"Life trumps work. Careers, waxing and waning, and you see everybody struggle to deal with that green-eyed monster, 'success'. How much of your soul do you give up? You get to the point where you kind of stop wanting to meet with your heroes: they have feet of clay. The things that give me the most happiness are my wife and my kids. That's what life is all about. The other stuff is just for... shits and giggles."
—Tim Kazurinsky
