Quotable Quotes:

"If you don't have confidence, you'll always find a way not to win."

"Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. A former greenskeeper, now, about to become the Masters champion. It looks like a mirac...It's in the hole! It's in the hole! It's in the hole!"

"You are only an actor if you absolutely love it and can not do anything else. Starving for your art is great in your 20s, but it's not so great at 35. It has to be absolute love. You can't worry about being a movie star or anything else. Just love. That's it." (IMDB)

"I do not make films primarily for children. I make them for the child in all of us, whether he be six or sixty. Call the child innocence."
