Favorite Quotes from Tobey Maguire
“There are so many things I want to do. I want to work with great filmmakers, great actors, great scripts. And there’s no reason for me to do anything short of that because I’m 24, I don’t have a family, I don’t need to make tons of money, and I’m not dying to get famous.” – Tobey Maguire
“I just try to try to keep an attitude that I don’t know what I’m doing. Not to the point where I’m beating myself up, but I just go in thinking that I have a lot to learn. And I hope I still have that attitude 30 years from now.” – Tobey Maguire
“If you’re sitting in the audience, you probably can’t see the preparation and work that goes into creating a great scene or a great part, but I can assure you that a good film depends on a lot of different things falling perfectly into place.” – Tobey Maguire
“The most attention I get is in a book store or video shop when I go to the foreign film section. Sometimes that can be fun, but usually, those women want to talk about philosophy or something very dense. It’s not like they’re tearing off my shirt, you know.” – Tobey Maguire
“To me, the whole idea of fame and I think it can be a real test of somebody, of who they are. You know, ’cause some strange things happen. I’ve seen some peculiar things as far as a person just living their life.” – Tobey Maguire

2. With Great Powers Comes Great Responsibility
Just because we are powerful compared to someone, this does not mean that we get the right to harass or exploit them. Instead, we should use our physical, mental, or financial powers to help the weak, the exploited and the destitute.
3. Don’t Chase Your Love, Instead Chase Your Ambitions
Peter loves MJ more than anything else still he can’t have her in his life because of his commitment to his crusade against criminals.
If Peter would have sacrificed his ambition for her then surely he would have regretted since the future with MJ will always be uncertain because of her insecurity.
You may get love by choosing her over your dreams, but you will never be happy. Chase your ambition.
