The arts and humanities are vastly more important in troubled times.
When I started acting, I hoped I could make some kind of positive contribution to this world.

That's pretty awesome, right?
In the arts the way in which an idea is rendered, and the manner in which it is expressed, is much more important than the idea itself.
As a father, I always want my son to be perfect. When he was young, I tried to train him in martial arts, but he said, 'I don't want to become like Bruce Lee's son, with everybody telling me how good my father was.' I just think my son is too lazy.
Music must take rank as the highest of the fine arts - as the one which, more than any other, ministers to the human spirit.
I was born and grew up in Phoenix, and I left there when I was 17 to go to Interlochen Arts Academy - a boarding school in Michigan - for a year, and then I went to college for a year at The Boston Conservatory and landed the 'Spring Awakening' tour midway through my freshman year, which was pretty cool.

I'm from a working-class family. We didn't have a lot, but we had the arts. You're talking to a guy who is making a living at doing what he loves doing - acting, singing and dancing.

The truth is that throughout my careers in both chess and the martial arts, I often knew that my rivals were more naturally gifted than me - either with their mental machines or their bodies.
