I don't like scary films. I watched Psycho (1960) for the first time recently, alone in the house at night. That was a mistake. I had to call my friend to come over.

James Dean had such a powerful effect on my generation. I'd love to have worked with him.

If all of the issues that I have worked on were depending on some measure of success, it would be a total failure. I don't anticipate success. We're not asked to be successful, we are only asked to be faithful. I couldn't even tell you what success is.

While acting is what I do for a living, activism is what I do to stay alive.

Anybody who plays golf will tell you that you play against yourself.

I am still a journeyman actor and a peace and justice activist. I'm a pilgrim trying to win my freedom and serve as best I can in the time I have, with this gift I've been given.

I act because I can't seem to live with myself if I do not. I don't know any other way to be. It isn't something you can explain; it is just something that you do; it is something that you are.
