Quotable Quotes:

"For a while, I wore a toupee because I thought it would help me get work. But it didn't, so eventually I threw it away and said, "They'll have to take me the way I am." (IM DB)"

"I'm a professional actor. I get the part. I read the script. If I decide to do it, I learn the lines. I have no theory about acting. For me, there is no Method. I just do it." (IMDB)

"No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path."

"As he approached the gravesite, he could feel the tight knot deep inside his chest. (V)"
