I have learnt that I am me, that I can do the things that, as one might put it, me can do, but I cannot do the things that me would like to do.

When I am dead, I hope it may be said: His sins were scarlet, but his books were read.
Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested; that is, some books are to be read only in parts; others to be read, but not curiously; and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention. Some books also may be read by deputy, and extracts made of them by others, but that would be only in the less important arguments, and the meaner sort of books; else distilled books are, like common distilled waters, flashy things.
Acting deals with very delicate emotions. It is not putting up a mask. Each time an actor acts he does not hide; he exposes himself.
Some people are addicts. If they don't act, they don't exist.
Sometimes you gotta create what you want to be a part of.
The man who has no imagination has no wings.
First I was dying to finish high-school and start college. Then I was dying to finish college and start working. Next, I was dying for my children to grow old enough for school, so I could return to work. Finally, I was dying to retire. And now, I am dying
No man dies for what he knows to be true. Men die for what they want to be true, for what some terror in their hearts tells them is not true.
He that is kind is free, though he is a slave; he that is evil is a slave, though he be a king.
When a man has no reason to trust himself, he trusts in luck.
Let every eye negotiate for itself and trust no agent.
The Pause; that impressive silence, that eloquent silence, that geometrically progressive silence which often achieves a desired effect where no combination of words, however so felicitous, could accomplish it.
Never forget the power of silence, that massively disconcerting pause which goes on and on and may at last induce an opponent to babble and backtrack nervously.
I really wanted to die at certain periods in my life. Death was like love, a romantic escape. I took pills because I didn't want to throw myself off my balcony and know people would photograph me lying dead below.
I never wanted to see anybody die, but there are a few obituary notices I have read with pleasure.
There can be no deep disappointment where there is not deep love.
Progress is not an illusion, it happens, but it is slow and invariably disappointing.
In nine times out of ten, the slanderous tongue belongs to a disappointed person.
It is foolish to pretend that one is fully recovered from a disappointed passion. Such wounds always leave a scar.
A cynic is not merely one who reads bitter lessons from the past; he is one who is prematurely disappointed in the future.
Ambition has its disappointments to sour us, but never the good fortune to satisfy us. Its appetite grows keener by indulgence and all we can gratify it with at present serves but the more to inflame its insatiable desires.
He took over anger to intimidate subordinates, and in time anger took over him.
Sticks and stones may break your bones when there's anger to impart. Spiteful words can hurt your feelings but silence breaks your heart. Anger is as a stone cast into a wasp's nest.
Always give your best. Never get discouraged. Never be petty. Always remember: others may hate you. Those who hate you don't win unless you hate them. And then you destroy yourself. . . .Only if you have been in the deepest valley can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain.
If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn't part of ourselves doesn't disturb us.
The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.
You can't sweep other people off their feet, if you can't be swept off your own.
We are born crying, live complaining, and die disappointed.
