Things present themselves to you, and it’s how you choose to deal with them that reveals who you are. We all say a lot of things, don’t we, about who we are and how we think. But in the end it’s your actions, how you respond to circumstance that reveals your character.
Success must never be measured by how much money you have.
If you like small government you need to work hard at having a strong national defense that is not so militant.

When someone bestows something on you, no matter how true it is, when someone says, ‘Sexiest Man Alive,’ I’m honestly going, ‘Thank you. Right on.’ For me, it’s never canceled out anything, it’s never made me go, ‘Does this make me less talented of an actor?’
Never give up on your dreams, no matter how painful and difficult your journey is.
While on top of Everest, I looked across the valley towards the great peak Makalu and mentally worked out a route about how it could be climbed.
