  • [announcing his intended retirement from The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (2005), 2014] CBS and I are not getting divorced, we are consciously uncoupling. But we will spend holidays together and share custody of the fake horse and robot skeleton, both of whom we love very much.. I'll go and do something else. Probably, I'm thinking, carpentry. But I haven't made my mind up yet.
  • Change is the law of the universe and resisting it is the source of all pain
