"Nobody's perfect, but I just think having that person that's just behind you and you know they're behind you."

"Buddhism was a good one for me because it allowed me to just try and find that contentment without handing my life over to this higher power."

"If you just break it down into pure skill, tenacity, temperament, I'd say Higgins and Hendry have got a much better temperament than me."

"I think a lot of the snooker fans that don't really know the intricacies of the game would probably all say me. But then if you get people that really know the game, they would probably either say me, Hendry or Higgins."

"I wouldn't have chosen snooker. That was another mistake. My own kids, I was like, you're not playing snooker. I said, if you decide to play snooker, you're on your own."

"Stephen Hendry taught me so much. Not like sit down and talk. I observed. You know, he wasn't going to give me that privilege to kind of educate me. So for me, it was like, this is the greatest snooker player there's ever been. I just have to watch, observe."

"I have to put in the hard graft, I have to do a lot of the stuff and it's good that I think other snooker players recognise that and kind of respect you more for that side than just your talent."

"Anyone can play well for three rounds of golf. When it comes to the final round, you've got to do it. A lot of them bail out, you know what I mean? And that's the difference between great champions that win a lot and people that still win but don't."
