Michael J. Fox: Adventures of an Incurable Optimist

"I sat down with a farm family, and ... even these little differences in the way, like, the farm family would talk to me about ... about how they all are there for each other," he said. "So, it's ... it's a sense of unity. We can, all of us, potentially heal the world and we all have a part to play in ... improving the lives of the people around us."

Michael J. Fox: 'Music Is Everywhere'

In writing his book, "Always Looking Up," Fox said he wasn't sure whether to tackle the role religion plays in happiness.

"I didn't know whether to write about it, because ... I'm not an extremely religious person. I don't ... subscribe to any particular orthodoxy. I don't attend church on a regular basis. ... Having grown up Protestant in Canada, really, my question was, if I don't have a set kind of religion ... why am I so grateful? Like, who am I grateful to?"

One thing Fox said he knows he's grateful for these days is time spent with his four children when they get home, which he calls the happiest part of each day.

"Bedlam at dinnertime and homework and, you know, 'Where's my math book.' And, you know, 'I want a hamster.' There's a music to it. And it's hearing that music in our everyday lives. This is big," he said. "You know, music is, is everywhere."
