Live your life while you have it. Life is a splendid gift. There is nothing small in it. For the greatest things grow by God’s Law out of the smallest. But to live your life you must discipline it.

~~~~~~~

I’ll look at the script and go, ‘This is great. Ooooh, and I love this character, [but] I’m not thrilled with the way it’s written.’ But you can see how the character should work. So I usually do a lot of re-writing to make sure the character comes through my own eyes.

~~~~~~~

I’ll spare you the actors’ pretentious rubbish, but a face reflects experience, so if you concentrate on a character something happens to you physically.

~~~~~~~

I decided that handwriting was best suited for this purpose. The exceptional size of the writing seems necessary to me in order to be in a decorative relationship with the character of the color prints. These pages, therefore will serve only to accompany my colors, just as asters help in the composition of a bouquet of more important flowers. Their role is purely visual Henri Matisse quotes

~~~~~~~

I’d rather go back to waitressing than play a character that I hate.

~~~~~~~

If a man character is to be abused there’s nobody like a relative to do the business.

~~~~~~~

If it were desired to reduce man to nothing, it would be necessary only to give his work a character of uselessness.

If one keeps loving faithfully what is really worth loving, and does not waste one’s love on insignificant and unworthy and meaningless things, one will get more light by and by and grow stronger. Sometimes it is well to go into the world and converse with people, and at times one is obliged to do so, but he who would prefer to be quietly alone with his work, and who wants but very few friends, will go safest through the world and among people. And even in the most refined circles and with the best surroundings and circumstances, one must keep something of the original character of an anchorite, for other wise one has no root in oneself; one must never let the fire go out in one’s soul, but keep it burning. And whoever chooses poverty for himself and loves it possesses a great treasure, and will always clearly hear the voice of his conscience; he who hears and obeys that voice, which is the best gift of God, finds at least a friend in it, and is never alone. Vincent Van Gogh quotes

~~~~~~~

If taxes are laid upon us without our having a legal representation where they are laid, we are reduced from the character of free subjects to the state of tributary slaves.

~~~~~~~

If then the power of speech is as great as any that can be named,—if the origin of language is by many philosophers considered nothing short of divine—if by means of words the secrets of the heart are brought to light, pain of soul is relieved, hidden grief is carried off, sympathy conveyed, experience recorded, and wisdom perpetuated,—if by great authors the many are drawn up into unity, national character is fixed, a people speaks, the past and the future, the East and the West are brought into communication with each other,—if such men are, in a word, the spokesmen and the prophets of the human family—it will not answer to make light of Literature or to neglect its study: rather we may be sure that, in proportion as we master it in whatever language, and imbibe its spirit, we shall ourselves become in our own measure the ministers of like benefits to others—be they many or few, be they in the obscurer or the more distinguished walks of life—who are united to us by social ties, and are within the sphere of our personal influence.

~~~~~~~

If we have need of a strong will in order to do good, it is still more necessary for us in order not to do evil.

I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

~~~~~~~

I lost 90 pounds and my blood pressure went down to a normal level and the salt in my urine disappeared. And that was when I had to make the transition from fat character actor to thin character actor.

~~~~~~~

I loved Old School. I thought Old School was very different than a lot of the comedies that had come out. And that character I liked. I tried to ground him very much in reality and play him very much finding things important to him that are somewhat ridiculous.

~~~~~~~

I mean, Jim’s Dad is the character -you’re not just laughing at what he’s saying, you’re laughing at who he is… On SCTV , we used to say, ‘If somebody were to look at these scripts, they would wonder, who’s investing money in putting this on?’ Because you can’t find a joke, you can’t find, honestly, a funny line.

~~~~~~~

I once did a role which I couldn’t rehearse in my street clothes, I had to have the character’s costume on before I could rehearse it. I just couldn’t think as the character unless I looked like him, or I knew that I looked like him.

~~~~~~~

I pride myself on my capacity to perceive the transitory character of everything. An odd gift which spoiled all my joys; better: all my sensations. I have decided not to oppose anyone ever again, since I have noticed that I always end by resembling my latest enemy.

~~~~~~~

I put myself into character for my songs.

~~~~~~~

I really don’t know what I’m doing… I don’t. It’s terrible. I go in there and I learn how to be like the character and do the best I can, and that’s all I really do.

~~~~~~~

I see and approve better things, I follow the worse. [Lat., Video meliora proboque, Deteriora sequor.]

~~~~~~~

I sincerely’ believe’ in the general existence of moral instinct. I think it the brightest gem with which the human character is studded, and the want of it as more degrading than the most hideous of the bodily deformities. Thomas Jefferson quotes

~~~~~~~

I sort of leave the character at the end of the day. I don’t carry anything around with me -no excess baggage or unnecessary thoughts. I think it’s too exhausting to do that. To put things into perspective -your work is your work, and your leisure time is something else.

~~~~~~~

I take it as a man’s duty to restrain himself.

~~~~~~~

‘I take it as a man”s duty to restrain himself.’

~~~~~~~

I think Giles’ journey has been fascinating. I think that’s what made it such a joy to play. The character was never static; you never knew what his deal was. And you still don’t know what his deal is. The conflicts I was given to play are not soapy, they’re not silly things or huge story arcs.

~~~~~~~

I think if you play a character that is fearless, then it’s boring. I think that’s what was so incredible about Harrison Ford, is that he always seemed like he was never going to survive it, he’s always scared, and yet he always does survive it somehow.

~~~~~~~

I think people are shocked when I do other characters. Right now I’m doing a little workshop play in New York and at the Groundlings [an L.A. improv troupe] and I play a completely other character -I think they are shocked when I’m not Jack. Slowly people are seeing outside of the box and realizing that I became an actor to play other roles and not just one role for the rest of my life. I’m writing stuff for myself, too, because some people don’t get that I want to do other things.

~~~~~~~

I think sometimes I’m more fond of doing the research for the character because you learn so much. Sometimes shooting is really difficult because you wake up early and you’re always hurrying. And sometimes I don’t know what I’m doing. I’m here and there.

~~~~~~~

I think that you always have something left, that you take something of the character with you.

~~~~~~~

I think theatre has given me the opportunity to show what a character actor I can be.

~~~~~~~

I think there should be no occasion on which it is absolutely, as a point or rule of law, impossible for a man to redeem his character.
