On frequenting a karaoke bar:
"I used to hang out at karaoke bars all the time. It was the most fun you could have when you had no money. I went right here twice a week"... from 1995 until, like, 2002. Religiously. And she was one of the gals. There was a whole clan of people, this circuit of people. We'd get together and just have the best time. You know, she was a tremendous singer. A really, really great singer."
On not liking the stock market:
"I will never be in the stock market. It's just gambling. I'm a gambler, but I'll gamble on the practicality of things. If I'm all-in on a structure, at least I can sleep in the damn thing."
"Architecture and building is about how you get around the obstacles that are presented to you. That sometimes determines how successful you'll be: How good are you at going around obstacles?"
