8 – “It’s important to save your money. We need it for the long haul but too many Americans don’t save and don’t invest.  It used to be that people would be proud of the fact that they were middle class. You’d have your church and buy a house and you had a car and everything else.  Now, it’s really, really tough.  Everybody has financial issues except for the one percent.” – Michael Douglas

11 – “When I was younger I’d berate myself: You’re fat, you’re not a good dancer, you’ll never have a boyfriend. I don’t sweat that kind of stuff anymore. Now every day is a miracle. I’ve also learned that if something is painful or upsetting, you shouldn’t hide from it. You should make it part of your life instead.” – Valerie Harper
12 – “I used to live an isolated existence, even in relationships, but now my family knows me for who I really am. Mostly, that’s a good thing.” – Tim Allen
13 – “A lot of young actors have the idea that, “I’ve got to do this right.  There’s a right way to do this.”  But there’s no right or wrong. There’s only good and bad.  And “bad” usually happens when you’re trying too hard to do it right. There’s a very broad spectrum of things that can inhibit you. The most important thing for actors – and not just actors, but everybody – is to feel loose enough to create what you want to create, and be free to try anything. To have choices.” – Robert DeNiro

15 – “Hey, if I don’t have a job, I don’t know why I bother to get up. Any time the phone rings, I’m ready to go.  What else am I going to do? See, I’ve never retired.  I don’t even know what it means.” – Morgan Freeman
16 – “Customers should complain more. You know, food’s expensive nowadays. And these sommeliers come along with their thousand-page wine list and practically throw it in your lap. They’re all businessmen and know that customers get intimidated and buy something overpriced. I say, always put them on the spot. ‘You come back to me with a red wine at $30, $40.  Come back to me with a choice.’” – Gordon Ramsay
17 – “You have a responsibility to your work, to your choices. Once you get to a certain level of quality and commitment, you don’t want to go back and make Booty Call 7.” – Jamie Foxx
18 – “Many people don’t have the ability to be rich, because they’re too lazy or they don’t have the desire or the stick-to-itiveness. It’s a talent. Some people have a talent for piano. Some people have a talent for raising a family. Some people have a talent for golf. I just happen to have a talent for making money.” – Donald Trump
19 – “Stop chasing the money and start chasing the passion.” — Tony Hsieh
