1- Occasionally I get fed up, going to visit a factory, when I am being shown around by the chairman, who clearly hasn’t got a clue, and I try to get hold of the factory manager, but I can’t because the chairman wants to make sure he’s the one in all the photographs.

2- I didn’t want to be president of the World Wildlife Fund. I was asked to do it. I’d much rather have stayed in the Navy, frankly.

3- It would have been very easy to play to the gallery, but I made a conscious decision not to do that. Safer not to be too popular. You can’t fall too far.

5- People can’t get their heads around the idea of a species surviving; you know, they’re more concerned about how you treat a donkey in Sicily or something.

6- I reckon I’ve done my bit. I want to enjoy myself a bit now, with less responsibility, less frantic rushing about, less preparation, and less trying to think of something to say.

7- There was no precedent. If I asked somebody, ‘What do you expect me to do?’ they all looked blank. They had no idea; nobody had many ideas.

8- Everyone has to have a sense of duty. Duty to society, to their family. I mean, you name it.
