Quotable Quotes:

"To conquer oneself is a greater task than conquering others."

"I wanted to retain my individuality. I was afraid of being hampered by studio policies. I knew if someone else got control, I would be restrained."

"During my 18 years I came to bat almost 10,000 times. I struck out about 1,700 times and walked maybe 1,800 times. You figure a ballplayer will average about 500 at bats a season. That means I played seven years without ever hitting the ball."

"You can't beat two guitars, bass, and drums." (IMDB)

"He had leukemia and was fighting it with all he had. (V)"

"Despite his passing, the impact of Lewis Reed's life and legacy will continue to live on as a source of inspiration and influence for generations to come. (V)"
