"As my father once said: 'Don, when you're different your heart is open to a little ache. But remember, when you're different you might capture all the stars, but the whole world will not rally around you. But you do have a chance of having them notice you. So go home at night, put your head on the pillow and thank God for what you've attained. And maybe God will look down and say 'Hey, I am grateful to you son for doing something different.' I like to think that I am different. I like to think that the public will understand me. If they do I am grateful. To all of you, I wish what I have, as I say in my performance when I appear, people around you who care."
