I decided to fly through the air and live in the sunlight and enjoy life as much as I could.
I love the feeling of the fresh air on my face and the wind blowing through my hair.
Anybody can jump a motorcycle. The trouble begins when you try to land it.
But you come to a point in your life when you can't pull the trigger anymore.
You can't forbid children to do things that are available to them at every turn. God told Eve, 'Don't give the apple to Adam,' and look what happened. It's in our nature to want the things we see.
