But there's no point in looking back and saying I was unlucky.
I have to have three or four books going simultaneously. If I'm not impressed in the first 20 pages, I don't bother reading the rest, especially with novels. I'm not a book-club style reader. I'm not looking for life lessons or wanting people to think I'm smart because I'm reading a certain book.

Philip Seymour Hoffman

I used to not be confident. My father certainly didn't add to my confidence. When I was 17 or 18, I was voted the most beautiful girl in England by the association of press photographers. When they called Daddy for a comment, he said, 'I'm amazed. She's a nice looking girl, but nothing special.'
Everyone's so interior now, they're not really looking around them. They're on their phones.
All I'm ever looking for in my work in general is honesty and truth and people being real to themselves.

People are always looking for the single magic bullet that will totally change everything. There is no single magic bullet.
During 65 years, I have walked the path of duty and discipline... And today, looking back at that long path of service, my soldier's heart stirs and murmurs from deep within: Thank you. Thank you, my homeland.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
