Desperation is a necessary ingredient to learning anything, or creating anything. Period. If you ain't desperate at some point, you ain't interesting.

I wrote myself a check for ten million dollars for acting services rendered and dated it Thanksgiving 1995. I put it in my wallet and it deteriorated. And then, just before Thanksgiving 1995, I found out I was going to make ten million dollars for Dumb & Dumber. I put that check in the casket with my father because it was our dream together.

I would visualize things coming to me. It would just make me feel better. Visualization works if you work hard. That's the thing. You can't just visualize and go eat a sandwich.

Green Eggs and Ham was the story of my life. I wouldn't eat a thing when I was a kid, but Dr. Suess inspired me to try cauliflower.

These are a small number of events, but they're enough to raise concern.

With the large number of minors allowed to drink ... the potential liability for not only the host of the event, but the property owner -- in this case, the city -- is staggering.

To win at the Big East level we all have to be on the same page. It's not an option otherwise.

If I'm not back in five minutes... just wait longer!

There was a line clear back down the road to get in to eat (Saturday). It's probably the only place you can go for five bucks, eat all you want and have real maple syrup.

Until Ace Ventura, no actor had considered talking through his ass.

There are too many unanswered questions regarding his ability financially to undertake this project.
