Nothing will ever replace the feeling I got when Jesse Orosco
struck out Marty Barrett
to end the game (Game 7 of the 1986 World Series) and I got the opportunity to run out into his arms. To me, that was the greatest accomplishment. Without a doubt, that was my biggest thrill.

Money is not a motivating factor. Money doesn’t thrill me or make me play better because there are benefits to being wealthy. I’m just happy with a ball at my feet. My motivation comes from playing the game I love. If I wasn’t paid to be a professional footballer I would willingly play for nothing.

The harp that once through Tara’s halls The soul of music shed, Now hangs as mute on Tara’s walls As if that soul were fled. So sleeps the pride of former days, So glory’s thrill is o’er; And hearts that once beat high for praise Now feel that pulse no more.

I’m a little less hungry as an actor than I used to be. When you’re a director, you’re the conductor of the orchestra, and when you’re an actor, you’re playing the violin. There’s a thrill to each of them, but as the conductor, you get the fuller sound.
Almost 70 years have gone by, and I’ve still got that feeling when I write… Writing, for me, is still it. It has always been the basis of everything I do. I’m a writer who performs, not a performer who writes. I love the act of writing. It’s still a thrill for me.

I think the most important thing that I can offer young musicians is once you get up on the bandstand, understanding that you’re now asking this prayer to come through you.

Maybe I’m old-fashioned. But I remember the beauty and thrill of being moved by Broadway musicals – particularly the endings of shows.
In a deeply tribal sense, we love our monsters, and I think that is the key to it right there. It is monsters; it is learning about them: it is both thrill and safety.

I don’t have a favorite fruit. There are things that thrill me each turn of the season.
