-Your time is limited so dont waste it living someone else's life .
-The thing about working a lot is that you never have a chance to worry about things that have happened or things that are going to happen.It forces you to live in the moment.
- " Do you ever get a sense of detachment from your own life ? So often i do something like put my keys in the door and can't quiet believe it's my door and my life."
