On Optimism

“Negativity is what kills you… It’s tough to do, but you’ve got to work at living, you know? Most people work at dying, but anybody can die; the easiest thing on this earth is to die. But to live takes guts; it takes energy, vitality, it takes thought… . We have so many negative influences out there that are pulling us down… . You’ve got to be strong to overcome these adversities … that’s why I never stop.”
