  • “Tattoos are interesting, but at the same time they are also a mask — you are exhibiting your past life on your body.”
  • “Life is good when you have a good sandwich.”

  • “All the dreams I dream are nightmares and those nightmares are the ones I live.”

  • “Money buys you the freedom to live your life the way you want.”

  • “I’m a meathead, man. You’ve got smart people, and you’ve got dumb people. I just happen to be dumb.”
