"Salma told me a story that revealed a lot about her as a person. A lot of people come to Hollywood and expect things to just happen, and it doesn’t just happen. Someone told Salma when she first came here, “You’ve got to have an agent.” So she called the William Morris Agency. She said, “I’d like to speak to William Morris.” The receptionist said, “He’s dead,” and hung up on her. So she called back ten minutes later and said, “Can I speak to his son?” I just thought that was really funny because it shows she’s full of determination. I imagine Salma puts that same determination into her acting and her relationships."

"When I was 30 I promised myself that I’d be out by 40 and I’m 40 now. Any more than this and I’d start feeling like a professional. A lot of the songs I’ve written are as good as I’m going to do. I don’t want to repeat myself. So, what becomes the next goal? Being bigger? The next goal becomes about making more money. It’s just not all that interesting."

"The definition I coined for success is: Peace of mind attained only through self satisfaction in knowing you made the effort to become the best of which you’re capable. Now, we’re all equal there. We’re not all equal as far as intelligence is concerned. We’re not equal as far as size. We’re not all equal as far as appearance. We do not all have the same opportunities. We’re not born in the same environments, but we’re all absolutely equal in having the opportunity to make the most of what we have and not comparing or worrying about what others have. I coined that in 1934. Later, I started working on my pyramid. I worked on that for the next 14 years, placing success according to my definition at the apex."

John Wooden, UCLA’s legendary basketball coach, who died at age 99 (1910-2010)

Thanks to my Dad for sharing the thought-provoking quote, which led me to the equally inspiring interview.
