Mark Hamill quotes

When you say 'comic book' in America, people think of Mickey Mouse, and Archie. It has a connotation of juvenile.

I'm surprised at people who have a passion for Mitt Romney, because he's taken every position there is. I would cast this guy as the president in a heartbeat... but I just cannot believe a word he says.

I love the fact that, one time, my face was on the back of a cereal box - probably 3-CPO's - and it was a mask where you cut out the eye holes and put a string through the side. It makes me feel like I'm 11 years old all over again.

One of the things that I love about voiceover is that it's a situation where - because you're not encumbered by being seen - it's liberating. You're able to make broad choices that you would never make if you were on camera.

I have failed 'Star Wars' trivia tests. People come up to me at conventions and use terms that I've never heard of.

You know how there are some stars out there who know how to market themselves? I don't have that.

You know those actors who have a sense for how they should be used? I don't think I have that.

I don't think it's fair to compare Dick Cheney to Vader - it's unfair to Vader.

In high school, I had to hide my comic book side, my nerd side from the civilian world so they wouldn't categorize me. They would try to marginalize me for what I like. I tried to give it up, believe me. I tried to kick the habit. But there's too much I liked about it to give it up completely.

'Star Wars' is more fairy tale than true science fiction.

Part of me always longed to do just one more film and see what Luke would be like now that he's on the level of Obi-Wan Kenobi, the student having become the master. But it was not meant to be.

Acting in 'Star Wars' I felt like a raisin in a giant fruit salad, and I didn't even know who the cantaloupes were.

I debated in high school! If you told things that weren't true or just made things out of whole cloth, you were penalized. It's too bad they don't apply the same standards to presidential candidates as they do to high school students.

I have a sneaking suspicion that if there were a way to make movies without actors, George Lucas would do it.

So much of life is what you roll and where you land.

When I was involved with 'Star Wars,' I was very interested in all the backstories, and I used to pepper George with all kinds of questions about anything that crossed my mind, because I was very, very into it. But when the job came to an end, I had to move on.

I love actors, number one. There's probably nobody that you could name that I don't like, depending on what it is they're in.

I'm so much like Luke Skywalker I guess I always will be.

People think being remembered most for one character is a negative thing, but I don't. I never expected to be remembered for anything!

Character roles only indicate that they're very different from who you are as a person, and for me, it's fun hiding behind characters that are so unlike who I am.

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

The lecturer should give the audience full reason to believe that all his powers have been exerted for their pleasure and instruction. Michael Faraday quotes

I am indebted to my father for living, but to my teacher for living well. Alexander the Great quotes
