I want to find a genie in a bottle that can grant me three wishes.

If inflation is the genie, then deflation is the ogre that must be fought decisively.

The first and last thing required of genius is the love of truth.

Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny .

.. and everything in between. But he was one of a kind.

I remember seeing Aladdin when I was five or six and loving it.

I looked at the big screen and said to my mum, Whatever this Genie guy does, I want to do. Mum said I couldnt be a genie, but that Robin Williams, who did the voice-over in the film, was an actor. So I said, OK, then, I want to be an actor.

I equate fame towards people who know your work, people who will see your work.

But all that stuff, like with the Genies and stuff like that, it was so much fun. It's so much fun and it's nice when it comes, but that's not what it's all about.

I think the American people recognize that the world has shrunk.

That it's interconnected. That you're not going to put that genie back in the bottle.

It's too late by the way, with virtual reality. You can't put the genie back into the bottle.
