Motivational Quotes from Christian Kane

The fun of the game is right now. A lot of people don’t really realize that. They think you have to get to the top to start having fun, and it’s not. It’s the journey getting to the top where everything is always great. I’m on the ‘Ferris Bueller’ thing where I look around every once in a while so I don’t miss it.

My mom’s always been a good cook, so I took a lot of stuff from her, but most of the stuff I took from Emeril or Bobby Flay right off the TV and make it. I just loved to cook, so it just became a thing. It’s a release. Even if I’m alone, I’ll cook a full meal, maybe even a two-course meal, just because I love to cook. It’s my secret love!
