Jim Carrey quotes

If you've got a talent, protect it.

One thing I hope I'll never be is drunk with my own power. And anybody who says I am will never work in this town again.

I've arrived at the place if I'm not taking a career risk, I'm not happy. If I'm scared, then I know I'm being challenged.

I don't make it in regular channels, and that's okay for me.

I'm the first to admit this whole salary thing is getting out of control. In the final analysis, it's still about the work.

My family kinda hit the skids. We were experiencing poverty at that point. We all got a job, where the whole family had to work as security guards and janitors. And I just got angry.

The money can be a hindrance to someone like me because the danger is that you start thinking, 'Is that a $20 million take?' That kind of thing, and being self-critical.

Behind every great man is a woman rolling her eyes.

It is better to risk starving to death then surrender. If you give up on your dreams, what's left?

If you aren't in the moment, you are either looking forward to uncertainty, or back to pain and regret.

My focus is to forget the pain of life. Forget the pain, mock the pain, reduce it. And laugh.

Life opens up opportunities to you, and you either take them or you stay afraid of taking them.

I'm very serious about no alcohol, no drugs. Life is too beautiful.

I don't think human beings learn anything without desperation. Desperation is a necessary ingredient to learning anything or creating anything. Period. If you ain't desperate at some point, you ain't interesting.

Maybe there is no actual place called hell. Maybe hell is just having to listen to our grandparents breathe through their noses when they're eating sandwiches.

I love playing ego and insecurity combined.

I praticed making faces in the mirror and it would drive my mother crazy. She used to scare me by saying that I was going to see the devil if I kept looking in the mirror. That fascinated me even more, of course.

I wake up some mornings and sit and have my coffee and look out at my beautiful garden, and I go, 'Remember how good this is. Because you can lose it.'

I absolutely want to have a career where you make'em laugh and make'em cry. It's all theater.

Either you're the one erasing or you're the one being erased.
