Quotes on life:

Courage is being scared to death… and saddling up anyway.
Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It’s perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we’ve learned something from yesterday.

Tomorrow hopes we have learned something from yesterday.
Talk low, talk slow and don’t say too much.
Real art is basic emotion. If a scene is handled with simplicity – and I don’t mean simple – it’ll be good, and the public will know it.

A goal, a love and a dream give you total control over your body and your life.
