"Sometimes people think that I'm not serious about the business. I love doing it as much as anybody else, and I want to do it forever. But I am not going to say it's the most important thing in my life. It never will be. I didn't want to work, work, work and then realize, all of a sudden, that we've got a couple of kids and we never had the chance to travel together, to be young and married and having fun." (1999)
