Terry Kinney quotes

  • Once you play something, then you get 20 more of those. So I've tried to avoid getting stuck. I try to take roles that are the opposite of the last thing I did as much as I can.

  • I think good storytelling continues to teach you how it unfolds. And so I don't think that film and stage are mutually exclusive at all. It's just that you're always in a wide shot.

  • Chicago theater vs. New York theater. There's just nothing to say about it really. If you've seen Chicago theater, you know that the work is true to what is there on the page. It's not trying to present itself with some sort of flashy, concept-based thing. It's about the work, and it's about the acting you're about to watch. So acting-based theater feels like it was born there to me.

  • Animals play a big part in my life, on tour or at home.

  • If you want to know about the Sixties, play the music of The Beatles.

  • My downtime tends to resemble my uptime. Weekends are workdays, but toned down. Over the whole weekend, I may have five meetings, as opposed to six on a weekday. I used to play piano for 30 minutes at night, but I had to pull that out of my schedule. I don't have time for nonwork stuff.

  • If you want something to play with go find yourself a toy, baby, my time is too expensive and I'm not a little boy.

  • If you are serious, don't play with my heart, it makes me furious.

  • The chief danger of the Church today is that it is trying to get on the same side as the world, instead of turning the world upside down. Our Master expects us to accomplish results, even if they bring opposition and conflict. Anything is better than compromise, apathy, and paralysis.  God give to us an intense cry for the old-time power of the Gospel and the Holy Ghost!

  • If at first you don't succeed/You can dust it off and try again/Dust yourself off and try again.

  • Beginning with the first bite, and for every bite after, that try to chew ten times.
