#Quote
1 [about his preference for the theater] The stage is human beings sharing something together -- flesh and blood together -- and the others are mechanical and shadows on the screen.
2 [regarding his acting talent] I never thought I was good. I've touched the hem of the garment a few times but never grabbed it full-hand.
3 I certainly wasn't the idol of millions. I just happened to get good parts. And so I wasn't worried . . . because I could see these character parts stretching on into the, you know, dim days of the future.
4 I have no regrets, real regrets about any darn thing . . . I think second-guessing one's self and your life is the most futile thing in the world.
