“I don’t know what I’d retire from.
“I can’t imagine what retiring would mean. Not writing, not acting? It’s just a carry-on until I drop, really. As you get older it’s great to have projects that test you, it’s very important to find some new resources from somewhere, it’s good for you.
“When you’re 70 or older, there’s a certain amount of wisdom, there’s a certain amount of things you don’t understand, but the perspective is interesting.” Michael Palin
