Favorite Quotes from Al Pacino
“There is only one way of surviving all the early heartbreaks in this business. You must have a sense of humor. And I think it also helps if you are a dreamer. I had my dreams all right. And that is something no one can ever take away. They cost nothing, and they can be as real as you like to make them. You own your dreams and they are priceless. I’ve been a lavatory attendant, a theatre usher, a panhandler, all for real. Now, as an actor, I can be a journalist today and a brain surgeon tomorrow. – Al Pacino
“Forget the career, do the work. If you feel what you are doing is online and you’re going someplace and you have a vision and you stay with it, eventually things will happen.” – Al Pacino
“You sharpen the human appetite to the point where it can split atoms with its desire; you build egos the size of cathedrals; fiber-optically connect the world to every eager impulse; grease even the dullest dreams with this dollar-green, gold-plated fantasies, until every human becomes an aspiring emperor, becomes his own God… and where can you go from there?” – Al Pacino
“We start to realize that there are anodynes in life that help us through the day. I don’t care if it’s a walk in the park, a look out the window, a good bubble bath – whatever. Even a meal you like, or a friend you want to call. That helps us solve all this stuff in our head.” – Al Pacino
“A lot of actors choose parts by the scripts, but I don’t trust reading the scripts that much. I try to get some friends together and read a script aloud. Sometimes I read scripts and record them and play them back to see if there’s a movie. It’s very evocative; it’s like a first cut because you hear ‘She walked to the door,’ and you visualize all these things. ‘She opens the door’ . . . because you read the stage directions, too.” – Al Pacino
3 Success Lessons from Al Pacino
Now that you know all about Al Pacino’s net worth, and how he achieved success; let’s take a look at some of the lessons we can learn from him:
1. If you get all tangled up, just tango on
When you’re stuck, surrender to being stuck and start enjoying. That will give you a mental stability to overcome your troubles in life.
2. Always tell the truth. Even when you lie
The truth always comes forward. It takes a lot of hard work to be something you aren’t. To act like something you don’t believe in or is not, at your core, who you truly are, is dishonest. That is the same thing as saying someone things that are not true.
3. Never hate your enemies
Keep your enemies closer than your real friends. We can surely choose how to deal with them. We need to have a strategy in place to win the game with the competitor. But never hate them.
