(:09) Tiger short 1a. "my real apology to her will not come in the form of words; it will come from my behavior over time."

(:11) Tiger short 1b. "I was unfaithful. I had affairs. I cheated. What I did is not acceptable, and I am the only person to blame.

(:21) Tiger balance. "In therapy I've learned the importance of looking at my spiritual life and keeping in balance with my professional life. I need to regain my balance and be centered so I can save the things that are most important to me, my marriage and my children."

(1:01) Tiger short 2. "I owe it to my family to become a better person. I owe it to those closest to me to become a better man. That's where my focus will be.  I have a lot of work to do, and I intend to dedicate myself to doing it. Part of following this path for me is Buddhism, which my mother taught me at a young age. People probably don't realize it, but I was raised a Buddhist, and I actively practiced my faith from childhood until I drifted away from it in recent years. Buddhism teaches that a craving for things outside ourselves causes an unhappy and pointless search for security. It teaches me to stop following every impulse and to learn restraint. Obviously I lost track of what I was taught."
