Matt LeBlanc quotes




I love all the guys on Friends but I just think Joey is so cute! Such a simple and sweet character. I don't watch the show "Joey" though because it just isn't the same.

Quotes from Matt LeBlanc:

Misery is manifold. The wretchedness of the earth is multiform.
Matt LeBlanc


The more cynical you become, the better off you'll be.

David Schwimmer Quotes




Another one of my favorite actors from my favorite tv show. Here are some quotes from David Schwimmer:


Can I tell you how strange it is to look in your rearview mirror and see guys in cars tailing you?
David Schwimmer



I didn't ask to be followed by five video guys from 'Hard Copy' that harass you with bright lights in your face and ask you questions and try to incite you. I didn't ask for that. I never went into acting for that, or to be in the public eye simply by walking down the street, not being able to eat a meal without being interrupted.
David Schwimmer



I don't tolerate any kind of dishonesty. I bring a lot to the table with my relationships, so I really expect the same.
David Schwimmer



I find America falling in love with a TV show flattering and interesting, but at the same time a little sad.
David Schwimmer



I had a mustache when I was 13.
David Schwimmer



I have a lot of girlfriends whom I've never been involved with. Those kinds of lines get drawn pretty early on.
David Schwimmer



I like to grow as an actor, and you can do that by playing parts that are unfamiliar to you and uncomfortable.
David Schwimmer



I spend half my time just living my life, and the other half analyzing it.
David Schwimmer



I was a geek in high school.
David Schwimmer



I'm fiercely loyal to my friends, and I really cherish my friendships.
David Schwimmer



If there's something I want, I go for it. I just think about how I'm going to go for it.
David Schwimmer



It's a job - someone's gotta kiss Jennifer Aniston. The reality is, Jennifer and I can do our job well because we truly are friends. But when the day's over, she goes home to her boyfriend and I go home to a magazine.
David Schwimmer


It's really important to me not to be known as Ross when I'm 60.
David Schwimmer


My favorite thing about my family is that my sister and I will go over to our parents' house on the weekend and play canasta.
David Schwimmer


Oh my God, people really think I'm Ross!
David Schwimmer


There are certain pressures and things that change your life to a degree that, in the cost benefit analysis that constantly goes on, sometimes makes you think, 'Maybe I should just leave.'
David Schwimmer


There are certain sacrifices that you make, and you feel like the only compensation you have as an actor is financial.
David Schwimmer


There's nothing like a play. It's so immediate and every performance is different. As an actor, you have the most control over what the audience is seeing.
David Schwimmer


With the success of the last three or so years, when a lot of people start treating you differently, there's a danger that you may start to think of yourself differently. You rely on your friends to say, 'Hey, wake up!'
David Schwimmer


You're only as good as the sum of your parts, and one person can't be a team.
David Schwimmer

Matthew Perry Quotes



While we are on the topic of my favorite actors, I have to pay homage to the men of "Friends." It is the only tv show that I can watch over and over again in reruns.


First up, quotes from Matthew Perry:

Actually, as a kid I wanted to be a tennis player, but I wasn't good enough, so I became an actor. Since then, I've just been lip-locking with gorgeous babes. So, let that be a lesson to all you little tennis players out there.
Matthew Perry

After I got my first laugh on stage, I was hooked.
Matthew Perry

As an actor, being on autopilot is the worst thing possible.
Matthew Perry

Chandler's the guy everybody thinks will do well with women, but he thinks too much and says the wrong thing.
Matthew Perry

Everything is just falling into place for me right now. I just turned 30, which I thought I was going to be bummed about, but I'm not.
Matthew Perry

I can tell if someone is talking to me because I'm on "Friends" or cause they just think I'm neat. You know I don't think I've ever spent more than five or ten minutes with somebody who was ogling me because they recognized me from the show.
Matthew Perry

I love the idea of "the one" but I actually believe that there isn't a Miss Right. There are 12,000 Miss Rights out there and it's all timing.
Matthew Perry

