I'm a laugh tart. I make no secret of that fact.
Love is when the desire to be desired takes you so badly that you feel you could die of it.
The craft Emmys are kind of the kids' table at Thanksgiving. You're not really invited to the big dance. It's still really really exciting and the statue still counts.
Pride slays thanksgiving but a humble mind is the soil out of which thanks naturally grow. A proud man is seldom a grateful man for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves.
Gratitude is the inward feeling of kindness received. Thankfulness is the natural impulse to express that feeling. Thanksgiving is the following of that impulse.
The babe at first feeds upon the mother's bosom but it is always on her heart.
The average American is nothing if not patriotic.
A strangely reflective even melancholy day. Is that because unlike our cousins in the northern hemisphere Easter is not associated with the energy and vitality of spring but with the more subdued spirit...
I've also just finished filming the role of Robert Brown in 'Just William ' which is due to transmit on BBC One at Christmas.
A typical Christmas is me shucking oysters. I love them and I always get them in at Christmas.
I'm a disorganized mess. My purse is gross: I once found a shoulder pad string cheese and a Christmas ornament in it!
There's a little vanity chair that Charlie gave me the first Christmas we knew each other. I'll not be parting with that nor our bed - the four-poster - I'll be needing that to die in.
I once wanted to become an atheist but I gave up - they have no holidays.
Golf is good it means I get some fresh air and exercise take my mind off work and see some of the landscape of the place I'm visiting.
I don't feel right unless I have a sport to play or at least a way to work up a sweat.
I was looking for a husband but meanwhile to survive I had to work.
I never work just to work. It's some combination of laziness and self-respect.
You don't have to twist my arm to work.
I can deal with people who watch me on stage but I am not good in communicating with people any other way than through my work.
The worst sin that can be committed against the artist is to take him at his word to see in his work a fulfillment instead of an horizon.
I take the work seriously just not myself in it.
I just get things done instead of talking about getting them done. I don't go out and party. I don't smoke drink or do drugs and I'm not married that leaves a lot of time for my work.
Instead of asking 'How much damage will the work in question bring about?' why not ask 'How much good? How much joy?'
Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love to work to play and to look up at the stars.
Of all the hard jobs around one of the hardest is being a good teacher.
