"It's like having a 4-year-old climbing on you all the time, and so whatever you're trying to do, you've got this 4-year-old and you're ... just trying to be patient and focus on what you need to do. I'm a dad, I'm a husband, I'm an activist, I'm a writer and I'm just a student of the world. This is one fact of my life, but it's not the totality of my life. It doesn't define me."
-- Michael J. Fox, to Oprah Winfrey, on not getting beat by Parkinson's Disease.
