“A man came up to me at a party and asked if I wanted to be in his video game. I of course said yes. And then it turned out it was ‘Assassin’s Creed’, so that was great. They let me ad lib a lot and mess about and be very snarky indeed, and I’m thrilled by the success of all their hard work.”

“And as I looked at the star, I realised what millions of other people have realised when looking at stars. We’re tiny. We don’t matter. We’re here for a second and then gone the next. We’re a sneeze in the life of the universe.”

“Anonymity is an abused privilege, abused most by people who mistake vitriol for wisdom and cynicism for wit.”

“Because isn’t to be pursued, to be thought of as special, to be needed by someone somewhere, whether we know them yet or not, all any of us actually want?”

“Because the one thing I hate about hope – the one thing I despise about it, that no one ever seems to admit about it- is that suddenly having hope is the easiest route to sudden hopelessness there is.”

“But the happiest people are the ones who understand that good things occur when one allows them to.”

“I had it all planned. Or, not planned exactly, but I’d planned to make plans. Plans were very much part of my plan.”

“I think we all have those moments at one point or other in our lives… when we see someone and immediately imagine a whole universe around them. A relationship, a future, and all based on just a second which might not even have been in their company. It’s amazing how quickly the human mind can come up with this stuff.”

“I try to find where the fun is and go there and then get asked if I want to have more fun. That’s the way I want my life to go. Follow the fun.”

“I was her world, yes, and I was at that point we all reach where I was denying she was mine. I’d never quiet forgive myself for that.”

“I was saying yes because when you’re in love, the world is full of possibilities, and when you’re in love, you want to take every single one of them.”

“I will say yes to every favor, request, suggestion and invitation. I will swear to say yes where once I would say no.”

“If I was going to act irresponsibly, the least I could do was be responsible for it.”

“I’m a long-time fan of Rob Long, and his books are hugely re-readable, detailing the ins and outs of being a Hollywood comedy writer with a past success but with everything to prove.”

“Maybe sometimes it’s riskier not to take a risk. Sometimes all you’re guaranteeing is that things will stay the same.”

“Probably some of the best things that have ever happened to you in life, happened because you said yes to something. Otherwise things just sort of stay the same.”

“Sometimes I look at myself and think, Is this it?, and then I think, Yes, it is. This is literally the best you will ever look. Tomorrow, you will look just a little bit worse, and this is how it will go, for ever.”

“Sometimes the little opportunities that fly at us each day can have the biggest impact.”

“Take the stupidest thing you’ve ever done. At least it’s done. It’s over. It’s gone. We can all learn from our mistakes and heal and move on. But it’s harder to learn or heal or move on from something that hasn’t happened; something we don’t know and is therefore indefinable; something which could very easily have been the best thing in our lives, if only we’d taken the plunge, if only we’d held our breath and stood up and done it, if only we’d said yes.”

“The closed mind is a disease. You need to have an open mind; otherwise life will just pass you by.”

“The fact is saying yes hadn’t been a pointless exercise at all. It had been pointful. It had the power to change lives and set people free… It had the power of adventure. Sometimes the little opportunities that fly at us each day can have the biggest impact.”

“The only time you have no opportunities is when you decide to stop taking them.”

“The people around you are you. They share your history. They can even write it with you. And when you lose one, there’s no doubt you lose some of yourself, however they’re lost.”

“The people who know you well are the people who know your vulnerabilities.”

“The sad thing is, I was discovering that you almost have to make a joke of being good to strangers. Up and down the country, these people doing their good deeds were doubtless being seen as slightly eccentric, when in reality and in an ideal world they should be deemed the most normal people of all.”

“The words ‘mainly in America’ translated to me as ‘this is bollocks’ and I sat back in my chair with a sigh.”

“This might just be two people in a queue, but this has become a mighty battle of wills – a war between all that is right and all that is wrong – and it is I and I alone standing at the gates between one minor slight in the queue-munity, and outright supermarket-based anarchy. In many ways, I am doing this for you.”

“You were always an underdog in a videogame, but always guaranteed to win if you just kept plugging away, learned the moves, knew when to Save and when to Quit.”
