My favorite thing about being famous... it's not really as big of a deal as everybody says it is. Being on the road is tough, doing interviews, and all the stuff. It's still pretty tough.
Towards the end of the military service, I had to make what I assume has been the most important decision in my career: to start a residency in clinical medicine, in surgery, which was my favorite choice, or to enroll into graduate school and start a career in scientific research. It was clear to me that I was heading for graduate school.
The National's favorite experiences as musicians are when we are collaborating with people a little outside of our world as a band.
In seventh and eighth grade, grammar and vocabulary were not my favorite subjects.
Whenever I see a tree that is climbable, it must be climbed. Sometimes when I'm on a run, I'll just run up a tree, jump on a branch and swing off. My favorite tree, in Saratoga, gets me a good 75 feet up.
My favorite prayer is Footprints in the Sand. You know that prayer? I know the times that he carried me, you know? I kind of wore him out.
The ocean is the lifeblood of our world. If we were to lose our fish that we appreciate so much by overfishing; or if we were to lose some of our favorite beaches to overbuilding and pollution, then how would we feel? It's become a case of not knowing what you've got until it's gone.
Almost all of my favorite shows are limited series. It just seems to be the better way to go.
I love being a father. It's one of my big jobs is just being a parent. It's one of my favorite things I do.
My favorite types of movies definitely aren't thrillers, but at the same time you can't deny the genius of Hitchcock's films.
