The fact that something is actually understandable and relatable doesn’t mean that it’s unsophisticated or banal. It just means that it’s crystal-clear. And if you can’t explain it, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s so brilliant that ordinary mortals can’t fathom it. It might just mean that it makes no sense.

That was one of the lessons I had to learn – just relax and play. Don’t worry about what’s happened in the past; don’t worry what’s going to happen in the future. You are playing a game you dreamed your whole life about playing. There’s no sense in ruining it by worrying or doubting.

I’m not going to play funk licks on a jazz album. That makes no sense.

I’m a ‘Harry-Potter’-till-I-die kind of person. Those are the movies I grew up on. I was like, ‘Why would I want to watch any other movies when there’s ‘Air Bud’ and ‘Harry Potter?” It makes no sense why I have to expand my movie-viewing experience when I have two really wonderful films.

That makes no sense for someone to say if they were drafted by their country, that they’d say no.
