James Dean quotes

Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

There is no way to be truly great in this world. We are all impaled on the crook of conditioning.

I think the one thing this picture shows that's new is the psychological disproportion of the kids' demands on the parents. Parents are often at fault, but the kids have some work to do, too.

If a man can bridge the gap between life and death, if he can live on after he's dead, then maybe he was a great man.

An actor must interpret life, and in order to do so must be willing to accept all the experiences life has to offer. In fact, he must seek out more of life than life puts at his feet.

The gratification comes in the doing, not in the results.

Trust and belief are two prime considerations. You must not allow yourself to be opinionated.

Only the gentle are ever really strong.

To my way of thinking, an actor's course is set even before he's out of the cradle.

But you can't show some far off idyllic conception of behavior if you want the kids to come and see the picture. You've got to show what it's really like, and try to reach them on their own grounds.

The adrenaline of a live performance is unlike anything in film or theater. I can see why it's so addictive. Gwyneth Paltrow

When I look around the world, I don't see too many damsels in distress. If they're a damsel in distress, they're manipulating some guy to help them. Sigourney Weaver

Let us be the ones who say we do not accept that a child dies every three seconds simply because he does not have the drugs you and I have. Let us be the ones to say we are not satisfied that your place of birth determines your right for life. Let us be outraged, let us be loud, let us be bold. Brad Pitt age
