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

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

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.

We had problems like all families but we had a lot of love. I was extremely loved. We always felt we had each other.

I feel like I want to take care of everyone and I also feel this terrible guilt if I am unable to. And I have felt this way ever since all this success started.

It was such a leap in my career when 'Truman Show' came along. It's always been a long process for me insofar as recognition goes, but that's OK because you appreciate it when it comes.

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.

What I have in common with the character in 'Truman' is this incredible need to please people. I feel like I want to take care of everyone and I also feel this terrible guilt if I am unable to. And I have felt this way ever since all this success started.

Behind every great man is a woman rolling her eyes.

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.
