On remaining humble, despite his stardom:

"I never have felt that people should feel that they are better than others, simply because they just happen to possess a larger share of material items and monetary wealth than others less fortunate. I believe in sharing, assisting, and just lending a helping hand to people."

On studying the Bible:

"Each day I take time out to study the Bible, no matter where I am. The teachings of the Bible have added a new dimension to my life. It, somehow, makes me whole."

On the world’s poverty and the economically-deprived children:

"I love to travel, and, so far, I’ve been lucky enough to see a great deal of the world. In certain parts of the Globe, I’ve seen hungry children walking the streets with no shoes on. I’m very concerned about the hungry children of the world and I hope I can do something positive to help alleviate this problem."
