I get along fine with the press.
I've realised I can be happy.
I am very fortunate having the job that I do and I want to do it for as long as possible.
During my time as England captain I have always been both helpful and direct in my communications with the ECB.
I'm a very proud person.
I never think of playing for South Africa. It's the furthest thing from my mind.
I am very driven.
I love living in London but I would like to buy a place in Dubai and spend a few months of the year out there.
I change, like every single normal person.
I'm very thrilled and excited to have been given the opportunity to captain England.
It's tough being me.
There's so many differences of opinion in the papers.
Leaving South Africa was very difficult.
The only way to get a three to four-month break would be to tear a tendon or a hamstring or something like that.
A good four to six weeks is about right for a proper break.
I have no interest in anyone who wants to criticise me, or doesn't like me despite never having met me.
I'm always on my guard now.
I have some real big goals with England.
It's not fun facing a ball going 97 mph, trust me.
I am who I am, in terms of shooting from the hip occasionally.
I love England and I love cricket.
When I was single I went out a lot. I don't go out all that often now.
My England captaincy was not the England captaincy I wanted, that's what will live with me for a long time.
I need to rein myself in sometimes.
I have principles in my professional and personal life as to how things are done.
I always say that things are meant to be and everything happens for a reason, so I don't have any regrets.
I used to lie awake at night, willing myself to put in the hard work, the determination, the passion.
It's the weight of expectation that's the hardest to deal with, really, from my point of view.
I think I had about a month off when I broke my rib in Australia, which was magnificent.
I'm as hungry as ever.
Big players want to play in front of big audiences.
I hate these reality TV shows where people walk off Big Brother and think they're A-list celebrities when they've done nothing in their lives, it really does my head in.
In the past I've thrown my wicket away on certain occasions.
It's quite hard when you do fail and you don't achieve what you want to achieve.
The hardest thing is that you can't trust people now. You just can't.
I'd like to think that every captain around the world has a vision of how they want their teams to play and most of them are allowed to take their teams forward in their own way.
I don't feel sorry for myself.
An achilles, if it doesn't heal right, there could be a danger of not playing again.
I'm not a robot.
I married a pretty famous girl, and when we drive through town there's usually a car following us, when I walk out of my front door in Chelsea there's six guys waiting for me.
Look, I've heard a lot of people talk about me, they say I'm like Marmite. They like me, or they don't like me.
Once you have the support of the lads around you, you can't ask for any more.
I have never been racist.
Everyone is into male grooming.
These days you can play almost 100 Test matches in six years.
India buzzes for its players and that makes you feel special.
People do write books.
I can never sit still for five minutes.
The England team is a team that never, ever stops.
No one in their right mind would turn down the contracts I've been offered.
