Quotes

Marco introducing Tim:

“I heard it said that Tim is like an onion: no matter how deep you get, it’s still onion, it stinks, it makes you cry. And I found that to be the exact opposite.”

Tim on not caring what strangers think:

“It’s part of  being a man: being who you are regardless of what other people think.”
