Chris Evans quotes

For a long time all I wanted for Christmas were books about outdoor survival. I was convinced that the woods were calling me. I camped a lot, I took classes. At 18, I told myself if I don't live in the woods by myself by the time I'm 25, I have failed.

But my happiness in this world - my level of peace - is never going to be dictated by acting.

I decided to make 'Captain America' because I realized I wasn't doing the film because it terrified me. You can't make decisions based on fear.

I swear to God, if you saw me when I am by myself in the woods, I'm a lunatic. I sing, I dance.

I'm not that great with press sometimes.

I've managed to do movies and still keep a lifestyle where I can go to ballgames, go to a grocery store like everybody else.

I hate myself in interviews. All of a sudden, you stop and you're like, 'Chris, how dare you?' I don't live in Darfur. I have both legs. But you can't walk around all the time being like, 'I'm so grateful I'm not in Darfur.'

I always say that the times in my life when I've been happiest are the times when I've seen, like, a sunset.

Anyone who's had a tattoo knows once you get your first one, as you're walking out the door, you're planning the next.

The comic book world is so dangerous, you know what I mean? You say one thing and people - they're ravenous - they are very opinionated fans. But they're great fans.

What if I couldn't handle people's opinions of me? I know that shouldn't dictate a person's degree of peace or happiness in life, but the problem is, I chose a business saturated in judgment.

I like girls who are self-deprecating. I like girls who make fun of themselves. If you can't poke fun at yourself, what are you? I just want someone with a good soul. That's about it. The rest I'm really flexible on.

The point is that when I see a sunset or a waterfall or something, for a split second it's so great, because for a little bit I'm out of my brain, and it's got nothing to do with me. I'm not trying to figure it out, you know what I mean? And I wonder if I can somehow find a way to maintain that mind stillness.

All my good movies, nobody sees.

Every guy I know has some sort of freak injury in their body.

For the youth, the indignation of most things will just surge as each birthday passes.

I am just enjoying my youth but I want to settle down eventually.

I don't keep a journal.

I emote. I love things so much.

I like wet hair and sweatpants. I like sneakers and ponytails.