I realized by the time I turned 30, which happened this year, that I would be going out with girls and they would think I was really funny, but I would know absolutely nothing about them. I decided that's just not the way to go. I have tried to listen more and get to know the person I'm with.
Matthew Perry

I really lived life to its fullest and that got me in trouble from time to time.
Matthew Perry

I used to be a real prince charming if I went on a date with a girl. But then I'd get to where I was likely to have a stroke from the stress of keeping up my act. I've since learned the key to a good date is to pay attention on her.
Matthew Perry

I was like: I'm going to ask Julia Roberts out but I'm going to be very nervous about it. Then she said yes, I got even more nervous.
Matthew Perry

I was the coolest guy of the non-cool crowd.
Matthew Perry

I'm a sensitive guy. If you are a woman and you're in any kind of emotional duress and you write a song about it, I'll buy your album.
Matthew Perry


I've just found out there are pages on the internet dedicated to whether I'm gay or not.
Matthew Perry

If there's a silence in a room I'll try to fill it as soon as humanly possible.
Matthew Perry

The funniest thing is when somebody says "Look I've no idea who you are but my friend said you are on a show and I just wanted to introduce myself" you know that they are lying! Those people can just get out of my way.
Matthew Perry

The goal is to have to do the shot again because the camera guy shook a little bit as he was laughing. Without that happening, I'm not happy because there's nothing better for me than a world that everybody's just trying to make each other laugh.
Matthew Perry

The key to sitcom success is miserable people. If you see a happy couple, it's just gone, like when Sam and Diane got together on Cheers.
Matthew Perry

There are two ways to go when you hit that crossroads in your life: There is the bad way, when you sort of give up, and then there is the really hard way, when you fight back. I went the hard way and came out of it okay. Now, I'm sitting here and doing great.
Matthew Perry

Vicodin, I got addicted to that little pill. The reason I don't talk about it too much in the press is because it isn't funny, and I love to be funny in interviews. If you joke about that period in your life, it doesn't seem right.
Matthew Perry

Well, I was lucky enough to be involved in about 19 failures at an early age, so I'm realistic about the success I'm having and how quickly it can go away. What's important is to be smart about it.
Matthew Perry

When I read the script of Chandler, I thought WOW I can really shake hands with this guy. Chandlers a sarcastic guy, dry, funny - a guy who's not comfortable unless he's joking and hiding the emotional stuff that's going on with him. And Yeah, I can relate to that a bit.
Matthew Perry


Could he BE more like Chandler?

John Cusack quotes




Ok, so I'm a child of the 80's. I love John Cusack though, he has always been one of my favorite actors. He is not your typical Hollywood type and he really chooses and eclectic mix of roles. Cool guy!


John Cusack quotes:


Celebrity is death --- celebrity -- that's the worst thing that can happen to an actor.
Cusack, John


I was a teen star. That's disgusting enough.
-John Cusack


There are some good people. But a good chunk of them will lie for no reason at all - it'll be ten o'clock and they'll tell you it's nine. You're looking at the clock and you can't even fathom why they're lying. They just lie because that's what they do.
-John Cusack


Do I listen to pop music because I'm miserable or am I miserable because listen to pop music?
-John Cusack


The making of a great compilation tape, like breaking up, is hard to do and takes ages longer than it might seem.
- John Cusack

Daniel Radcliffe Quotes




He may be young, but he is already an amazing actor! I hope he will finish out the Harry Potter film series because I really can't accept anyone else as Harry! I saw Goblet of Fire today and he was wonderful (as usual.) Great movie all around. I think I still like the last movie (Prizoner of Azkaban) the best but this one was well done in general.

