"I just want to show you how I worked so hard throughout the a year ago".

"Life is about seasons, and I think you got to know the seasons".

"You can not tell me that the 40-year-old has a fresh body", Belfort said. Of course, it's not the same. This is it. I'm very thankful, but I think my body needs to rest.
