I'd like to think there is a Heaven, and it starts from the happiest day in your life.
You have to really respect what your kids are doing with their kids and how they're raising them. You can't push your way into areas where you shouldn't be saying anything. You have to always remember they're not your own kids. Play with them, love them, spoil them to death - then hand them back.
I'm going to go on just living and laughing and loving.
To be good, you need to believe in what you're doing.

At 60, I could do the same things I could do at 30, if I could only remember what those things are.
I can't be funny if my feet don't feel right.
I'm a baby. I sleep like a baby - I'm up every two hours. And I think a lot. I worry a lot. I have great nights of no sleep where ideas come.
My mind is always going. I'm always thinking what I need to do, what I haven't done, what I did do, what I didn't do as well as I could - I'm relentless that way with myself.
I was a film-directing major at NYU. I'm still not sure why I became a directing major, when I was really an actor and a comedian, but there was something that drew me to doing that.
A laugh is a weird sound, and when you get a couple thousand people making it at once, it's really strange. But when I can feel proud of myself for causing it, it's great.
Gentlemen, start your egos.
Even when I was in school shows, in elementary school doing plays, I'd always go off book and start improvising.
