The good thing about acting is that it always keeps you on your toes… It’s not like any other job where you can go in and do the same thing as yesterday.
Good advice is something a man gives when he is too old to set a bad example.
The only thing to do with good advice is to pass it on. It is never of any use to oneself.
Good advice is always certain to be ignored, but that’s no reason not to give it.
My main piece of advice would be don’t worry about being published – just write a really good book, but also don’t be afraid to write a bad book. Give yourself permission to fail, and don’t be afraid.
A good scare is worth more to a man than good advice.
Everyone finds their own version of Charles Dickens. The child-victim, the irrepressibly ambitious young man, the reporter, the demonic worker, the tireless walker. The radical, the protector of orphans, helper of the needy, man of good works, the republican. The hater and the lover of America. The giver of parties, the magician, the traveler.
