QUOTES

My Life. My Love. My Passion.
"You're only given one spark of madness. You mustn't lose it!"
"Mickey Mouse to a three-year-old is a six-foot-tall rat."
"I always go back to how people behave. If you watch how people actually behave in a situation, it's very simple and honest and contained. You don't need to use as much expression, as much feeling. Some characters will boil over, and that's another thing, but a lot of times I think you can just do very, very little."
"A day without laughter is a day wasted"
"In the process of looking for comedy, you have to be deeply honest. And in doing that, you'll find out here's the other side. You'll be looking under the rock occasionally for the laughter."
"If we cannot see the possibility of greatness, how can we dream of it?"