Here's some Daniel Radcliffe quotes to enjoy:


"Thing is, it's very easy to be righteous from a distance. It's his life. It's not my business to say what is wrong or right."
- Daniel Radcliffe


"Fans are really important for me. And if they take pains to write me, it's the minimum that I answer myself."
-Daniel Radcliffe


"I'm thrilled of the acceptance I get abroad. The people are so hearty, warm and grateful and I feel privileged having seen so many countries and some of the greatest monuments."
-Daniel Radcliffe


"I think I'm highly normal. I'm attending school after acting, I'm going out with friends, going to the cinema - I'm just doing everything a normal teenager does. People think I can't leave the house without being in a crowd of fans - but that's not true. I'm able to do more things than people might think."
- Daniel Radcliffe

Morgan Freeman Quotes



Without intending to, I sort of stumbled across a theme for my quote blog recently; quotes from my favorite actors.

First there was Johnny Depp, then Tom Hanks. Now I present you with Morgan Freeman. He is so very talented! Not very quotable though it seems. Only could find a few!


"You do what you are...You’re born with a gift. If not that, then you get good at something along the way. And what you’re good at. you don’t take for granted."
-Morgan Freeman


"I have to remind myself that some birds aren't meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up DOES rejoice. Still, the place you live in is that much more drab and empty that they're gone. I guess I just miss my friend."
- Morgan Freeman


"Ernest Hemingway once wrote, 'The world is a fine place and worth fighting for.' I agree with the second part."
- Morgan Freeman



I always enjoy Morgan Freeman's performances and in my opinion, he has the perfect narrator's voice!

Tom Hanks Quotes




Tom Hanks is one of my very favorite actors. I even liked him in Bosom Buddies!


E-mail is far more convenient than the telephone, as far as I'm concerned. I would throw my phone away if I could get away with it.
Tom Hanks

From now on we live in a world where man has walked on the Moon. It's not a miracle; we just decided to go.
Tom Hanks

Growing up in northern California has had a big influence on my love and respect for the outdoors. When I lived in Oakland, we would think nothing of driving to Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz one day and then driving to the foothills of the Sierras the next day.
Tom Hanks

I do the work that I think is absolutely fascinating. There's not nearly as much distraction for me now as there used to be.
Tom Hanks

I love what I do for a living, it's the greatest job in the world, but you have to survive an awful lot of attention that you don't truly deserve and you have to live up to your professional responsibilities and I'm always trying to balance that with what is really important.
Tom Hanks

I must say that I do wrestle with the amount of money I make, but at the end of the day what am I gonna say? I took less money so Rupert Murdoch could have more?
Tom Hanks

I will entertain anything; it doesn't matter. You know, it's not obviously about the price, it's not about who, it's kind of about when and what. It's material, that's all.
Tom Hanks


If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. It's the hard that makes it great.
Tom Hanks

If you have to have a job in this world, a high-priced movie star is a pretty good gig.
Tom Hanks

My favorite traditional Christmas movie that I like to watch is All Quiet on the Western Front. It's just not December without that movie in my house.
Tom Hanks


Prior to Saving Private Ryan I never worked with men. I was always working with some babe, and it was always about falling in love, and it just got turned around. I'm not looking for any particular kind of story. I wait until it comes across my desk.
Tom Hanks

That's what's nice about directing a film and having it done: There's nothing more I can do about it. It's done. That's it. All I can do is let it go and hope that people are kind to it.
Tom Hanks

The year I was born, 1956, was the peak year for babies being born, and there are more people essentially our age than anybody else. We could crush these new generations if we decided too.
Tom Hanks

There is a huge amount of stuff I'm simply not available for. If they want to make a movie in a certain amount of time and I just can't, I don't even want to see that stuff because if it's really great, I'd be bummed out. So actually I think I say no to a lot less stuff than I used to simply because I don't see it.
Tom Hanks

There is something basic about protecting land by taking it off the market. People should be able to enjoy where they live while at the same time protect the plants and animals around them.
Tom Hanks

There was nothing to react to except wind and trees [in Cast Away]. It was like making a silent movie.
Tom Hanks

There's a difference between solitude and loneliness. I can understand the concept of being a monk for a while.
Tom Hanks

Johnny Depp!







Ok, so I was thinking about Charlie and the Chocolate factory coming to DVD tomorrow and I admit that my mind wandered off to Captain Jack! After all, that is my favorite Johnny Depp role. In fact, I may have to get out my "Hotties of the Carribean" DVD and watch it now that I have brought it up!

