The notion of the single man began in the 1950's. The idea of the bachelor as a separate life was new and obscure.
To pursue your dreams, to have them come true, to have made a difference, to have changed society, to have fought against powerful forces... that's a life well-spent.
In my wildest dreams, I could not have imagined a sweeter life.
I guess I'm the most successful man I know. I wouldn't trade places with anybody in the world.
The whole 1950s notion was find the right girl, get married, move to the suburbs and then hang out with the guys while she stayed home with the babies. I felt that was sort of sad.
It's good to be selfish. But not so self-centered that you never listen to other people.
