"The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can’t find them, make them." – George Bernard Shaw

Growing up in a military family gave Tony the broad outlook and global perspective from several relocations that included a two year period living off-base in Germany among the local population. He joined the United States Army immediately after high school and served for six years in locations that included Oahu, Hawaii, where he was stationed with the storied 25th Infantry Division.
Embodied in this quote from George Bernard Shaw, the famous playwright and cofounder of the London School of Economics, is Tony Scott’s personal and professional philosophy of life:
“The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can’t find them, make them.”
“I don’t want to work just to live. I want to live to do the work I enjoy!”