Anyway, I was going to do an entry about Charlie and the Chocolate Factory quotes, but I think it has officially turned in to a Johnny Depp post. Forgive me while I stray from the usual topics here.

This one is just for me! :) (well... and for all the other pirate lovin ladies I know!)


Some classic Johnny Depp quotes:

Am I a romantic? I've seen Wuthering Heights ten times. I'm a romantic.
Johnny Depp

Anything I've done up till May 27th 1999 was kind of an illusion, existing without living. My daughter, the birth of my daughter, gave me life.
Johnny Depp

As a teenager I was so insecure. I was the type of guy that never fitted in because he never dared to choose. I was convinced I had absolutely no talent at all. For nothing. And that thought took away all my ambition too.
Johnny Depp

For me, ambition has become a dirty word. I prefer hunger. To be hungry-great. To have hopes, dreams-great.
Johnny Depp

France, and the whole of Europe have a great culture and an amazing history. Most important thing though is that people there know how to live! In America they've forgotten all about it. I'm afraid that the American culture is a disaster.
Johnny Depp

I am doing things that are true to me. The only thing I have a problem with is being labeled.
Johnny Depp

I don't pretend to be captain weird. I just do what I do.
Johnny Depp

I guess I'm attracted to these off beat roles because my life has been a bit abnormal. The only thing I have a problem with is being labeled.
Johnny Depp

I pretty much try to stay in a constant state of confusion just because of the expression it leaves on my face.
Johnny Depp

I remember in that red leisure suit I sort of felt like a Pizza Hut employee, and the white one was the ultimate, with the white turtleneck collar, that was the ultimate in bad taste.
Johnny Depp

I think the thing to do is enjoy the ride while you're on it.
Johnny Depp

I'll never understand the animal, the machine of Hollywood business. And I don't want to understand it. It's like joining a club, a clique just because everyone else is in it. You don't have any particular interest in it, and it has nothing to do with who you are as a person. You just join it because it's the thing to do.
Johnny Depp

I'm not Blockbuster Boy.
Johnny Depp

I'm not sure I'm adult yet.
Johnny Depp

I'm shy, paranoid, whatever word you want to use. I hate fame. I've done everything I can to avoid it.
Johnny Depp


It's all kinds of these profound things crashing on you when your child arrives into the world. It's like you've met your reason to live.
Johnny Depp

It's good to experience Hollywood in short bursts, I guess. Little snippets. I don't think I can handle being here all the time, it's pretty nutty.
Johnny Depp

Marlon Brando is maybe the greatest actor of the last two centuries. But his mind is much more important than the acting thing. The way that he looks at things, doesn't judge things, the way that he assesses things. He's as important as, uh... who's important today? Jesus, not many people... Stephen Hawking!
Johnny Depp

That's the interesting thing about becoming a father. Suddenly you universally have something in common with other people. I can be sitting next to a very straight, humorless businessman or stockbroker type on an airplane and we'll just start talking about kids. And that conversation last three or four hours.
Johnny Depp

The beauty, the poetry of the fear in their eyes. I didn't mind going to jail for, what, five, six hours? It was absolutely worth it.
Johnny Depp

The fact that I am the dad is the most surprising thing. I love my family very much. And here's the part where I become the cliche father: I have never in my life thought it was possible to feel such deep love, such an incredible connection to this amazing little human being. She's an angel.
Johnny Depp

The only creatures that are evolved enough to convey pure love are dogs and infants.
Johnny Depp

The quality of life is so different in France. There is the possibility of living a simple life. I would never contemplate raising my daughter in LA. I would never raise any child there.
Johnny Depp

There are necessary evils. Money is an important thing in terms of representing freedom in our world. And now I have a daughter to think about. It's really the first time I've thought about the future and what it could be.
Johnny Depp

Trips to the dentist - I like to postpone that kind of thing.
Johnny Depp

With any part you play, there is a certain amount of yourself in it. There has to be, otherwise it's just not acting. It's lying.
Johnny Depp

You use your money to buy privacy because during most of your life you aren't allowed to be normal.
Johnny Depp


Here's a Johnny Depp fan site

Find pictures of Johnny Depp at art.com


Finally, my favorite Johnny Depp quote:

If there's any message to my work, it is ultimately that it's OK to be different, that it's good to be different, that we should question ourselves before we pass judgment on someone who looks different, behaves different, talks different, is a different color.
Johnny Depp

Good message Johnny!

