High wire

There's a documentary out on a Frenchman who wire-walked across the World Trade Center towers in 1974. I love the quote about him being scared....

"Scared is such a little word," says Petit. "Terror is much more noble."

And another great quote...
When a friend answered his phone and said the makers of Sweet'N Low were calling with a proposal, Petit said, "Hang up on them. I am strong and high."

And this...
"If an artist is not a little famished, then something is wrong."

That last one is great. I want to stay hungry.
