I go on vacation strictly to relax - to kick back with a good book and do nothing else but read, sleep and eat.
I just wanted to be an actor. It's better to be well-rounded.
Nobody is trying to save energy. We're trying to shift our use of fuel. Forget saving energy; if we get the right kind of energy, there are endless amounts.
In my career? Me. I'm the boss. I'm the end all and be all. I'm the alpha and omega in that.
And that if you become a star, people are going to go to see you. If you remain an actor, they're going to go and see the story you're in.
We are all part of American history. Dr. Martin Luther King is not a black hero. He is an American hero. ... The world needs his message today more than ever before.
Ben - Sir Ben - is always a lift. He's always interesting to watch, so you just try and remember your lines.
The odds are lousy that I actually said something attributed to me.
I've always been really hot on westerns. All my life growing up, cowboy, cowboy, cowboy.
If your life turns out to be good and you have a tremendous amount of luck in your life, it's a good thing to turn around and make it work for others.
I have to deal with being famous. Sometimes I have to tell people I don't do autographs, thank you very much. At certain places, I refuse to have my photograph taken.
The bigger point here is that golf is a good metaphor for one's life. The challenge of golf for me is trying to learn new rules. It's something you always have to work at; you don't get perfect at golf. It's the never-ending quest for betterment.
Someone's always going to come down on the side of the fence.
You measure yourself by the people who measure themselves by you.

I've just never been the kind of actor that things have stayed with. I've never needed to carry a character off stage.
Working on stage is really a great voice developer.
Writing I think, out of what all of us do, writing is the hardest. You're the only who start with nothing except what's up here. You do that. It's really hard I think, acting is not.
When I was getting close to being accepted for pilot training, I was allowed to get in a jet airplane. I sat there looking at all those switches and dials and I got the distinct feeling that I was sitting in the nose of bomb. I realized my fantasies of flying and fighting were just that - fantasies.
Anyone who spends a significant amount of time with me finds me disagreeable.
I'm easy going for the most part but sometimes in the morning if I didn't sleep well I can be kind of grumpy. But my grumpiness doesn't have that much to do with my dissatisfaction with my station in life.
If you sat down and you wrote a script, you may write something that's way beyond what you've ever seen me do, but if you thought of me to do it, I would be flattered to be asked to do something other than be wise.
...if we get the right kind of energy, there are endless amounts. I think we should be developing every kind of alternative fuel that is available to us. That includes hydrogen to soybeans, from solar to wind. Whatever we can find that is going to help us clean up the environment we should be workin

Everybody works the same, but the preparation very often may be different. You cannot work differently. You have to say the words that were written on the page, and you have to make your marks. That's the work.

You whine like a mule.
I'm making a great effort because sometimes life is not enjoyable. Sometimes it's painful and sometimes it's stressful, sometimes it's agonizing even, so I think once you get around those humps: strive for pleasure and peace.
You don't know how much you appreciate your privacy until you don't have it.
It [love about acting] is all about role playing - the same thing you do when you're a kid, when you play with dolls or toys and make up stories. I never grew out of it.
