We’re just having a good time. We’re the passengers. But we’re going to be in big trouble if we kill off the crew. So we’ve got to protect the crew.

The real secret to a long life:

it’s not what you ingest – there are people on natural, healthy diets who live long lives and people who smoke and drink alcohol every day
It’s not your environment – there are people all over the world and in all social stratum who live long lives.

There is only one true secret to a long life: keep breathing!
