Randy Quaid quotes

Acting's more of a business for me now.

I just always wanted to be left alone to go into a creative space.

I love Canada.

I love my brother. I miss my brother.

I love playing characters that are bigger than life and maybe have a darker side that they present to the world. Those are good characters.

I went through this delayed-adolescence thing. I didn't want to be tied down to a family.

I would never walk off any show.

I would not do anything to besmirch my reputation any further than it has already been.

I'm not crazy. I play a lot of crazy characters, but I'm an actor.

I've been racketeered on.

If you don't stick up for what's yours, and defend what's yours... what are you?

It's possible for people to gain control of every facet of your life.

Just about every actor wants to be a Disney cartoon voice at some point.

Now with the Internet, a celebrity is fair game, and it's all designed to sell advertising space.

What I wish more than anything is that I could start getting press about my work as an actor. That is what I do. I'm not a criminal.

I am being embezzled by a monstrous ring of accountants, estate planners and lawyers who are mercilessly slandering me and trying to kill my career and, I believe, murder me in order to gain control of my royalties.

I don't trust Santa Barbara as far as I can spit. I am afraid that if I went back there, it's possible that I could be run through their system, their judicial system, and wind up in some county jail where I could be killed and I'm not gonna take that chance.

My finances have been decimated by a group of people, such as my ex-attorney, my ex-business manager, and an estate planner, specifically. And they have conspired together to - to co-op my corporations, put in trustees without my knowledge.

When I was a kid and the carnival would come to the shopping centre, I'd go down and talk to all the people running the rides. I like that whole lifestyle, moving from town to town in a nomadic existence.
