Unlucky in status, in love and in looks, Anderson refused to let others intimidate him out of using his talent and became determined to only live up to the standards that he set for himself.

*No matter what you are “unlucky” in, work hard to live up to the standards that you set for yourself.

Today, his weight-room regimen consists of a jam-packed hour that extends to 90 minutes only on the days he tacks on an extra treadmill session.

“The workouts are fast and intense,”

“hit it and quit it”

“targeting exactly the muscle group I want to fire.”

*“Hit it and quit it” with a jam-packed hour work out and throw in another 30 minute treadmill session if you feel like solving a big SVU murder later.

“I told myself I would never ride the subway. If I went from 42nd Street to 45th Street, I took a cab. I ate only at the best restaurants. I thought I would become a star in a month. But that’s not the way it works in New York. New York doesn’t care who you are or where you come from.”

A year later, she was out of cash and still jobless.

*No matter where you live, don’t live beyond your means.

“Fuck, he’s got a good life out there. Really, just all you’d ever want. A little village with a nice pub, walk your kids to school every day. That’s all I think I want.”

*This was a quote from Mackenzie Davis. I don’t even know who she’s talking about. But what she is describing sounds like a nice life. Simplistically describe all that you want in life.

You started hearing stories of him getting dropped off at the facility in the morning and then he’d jog back home. Then he started jogging to work and jogging home.

It was about a 3-mile jog from Taylor’s apartment to the facility, meaning he’d jog an extra 6 miles a day when he ran to the facility and back.

*Jog to work and back home today. Or at least park 3 miles from work and jog to and from in honor of the late Sean Taylor

SOUL

Susan Boyle 1961

“I enjoyed being in church because I liked the peace and tranquility. I liked the hymns and I liked the idea of having a connection with God.”

That’s what they do when Robin comes to New York City… They go to McDonald’s!

“He (Robin) got large fries, big mac — no pickles – always no pickles, and he always says no onions even though big macs don’t have onions on them, I think,”

“I just got two filet-a-fish. Well it’s the filet-a-fish, I had to do it! It’s real fish!”

*Take your brother to McDonald’s and place the same order as the Lopez twins.
