Some suggestions for you :

Life is lived on the edge.

The things that have been most valuable to me I did not learn in school.

I love producing. I am loving doing that. I think that is my most natural space in the business. I just love producing or editing and that's where I thrive.

I've always considered myself to be just average talent and what I have is a ridiculous insane obsessiveness for practice and preparation.

If it was something that I really committed myself to, I don't think there's anything that could stop me becoming President of the United States.

And where I excel is ridiculous, sickening, work ethic. You know, while the other guy's sleeping? I'm working.

I had to focus and create a character in Bagger Vance, not just do my 'Will Smith' thing and get paid.

My skin is hard when it comes to my music. But with my movies, I'm still a virgin in a lot of ways. I'm not used to being shot down for no reason.

So if you stay ready, you ain't gotta get ready, and that is how I run my life.

In black neighborhoods, everybody appreciated comedy about real life. In the white community, fantasy was funnier. I started looking for the jokes that were equally hilarious across the board, for totally different reasons.

There's so much negative imagery of black fatherhood. I've got tons of friends that are doing the right thing by their kids, and doing the right thing as a father - and how come that's not as newsworthy?

Whatever your dream is, every extra penny you have needs to be going to that.

A rapper is about being completely true to yourself. Being an actor is about changing who you are.

When I was growing up, I installed refrigerators in supermarkets. My father was an electrical engineer.
