From interviews:

Austin, Texas-based singer and songwriter Butch Hancock has his own approach to reviewing his life. "I can't imagine anything I would do differently. I'd probably go out of my way to make the same mistakes. What do you learn if you don't make mistakes? We learn by contrast. If there's no contrast, we won't be able to tell any difference. We'd just stay in the same place."

"Sometimes you have to compromise because it's life's compromise. Sometimes you cannot." -Russian dancer Andrei Ustinov talking in the early 1990s about his defection to the United States in October of 1987.

"I couldn't understand why anyone would dedicate their life and time to something like sports. I just couldn't understand it. I would see these javelin throwers come in and train hundreds of hours a week.

"I didn't understand it until one day I realized I was practicing my guitar four hours a day and playing six nights a week. And it hit me that this was what I'm dedicating my life and time to. Maybe this is what the good Lord has put me down here to do." -country star Garth Brooks, May 1990.

"...accepting that there are a lot of things that you can't control in your life, but always working toward making things better for yourself." -artist Brian Joseph, early 1990s.

"There are some people that are just comfortable with the down and out, and I am. That's where God called me to work. I think God gives you that comfort zone." -the Rev. Meredith K. Whitaker, United Methodist missionary, October 1991.

From the printed word:

Thomas A'Kempis said: "There are many things the knowledge of which is of little or no profit to the soul."
