Being a father, being a friend, those are the things that make me feel successful.
Being famous is not something that would make me feel successful - unless one was striving for mediocrity.
All I know is that my best work has come out of being committed and happy.
Heroes to me are guys that sit in libraries. They absorb knowledge and then the risks they take are calculated on the basis of the courage it took to become replete with knowledge.
But I am not going to live for ever. And the more I know it, the more amazed I am by being here at all.
