John Cleese - "For me, the great problem growing up in England was that I had a very narrow concept of what God can be, and it was damn close to an old man with a beard [...] God was treated like this powerful, erratic, rather punitive father who has to be pacified and praised. You know, flattered [...] I really did expect a golden haze to descend gently on my shoulders. Eventually, I switched out of disappointment to atheism."

100 years old "I'm now an old man and nature is cruel. It's jest to make old age look like a fool. The body, it crumbles grace and vigour, depart. But inside this old carcass . A young man still dwells, And now and again my battered heart swells I remember the joys, remember the pain. And I'm loving and living life over again. So open your eyes, people open and see. Not a cranky old man . Look closer . . . see .. ME!!"
