I was going to movies and watching TV, going to the theater a little bit. It was like 'Wow, you could make a living doing this? Great! What could be better?' There isn't anything I could choose better.

Partly because the town is just finicky, there are strange Catch 22 clauses in the consciousness of this community and one of them was that you, I found out, you can't do a comedy unless you've just done a comedy.

A lot of old guys in movies are like cowboys - they talk like cowboys and they dress like cowboys.

I don't believe in death. I think it's just a state of mind.

I saw the horizon. It's out there. And though I may not ever be able to touch it, it's worth reaching for.

I don't make any pretense about being normal. I'm not.

New Mexico is my home. It has never been anything but home. The ranch has rivers and canyon, everything imaginable. I can ride, hunt and fish. At the same time, ranching is grueling, difficult work. It`s like acting, to be successful at it, you have to work hard. I take it very seriously.
