Tim Robbins Quotes
- I ran spotlight. Swept up. Did box office. Ran the lighting board. But acting was the most fun.
- When you make the judgement as a network that there are only three candidates, you are censoring points of view.
- Just because someone gets arrested doesn’t mean what they are doing is wrong. Some laws are unfair and unjust.
- Most good actors have a huge intelligence about the human condition and a real open heart to different kinds of people and behavior.
- I think the enemy is self-censorship. In a free society the biggest danger is that you’re afraid to the point where you censor yourself.
- Toy Soldiers was my introduction to film. I certainly didn’t think I was doing art by any stretch of the imagination.
- My philosophy is, don’t take no for an answer and be willing to sacrifice your entire project for freedom.
