Aidan Quinn quotes

Really, most of us just focus on what's in front of us. We're too busy putting out the fires of everyday life.

Life is hard for everyone. That's why there's such a nice reward at the end of it.

Genetics play a huge part in who we are. But we also have free will.

I'm not particularly a career-oriented guy. I'm lucky. I can make really interesting films much of the time with interesting people yet be anonymous, have a private life. But, I'd like to have the choice of the better roles.

My thing about looking good is that it should be the character. If I'm playing a character who's concerned about his body - an athlete, say - I'll get in shape. If I'm playing a character who doesn't or wouldn't, I don't. I almost never get in shape for a movie, even though I know it would be a good career move.

Some actors actually think about what they're going to talk about during the interview - they read up and meditate and plan quotes and get all inspired. It's very smart, but it's so planned. I never think to do that.

I'd wear clogs, short pants and ladies' bracelets. I created this aura for myself.

I can't control how people are going to react. I try not to worry about what I can't control.

I mean, I've been stupid in the past, and I've learned from that.

I think my being such a nomad let me into acting. I was always having to create a new image whenever we moved.

I'd sneak out of the house to meet girls at 3:30 a.m.

I would love, more than anything, to do an out-and-out farce with huge physical energy. Just because you're from the minimalist school, it doesn't mean you can't go big.

I'm not a city kind of guy. I'm happiest when I'm tromping through the woods. That's why I don't live in Los Angeles. Being physically away from Hollywood probably loses me a few jobs, but the best ones seek me out.

You should learn to be happy with what you have. Besides, the fact that I'm not a huge star has allowed me to pick and choose the roles I want to do, not the ones some person sitting in a studio office thinks I should do.

Celebrity, to me, is not a thing to seek.

I get to do interesting roles and make a living.

I had to bring myself back down to being a normal person again.

I like the level of fame that I have. You get nice tables in restaurants sometimes, but fame isn't something that I find comfortable.

I loved working with Meryl Streep twice and I've gotten to work with my friend Liam Neeson on several occasions.

I think there's a down-to-earthness with Midwesterners and with people from the Midlands - which is where my family is from - in Ireland.

Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one. John Lennon

If your mind is at work, we're in danger of reproducing another cliche. If we can keep our minds out of it and our thoughts out of it, maybe we'll come up with something original. Peter Falk

I can be a nice person, but if someone is messing with someone I care about, the tougher side comes out a little more. Daniella Alonso
