“I’ve never really viewed myself as particularly talented. Where I excel is ridiculous, sickening work ethic. […] The only thing that I see that is distinctly different about me is: I’m not afraid to die on a treadmill. I will not be outworked, period. You might have more talent than me ,you might be smarter than be, you might be sexier than me. You might be all of those things. You got it on me in nine categories. But if we get on the treadmill together, there’s two things: You’re getting off first, or I’m going to die. It’s really that simple.”

– Will Smith

“The one thing I want from life is that when it’s over, I didn’t squander the potential that I had.”

– Lianne
