    quotes:

    As a kid I used to hold my breath longer than anybody else, and then I heard stories about people accidentally underwater for 45 minutes - how do you recover from that? It's not a miracle. Something allows us to survive.

    I remember finding a Houdini book at the library and seeing an image of him chained on the side of a building. He looked so intense and scary, and I couldn't get that image out of my head. That started building up my love of magic.

    I think everything I do is normal, not paranormal but normal. It's using the power of the mind to achieve whatever we can endure.

    To most magicians, cards themselves are marvels...For one thing, they feel special in your hand. Touching them, holding them, shuffling - the whole process is almost poetic. If you're in a room full of magicians and someone just mentions the word cards, within seconds, everyone is digging into their pockets and pulling out a deck of cards. It's one of the most amazing feelings ever.

    I think magic, whether I'm holding my breath or shuffling a deck of cards, is pretty simple. It's practice, it's training, and it's - It's practice, it's training and experimenting, while pushing through the pain to be the best that I can be.

    Magic's an art where you use slight of hand or illusion to create wonder. And I was just intrigued with that idea.

    In truth, the only restrictions on our capacity to astonish ourselves and each other are imposed by our own minds.

    But as they say about sharks, it's not the ones you see that you have to worry about, it's the ones you don't see.

    We are all capable of infinitely more than we believe.

    I think that, when you die, you go back to where you came from before you were born. So I don't think death is a bad thing.

    Visual association. But it also seems to fit his daringness and love of extreme situations. Do you know of any videos of him on the web?

    Hmm I always thought he was kind of ESFp since he loves to show off his performances and get the audience involved in a more suspencful way.

    I'm with Rick on this one. LIE.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...
