William Grant Bangerter quotes

  • Honesty is the foundation of a sound character and the keystone of all other virtues. It is the cement without which all other redeeming features are fractured and without anchor. A dishonest person may be kind, witty, and very capable, but the strength of character simply isn't there. Honesty does not come by degrees. A person is either all honest or he is dishonest. You can be true or you can be false, but you can't be both at the same time.
    -- William Grant Bangerter

  • We have no excuse to deviate from the paths of righteousness. If we hold fast to the iron rod, we cannot be deceived.

  • If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?

  • In America, anybody can be president. That's one of the risks you take.

  • We fall in love because we long to escape from ourselves with someone as beautiful, intelligent, and witty as we are ugly, stupid, and dull. But what if such a perfect being should one day turn around and decide they will love us back? We can only be somewhat shocked-how can they be as wonderful as we had hoped when they have the bad taste to approve of someone like us?

  • No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar.

  • If once you forfeit the confidence of your fellow-citizens, you can never regain their respect and esteem.

  • I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live up to what light I have.

  • Is it a particularly British trait to so utterly adore truly appalling men, from Tony Hancock through to Steptoe and Alf Garnett, Captain Mainwaring, Rigsby, Del Boy, Victor Meldrew and on to David Brent from The Office. The most deeply adored characters are all simply vile.

  • The difference between human heroes and sacred characters lies just in this: the man is just a man, but behind the man of God, God Himself is ever standing greater than the man and overshadowing him by His infinite and glorious presence.

  • But I guess I like playing flawed guys 'cause it gives a place for the characters to go.

  • I have done scenes as Harvey Two-Face. It's interesting. I won't tell you exactly what we're going for, but I think that I can say that it will use all of today's technology to create this character. He's going to be interesting, and I think that's what makes this character important in the movie-you get to see him as he was before, as in the comic books. Harvey is a very good guy in the comic books. He's judicious. He cares. He's passionate about what he loves and then he turns into this character. So you will see that in this film.
