Quotable Quotes:

"Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing dead."

"Win If You Can, Lose If You Must, But NEVER QUIT!"

"I'm Howard Stern with a vocabulary. I'm the man he wishes he could be. [NYT 29 Sept. 1993]" (IMDB)

"Until a character becomes a personality it cannot be believed. Without personality, the character may do funny or interesting things, but unless people are able to identify themselves with the character, its actions will seem unreal. And without personality, a story cannot ring true to the audience."

"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give."

"A drug person can learn to handle such things as seeing their dead grandmother crawling up their leg with a knife in her teeth. But no one should be asked to deal with this trip."

"It took a while for her to figure out she could run but when she did she was long gone, Long gone."

"I've learned that something constructive comes from every defeat."

"Most people gaze neither into the past nor the future; they explore neither truth nor lies. They gaze at the television."
