Great quotes from Michael:
If you stick with anything you see success at some level.
You can think you know something about someone and not know anything of significance.
It [his faith] is so brand new. It’s like a set of shoes out of a box that I don’t really know what to do with.
Working on patience is as hard as working on your comedy set.
He’ll find you anywhere even if it’s in front of a Subway restaurant on a Tuesday.
