I think actors go along a continuum from Simon Callow down to kind of Ross Kemp, and I like to think of myself as the Ross Kemp of comedy. He's very good in 'East Enders' because he plays a version of himself. I think I can play a version of myself - that's about all I can do.
Every man is more than just himself; he also represents the unique, the very special and always significant and remarkable point at which the world's phenomena intersect, only once in this way, and never again.
A fella who accepts himself and is relaxed into who he is - that appeals to people.
He fashions evil for himself who does evil to another, and an evil plan does mischief to the planner.
The man who does evil to another does evil to himself, and the evil counsel is most evil for him who counsels it.
He is senseless who would match himself against a stronger man; for he is deprived of victory and adds suffering to disgrace.

The Jewish people asked nothing of its sons except not to be denied. The world is grateful to every great man when he brings it something; only the paternal home thanks the son who brings nothing but himself.
A man who makes trouble for others is also making trouble for himself.
An Englishman never enjoys himself, except for a noble purpose.
Man is most nearly himself when he achieves the seriousness of a child at play.
Jesus was a perfect example of following authority. He was subject to His earthly parents; he subjected himself to the laws of the land, and as God, he had the power not to do any of it.

Advancement and promotion in Mystic Masonry is not dependent on favor; it cannot be given till it has been earned and the candidate has stored in himself the power to rise, any more than a pistol can be fired till it has been loaded.
A man nearly always loves for other reasons than he thinks. A lover is apt to be as full of secrets from himself as is the object of his love from him.
