We are going to finish this picture just the way I want it... because you cannot compromise an artist's vision.
I know certainly, when one job draws to a close, that I feel I'm simply never going to work again. No one will ever want me for anything ever again. I think that's a vulnerable moment in every actor's life, and it happens every time you finish a film.
Any finish at Le Mans is great but every time I go to Le Mans my mission is to win.

When I finish something, I want it out that day. Pop music is like the daily paper. Its got to be there then, not six months later.
I've always been shy, but I see that as a good thing because it kept me focused on music. When I was in seventh grade, I asked my parents for a mobile recording system for Christmas, and I got it. I didn't come out of my room for years after that. I'd get invited to the movies and I'd say, 'I'm gonna finish a couple of demos.'

It was nice to finish up Stanford. I think I always felt that I would be there for four years and graduate, and definitely didn't want to leave early. A degree was definitely a plus, and I was having a lot of fun in school. But after football, you know, I don't know. I really did enjoy studying architecture; it was a blast.

Too many pieces of music finish too long after the end.
I can walk into a bookshop and point out a number of books that I find very unattractive in what they say. But it doesn't occur to me to burn the bookshop down.

Mary J. Blige
I've just finished my 20th book this past year and I'm working on my 21st book about the Middle East right now that I'll finish this year.

I'm an artist too.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
