Normal Things Quotes
Ignoring fame was my rebellion, in a funny way. I was insistent on being normal and doing normal things. It probably wasn't advisable to go to college in America and room with a complete stranger.

In Britain, they have a lot of laws to protect you, and we enforce them very strongly so that our children can stay private figures, and the British press leave us alone, which is great.

Philip Seymour Hoffman

Fame is a funny thing. I like doing normal things. I like going to fairs. I like going to ball games.

It's always there.
I try to take normal things - whether it's a serious subject or something as obscure as a piece of toast - and put a very weird twist on them.
