Quotable Quotes:

"Persistence can change failure into extraordinary achievement."

"Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom."

"Pain only goes away when you are dead and buried."

"The glittering mansion overlooks a vast sprawl of shanty towns, wherein a desperate, demoralized humanity is kept in line with drugs, television, and armed force."

"One moment can change a day, one day can change a life and one life can change the world. "

"Don't point that gun at him. He's an unpaid intern."

"He (Huggy Bear) wasn't a pimp. This whole glorification of pimps and all that makes people think that. But they never told you what he did. One minute he had a bar, the next minute he was a guy on the street hustling, but he was always in the know. But he was never a pimp. The guy who was on 'Baretta' was a pimp. His character was called The Rooster. Plus there were other roles were I had played pimps so a lot of people may have thought that." (IMDB)

"Antonio Fargas had a troubled life full of criminal activities and mafia links. He was shot by the police in 1981 and died a short time later in a US prison. (V)"

"He was a great man with a good heart. (V)"
