Jimmy Nail quotes

I was racing through life, utterly confused and angry. I don't know if I was out of control; it was more like I felt frustrated with myself and everything I saw happening around me.

I went from being totally unknown to getting stopped every time I went out. I always wanted to be successful, but I have never wanted to become a celebrity. I never, ever, craved that.

My definition of a friend is somebody who adores you even though they know the things you're most ashamed of. Jodie Foster

The difference between a hero and a coward is one step sideways. Gene Hackman

If only media people would stop reaching for the low-hanging fruit, which is cynicism and pessimism, and stopped trying so hard to be hip and cool and have a swagger. Emilio Estevez
