"Losing both parents at a young age gave me a sense that you can't really control life - so you'd better live it while it's here. I stopped believing in a storybook existence a long time ago. All you can do is push in a direction and see what comes of it."
"Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter."Jon Hamm on Mark Twain
"Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young."Jon Hamm on Henry Ford
"Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been."Jon Hamm on Mark Twain
"True terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country."Jon Hamm on Kurt Vonnegut
"A diplomat is a man who always remembers a woman's birthday but never remembers her age."Jon Hamm on Robert Frost
"Acting is sort of an extension of childhood. You get to play all of these roles and have so much fun. Playing an athlete would be so cool. Or where you get to shoot guns, ride horses. I wouldn't turn down any of that."

"I have a lady, she's a great lady. I love her a lot, she loves me. We're on the same page. Whenever that day happens when we're not on the same page we'll move forward with it. We're interested in having our lives be our lives right now and not a third person's vis-a-vis marriage and whatever that means."
"It couldn't be a simpler answer. Marriage doesn't really mean anything to me. I feel like in many ways marriage is more for the families of the couple than for the people involved, so I don't gravitate to it."
"For a kid who's lost his mom and all the rage and grief that no one was able to talk out of me, football was a very therapeutic sport. Very."
