"Before I was conceived? I was floating around in some dimension of space and I was caught, I suppose, by both my parents and brought into a life with them. That may seem like an insane thought, but it makes sense to me."

"I believe in reincarnation and what we did in our past life basically prepares us for this life, and I believe in my past life I was a king. And right now all I'm doing is striving to get back to my kingdom."

"Nowhere. Nonexistent. I'm an atheist. I don't believe in the hereafter. There's no 'was' and no 'will be,' only 'is.' We're just here for our short period of time to help ourselves and other people and do the best we can."
"Before this time around? I was here, probably somewhere out West. Then I died, but I didn't get some things right, so I had to come back ... but I'm gonna get it right this time."
"I never thought about that. It's a puzzle. We might've been atoms, floating in space. Where was God when he made the Creation? Was he floating around in space, thinking, 'What can I do with all this?' Maybe he just took the stars and planted these stars in women. Maybe that's where we came from."
