Many of the most successful men I have known have never grown up. They have retained bubbling-over boyishness. They have relished wit, they have indulged in humor. They have not allowed ‘dignity’ to depress them into moroseness. Youthfulness of spirit is the twin brother of optimism, and optimism is the stuff of which American business success is fashioned. Resist growing up!
We live in all we seek. The hidden shows up in too-plain sight. It lives captive on the face of the obvious – the people, events, and things of the day – to which we as sophisticated children have long since become oblivious. What a hideout: Holiness lies spread and borne over the surface of time and stuff like color.
I’m worried about privacy because of the young people who don’t give a damn about their privacy, who are prepared to put their entire private lives online. They put stuff on Facebook that 15 years from now will prevent them from getting the jobs they want. They don’t understand that they are mortgaging their future for a quick laugh from a friend.
When it comes to religion, we’re not two sides of the same coin, and you don’t get to put your unreason up on the same shelf with my reason.

I had to evolve out of that into an alternative consciousness about what it meant to change the way I played guitar, and the kind of songs, and the subject matter, and singing about child abuse, and all this stuff. I had to come from somewhere, and I had to take chances to do that.
My mother, father and brothers (I was the youngest of three boys), were all very sarcastic and we were a complete Irish-Catholic family. We didn’t talk about our feelings ever, and if we did, we were yelling about them – there was no in-between. That’s just carried over so many ways in my life and sabotaged relationships, sabotaged creative stuff.
Aaron is a very passionate, maniacal writer so the scripts really come from him, but he is very open to… y’know, we’ll plan ideas and we’ll certainly tussle about stuff when the script comes out. So, to a certain extent, he’s very interested. If there’s some problem or something that doesn’t ring true, he wants to know why and he wants to correct it or fight for it.
