James Garner quotes

I don't take success very well, because I know it's fleeting. And the next day, it can all fall apart. I know that, too. So I don't get too high, and I don't get too low. You get through the world a lot easier that way.

When I'm pushed, I shove.

Acting is just common sense. It isn't hard if you put yourself aside and just do what the writer wrote.

An hour series is a killer. It's hard on you physically.

Even my stuntman is old.

I spent most of my time playing pool instead of studying.

I think my attitude has always been to put food on the table.

I think people like to see a little larceny in their heroes.

I was a Depression kid, growing up in Oklahoma.

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

To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all. Oscar Wilde
