Alfredo James Pacino (April 25, 1940)

I’m the same now as I’ve always been - sort of a recluse. People resent me for remaining myself when they think I should be acting like a superstar. I never wanted to be an actor and I don’t particularly enjoy it. I have to act. There just isn’t anything else for me.

RIP Mickey Rooney [x]

You’ve got to recognize, there will never be another you. It has nothing to do with ego; it happens to be the truth. There will never be another person the same. There’ll never be another you. There’ll never be another me … And there’ll never be another show like this!

Eldred Gregory Peck (April 5, 1916 - June 12, 2003)

You have to dream, you have to have a vision, and you have to set a goal for yourself that might even scare you a little because sometimes that seems far beyond your reach. Then I think you have to develop a kind of resistance to rejection, and to the disappointments that are sure to come your way.

Peachy: Why, even now, I wouldn’t change places with the viceroy himself…if it meant giving up my memories…
