Quotable Quotes:

"The big lesson in life, baby, is never be scared of dying, death or anything."

"These go to eleven."

"Childishness? I think it's the equivalent of never losing your sense of humor. I mean, there's a certain something that you retain. It's the equivalent of not getting so stuffy that you can't laugh at others."

"To the question whether I am a pessimist or an optimist, I answer that my knowledge is pessimistic, but my willing and hoping are optimistic."

"On stage your job as actor is to present and show the story by your behavior, body language, and vocal work. In film, you musn't. You just have to be. You are...and it's mostly intuitive. The amount of characterization you do is very minimal. In fact, you try not to act at all. It's actually better that way, and it's taken me years to learn that." (IMDB)

"You know what African mothers tell their children every day? 'Be grateful for what you have. Because there are fat children starving in Mississippi."

"A disciplined bowel brings happiness every morning."
