Ed Asner quotes
Never stand still. Only stand still enough to learn, and once you stop learning in that stance, move off. Always keep yourself engaged, in theater, in whatever job you can get. If you can't get an acting job, then go backstage. Or take tickets. But be around actors because that is where you will primarily learn.
I don't believe in God, though I'm not prepared to call myself an atheist either. You know the old phrase: 'There are no atheists in foxholes.' I've never been in a foxhole, and if I ever find myself in a foxhole, I'll let you know if I believe in God or not.
I regard myself as a beautiful musical instrument, and my role is to contribute that instrument to scripts worthy of it. And hopefully the music we play will be about decent human beings fighting against disease, fighting against corruption, fighting for the truth... and fighting for a day when all our jails are empty, and all our schools are full.
Never thought acting was something you could make a living at. It wasn't until I was in college, and got a lead in a play, that I began to realize I might just be able to blunder into this profession.
