I think that it is our intention to deny cancer any control over us.
It takes a lot of work to put together a marriage, to put together a family and a home.
If people think that you're throwing babies out, dissecting children, to do stem-cell research, I'm not for that.

I think that we're foolhardy to not be engaging in federal funding of stem-cell research in the most aggressive way we possibly can.
A lot of people have great hope, and a lot of people who have great hope live. And, some of them who have great hope die. So it's not that hope is going to save you.
You have to have enough respect for other human beings to leave their lives alone. If you admire that life, build it for yourself. Don't just try to come in and take somebody else's life.
The days of our lives, for all of us, are numbered. We know that. And yes, there are certainly times when we aren't able to muster as much strength and patience as we would like. It's called being human.
But I have found that in the simple act of living with hope, and in the daily effort to have a positive impact in the world, the days I do have are made all the more meaningful and precious. And for that I am grateful.
A positive attitude is not going to save you. What it's going to do is, everyday, between now and the day you die, whether that's a short time from now or a long time from now, that every day, you're going to actually live.
