When you're mad at someone, it's probably best not to break his arm with a baseball bat.
You'd think a guy who has broken 35 bones in his body would have a high pain threshold, but mine is pretty low. I got hit in the shin with a golf ball once, and it almost brought tears to my eyes. I've had broken bones that didn't hurt as bad.
Kids come up to me all the time and say, 'Once I was going through a really bad time, and I saw you crash and get up, and it inspired me.'
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.
The saddest thing is when a guy is paying so much attention to the world and everything going by that he can't take the time for his own mother.
Prison was tough on me. I saw people in prison that made me ashamed I was a human being. Some make Qaddafi and Idi Amin look like Sunday-school teachers.
I like to help kids, work with kids in detention homes. Don't tell a kid what's right and wrong. He knows what's right and wrong. Find out what his attitude and his aptitude are; try to help him where he wants to go.
If you don't know about pain and trouble, you're in sad shape. They make you appreciate life.
If there is a heaven, I don't know anything else I can do to get there - and neither do you.
But you come to a point in your life when you can't pull the trigger anymore.
Anybody can jump a motorcycle. The trouble begins when you try to land it.
This is a year and a few months after the transplant. Before I had it my doctors told me that it would be the biggest thing that I ever had to face and believe me, when they take your liver out of ya and put another one in it's like replacing a football in your stomach.
I am a guy who is first of all a businessman. I'm not a stunt man. I'm not a daredevil. I'm - I'm an explorer.
If you look at the Bible almost everything that was predicted, maybe everything, has come to pass.
All my life people have been waiting around to watch me die.
I know that I'm very lucky to be alive. For 35 or 40 years I've spilt my blood and broke my bones and spent years in hospitals.
I love the feeling of the fresh air on my face and the wind blowing through my hair.
I decided to fly through the air and live in the sunlight and enjoy life as much as I could.
I always wanted to live to about 70. I thought that'd be a good age.
It's easy to be famous today. People pay a million dollars to be recognized, but nobody cares about them. They cared about me because I did things other men were afraid to do. That's why my fans identified with me. They were mostly working-class.

I think these shows with the young kids doing these jumps, doing these fantastic back flips, I think they're absolutely great. They did what I never did.
The Internal Revenue Service is more ruthless than the Gestapo. Abolish the IRS! Stamp out organized crime!
I think if you have ability and talent in one way, you have it in all ways. I'm not a jack of all trades; I'm a master of many. I don't feel there is anything I can't do if I want to.
You are the master of your own ship, pal. There are lots of people who fall into troubled waters and don't have the guts or the knowledge or the ability to make it to shore. They have nobody to blame but themselves.
