So, I'm the Eighth Wonder of the World. It's flattering and very, very funny.

Men reach their sexual peak at eighteen.

Women reach theirs at thirty-five. Do you get the feeling that God is playing a practical joke?

I made more money yesterday than I ever thought I'd make in an entire lifetime.

But it's like somebody's going to take it all away from me and I'll be back in Texas, installing them damned irrigation wells. I didn't like that when I was sixteen. And I know I wouldn't like it when I'm eighty.

I sit every once in a while and I think about plays and films I can do with William Petersen into our eighties. He's the most incredible scene partner I've ever had.

Eighteen months ago I weighed 95kg and had a 40-inch waist.

Now the waist is down to 34 inches and I weigh nearly 98kg.

I've just had eighteen straight whiskies. I think that's the record.

I seldom think of politics more than eighteen hours a day.

I had to learn to do everything because I couldn't find another kindred soul.

Now you see eighty people listed doing the same things I was doing by myself.

Guitar players in the nineties seem to be reacting against the technique oriented eighties.

I just think that there are those people that their resolve is strengthened by what it is that's keeping them down, and there are some people that will buckle under it. You never know which one is which until you get into the eighth or ninth round of the fight.

It's eighty percent script and twenty percent you get great actors. There's nothing else to it.

Being a lawyer in New York sucks because you're working eighty, sometimes a hundred hours a week.

I have eighteen titles in the German language. I had a number one song in 1965.

In my eighties, my best friends are in their fifties, and I have many friends at university. It keeps one young, and up with the vocabulary. That's terribly important, especially for a writer.

Eighty percent of Americans with HIV do not know they are infected.

So it's probably eighty percent luck and twenty percent skill.

I had been writing fiction since I was in eighth grade, because I loved it.
