Denzel Washington on Life

Take responsibility. Look in the mirror and ask, “What can I do better?”

There is opportunity; you can make it. Whatever it is that you choose, be the best at it. Put your slippers way under your bed so when you get up in the morning, you have to get on your knees to find them. And while your down there, start your day with prayer. Ask for wisdom. Ask for understanding. I’m not telling you what religion to be, but work on your spirit. You know, mind, body, and spirit. Imagine —work the brain muscle. Keep the body in tune —it’s your temple. All things in moderation. Continue to search. That’s the best part of life for me–continue to try to be the best man.

DENZEL WASHINGTON is a Hollywood legend who rarely grants interviews, so you must pick up the November issue of GQ —women will absolutely swoon at the fashion editorial featuring hotspots around New Orleans— and everyone will learn a thing or two from Denzel’s wisdom and the man behind all that swagger.
