diary insists it must be read by someone else.
Our life is a book that writes itself and whose principal themes sometimes escape us. We are like characters in a novel who do not always understand what the author wants of them.
I'm always just surprised when someone writes something about me.
