Favorite Quotes from Peter Dinklage
“I love animals. All animals. I wouldn’t hurt a cat or a dog — or a chicken, or a cow. And I wouldn’t ask someone else to hurt them for me. That’s why I’m a vegetarian.” – Peter Dinklage
“Any swagger is just defense. When you’re reminded so much of who you are by people – not a fame thing, but with my size, constantly, growing up – you just either curl up in a corner in the dark or you wear it proudly, like armor or something. You can turn it on its head and use it yourself before anybody else gets a chance.” – Peter Dinklage
“I was fortunate enough to have an upbringing that made me more accepting of who I am.” – Peter Dinklage
“So I won’t say I’m lucky. I’m fortunate enough to find or attract very talented people. For some reason I found them, and they found me.” – Peter Dinklage
3 Great Lessons from Peter Dinklage
Now that you know all about Peter Dinklage’s net worth, and how he achieved success; let’s take a look at some of the best lessons we can learn from him:
1. Let Them See that Their Words Can Cut You and You’ll Never Be Free of the Mockery
Being a dwarf and a reason for his mother’s death (during delivery) he is often mocked by the names ‘Imp’ and the ‘monster’. Over time he started accepting those names and even starting making fun of the same and that certainly is not the reaction that the other person might be expecting.
When they don’t get what they wanted/expected, then ‘you’ start to play with ‘their’ head.
2. Never Forget What You Are
The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor, and it can never be used to hurt you. YES! Once you unveil your true self to your conscious mind and accept yourself as you are, nothing can stop you from excelling.
Even if you hide it from yourself, the people around you know your limitations and they will use them against you. ACCEPT YOUR INSECURITIES and ‘wear it like armor’ when you don’t have anything to hide, you can be yourself and do things your way.
3. It’s Hard to Put a Leash On a Dog Once You’ve Put a Crown on Its Head
There are times when you have to pamper certain people to get your work done. You don’t really want them to throw tantrums at you, I mean, Come on! they did a favor for which you are thankful and would return it as and when needed. That is an egalitarian picture that I am painting.
Many times they start dancing on your head and there is nothing that you can do about it. So, it is better than you choose the dog wisely before putting a crown on its head.
