Quote Of The Day

“Once again, these tests show the importance of side-impact bags. In a head-on crash you have the entire front end of the vehicle to crush and help protect you. In a side crash, there's very little there to absorb the impact, so you are much better protected with side air bags.”

Growing up in the fifties, having to wear a dog tag, having to take shelter in a bomb shelter. That turned me toward the road, I did not want to live in fear of that, I was gong to work somehow against what that vision was, and what that horror was. It was poetry, art, music.

I think there's a quality of passion to the American actor. I'm certainly attracted to it, and I like to hope that underscoring it is a characteristic of my work.

“You have to present learning in a different way at times, but do it in a challenging way to not distract the intense readers.
