As you get older you have to force yourself to have new dreams. For instance, I've been flying for 37 years but now teaching others to fly is interesting for me. Sometimes you have to find new angles on life to keep you interested, like sharing successes and inspiring and helping others. You have to go out of your way to activate your dreams and keep them going in this third chapter of your life.

I was just thinking of James Dean and Marilyn Monroe and how young they were when they died. I would like to be a pop icon who survives. I would like to be a living icon.

I have to believe there's some other life force out there. I don't know in what form. But we can't have all these galaxies and universes without something going on.

The first thing I ever rode when I was a kid was a motorcycle, so I knew how to drive a motorcycle before a car.

Oh yeah, dancing's part of my soul. I enjoy it, it makes people happy, and it makes me happy.

I was suited for fame, and I mean that in the most non-egocentric way. I don't mind gearing my life towards privacy. It's my nature.

I believe L. Ron Hubbard resolved the human mind, and in resolving it he has also resolved human pain - that's what I really think has happened here.

I love fun movies that also have something to say. They tend to stay with me, always.
