Some suggestions for you :

If you live a life of make-believe, your life isn't worth anything until you do something that does challenge your reality. And to me, sailing the open ocean is a real challenge, because it's life or death.

Once you've gotten the job, there's nothing to it. If you're an actor, you're an actor. Doing it is not the hard part. The hard part is getting to do it.

I am going to stop calling you a white man and I'm going to ask you to stop calling me a black man.

As you grow in this business, you learn how to do more with less.

Is there a movie I think I should have won the Oscar for? Yeah. All of them.

I want to thank everybody and anybody who ever had anything to do with the making of this picture.

I'm not intimidated by lead roles. I'm better in them. I don't feel pressure. I feel released at times like that. That's what I'm born to do.

My parents were working in a hospital in Memphis. But I didn't live there for any length of time that I remember. The first thing I remember is the town in Mississippi that I live in now, Charleston.

When I was doing theater, I was very successful at believing that I was great, God's gift to the theater.

The accident was a horrible thing - but that horrible thing made Chris, at the end of his life, Superman. It's a happy irony if there is such a thing. I'm proud to have known him.

I'm not one for blaspheming, but that one made me laugh.

Learning how to be still, to really be still and let life happen - that stillness becomes a radiance.
