I used to work in a fire hydrant factory. You couldn’t park anywhere near the place.
I guess what I learned the most was to feel lucky with what I have been able to accomplish and what I have and to feel humble about the people I have been able to work with.
I don’t try to focus on anything that doesn’t affect me personally and how I go out there every single day. I’m just going to continue to work hard and focus on what I can control.
I don’t pay to have my dirty work done for me. I do it myself.
I approach love differently now that I know it’s hard for it to work out.
Having a second chance makes you want to work even harder.
Hard work – I mean does anybody use that term anymore? Laziness doesn’t fly. It’s all in the practice. It does take work and it ain’t easy – but man the rewards!
Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves some turn up their noses and some don’t turn up at all.
Hard work without talent is a shame but talent without hard work is a tragedy.
Generally a chef’s book is like a calling card or a portfolio to display their personal work.
