As a young actor, people were trying to define who I was before I really knew that for myself. But I still remember thinking, "This is what I love doing, and I hope I'm going to be able to do it forever".

I look at the Samurai because they were the artists of their time. What I think struck me when I read Bushido is compassion. 'If there's no one there to help go out and find someone to help.' That hit me, because I try to lead my life like that.

I want a world without war, a world without insanity. I want to see people do well. I don't even think it's as much as what I want for myself. It's more what I want for the people around me. That's what I want.

I disagree with people who think you learn more from getting beat up than you do from winning.

I'm passionate about learning. I'm passionate about life.

I always look for a challenge and something that's different.

When you have to cope with a lot of problems, you're either going to sink or you're going to swim.
