Paul Newman ( 1925 - 2008 ), American actor, director, race car driver: "I'm a supporter of gay rights...A man with no enemies is a man with no character...You only grow when you are alone...We are such spendthrifts with our lives, the trick of living is to slip on and off the planet with the least fuss you can muster...I'd like to be remembered as a guy who tried. Tried to be part of his times, tried to help people communicate with one another, tried to find some decency in his own life, tried to extend himself as a human being."

Wayne Gretzky ( 1961 - ), greatest hockey player in history: "When you win, say nothing; when you lose, say less...A good hockey player plays where the puck is. A great hockey player plays where the puck will be...I skate to where the puck will be, not where it has been...You miss 100% of the shots you don't take."
