George C. Scott Quotes

I think you have to be schizoid three different ways to be an actor ... You have to be a human being. Then you have to be the character youre playing. And on top of that youve got to be the guy sitting out there in Row 10, watching yourself and judging yourself. Thats why most of us are crazy to start with, or go nuts once we get into it.

All this stuff you heard about America not wanting to fight, wanting to stay out of the war, is a lot of horse dung. Americans, traditionally, love to fight. All real Americans love the sting of battle ... Americans play to win all the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed. That's why Americans have never lost - and will never lose - a war, because the very thought of losing is hateful to Americans.

— George C. Scott

I think of myself as a fairly decent human being and it gives me great pain to be considered for all the mean S.O.B.s that come along. I've played bird decapitators, puppy stranglers, woman beaters, wife poisoners, child molesters - every goddamn thing you can think of. It was quite scene there for a while. But I think the image is changing ... I hope to God the old image is fading from people's minds.

— George C. Scott

Truth is not always a pleasant thing.
