“The first step toward change is awareness. If you want to get from where you are to where you want to be, you have to start by becoming aware of the choices that lead you away from your desired destination.”
“The person who experiences greatness must have a feeling for the myth he is in. He must reflect what is projected upon him. And he must have a strong sense of the sardonic. This is what uncouples him from belief in his own pretensions. The sardonic is all that permits him to move within himself. Without this quality, even occasional greatness will destroy a man.”

“Fair are the flowers and the children, but their subtle suggestion is fairer; Rarer is the roseburst of dawn, but the secret that clasps it rarer; Sweet the exultance of song, but the strain that precedes it is sweeter And never was poem yet writ, but the meaning outmastered the meter.”

“It was never my dream to be famous. I didnâ€™t start acting to be a movie star. I started in the theater and my desire was to get better at my craft. Itâ€™s still my desire. I donâ€™t consider myself a movie star, nor do I really have the desire to be one. Iâ€™m just an entertainer...An actor who works hard at his craft. Whatever labels people give me, thatâ€™s not really me or part of my process.”