Gratitude quotes



photo by Kathy Jones


November is a time for gratitude, and I want to make this Thanksgiving season one where I remember to be grateful for all that I have. Here are some great quotes on gratitude:

"Thank God--every morning when you get up--that you have something to do which must be done, whether you like it or not. Being forced to work, and forced to do your best, will breed in you a hundred virtues which the idle never know."
~ Charles Kingsley ~


"No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks."
~ Unknown ~


"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom."
~ Marcel Proust ~


"What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity.
These are but trifles, to be sure; but, scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable."
~ Joseph Addison ~


"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow."
~ Melody Beattie ~


"Blessed are those that can give without remembering and receive without forgetting."
~ Author Unknown ~


"If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul."
~ Rabbi Harold Kushner ~


"He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has."
~ Epictetus ~


"The sun was shining in my eyes, and I could barely see
To do the necessary task that was allotted me.
Resentment of the vivid glow, I started to complain--
When all at once upon the air I heard the blindman's cane."
~ Earl Musselman ~


"There is a calmness to a life lived in Gratitude, a quiet joy."
~ Ralph H. Blum ~ ( American Author )


"You simply will not be the same person two months from now after consciously giving thanks each day for the abundance that exists in your life. And you will have set in motion an ancient spiritual law: the more you have and are grateful for, the more will be given you."
~ Sarah Ban Breathnach ~
Simple Abundance


"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."
~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy ~


"A contented mind is the greatest blessing a man can enjoy in this world."
~ Joseph Addison ~


"To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven."
~ Johannes A. Gaertner ~


"To educate yourself for the feeling of gratitude means to take nothing for granted, but to always seek out and value the kind that will stand behind the action. Nothing that is done for you is a matter of course. Everything originates in a will for the good, which is directed at you. Train yourself never to put off the word or action for the expression of gratitude."
~ Albert Schweitzer ~


"Most of us, swimming against the tides of trouble the world knows nothing about, need only a bit of praise or encouragement - and we will make the goal."
~ Jerome P. Fleishman ~


"Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others."
~ Cicero ~


"Every time we remember to say "thank you", we experience nothing less than heaven on earth."
~ Sarah Ban Breathnach ~


"Gratitude is something of which none of us can give too much. For on the smiles, the thanks we give, our little gestures of appreciation, our neighbors build their philosophy of life."
~ A. J. Cronin ~


"Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart."
~ Seneca ~


"True thanksgiving means that we need to thank God for what He has done for us, and not to tell Him what we have done for Him."
~ George R. Hendrick ~


"Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul."
~ Henry Ward Beecher ~


"Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude.
Gratitude is the completion of thankfulness.
Thankfulness may consist merely of words.
Gratitude is shown in acts."
~ David O. McKay ~


"If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough."
~ Meister Eckhardt ~


Be Thankful

Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire,
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don't know something
For it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations
Because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge
Because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you're tired and weary
Because it means you've made a difference.

It is easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are
also thankful for the setbacks.

GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles
and they can become your blessings.

Bring your own sunshine



It is a rainy and dreary day here today so I needed a little pick me up! I love this quote and I need to remember this one today. :)

The quote says "No matter where you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine." Anthony J. D'Angelo

The cute little sunshine is actually from the David Walker summer font at 2Peas and the other font is David Walker Journal. The papers are from my freebie.

Hope your day is filled with sunshine, no matter what your local weather is like!
