Cary Grant
I really am a happy, amusing fellow at heart. Trouble is I seem the only one left.
Grant quotes
It is the law of life that if you are kind to someone you feel happy.  If you are cruel you are unhappy.  And if you hurt someone, you will be hurt back.
Grant
It always amazes me that those who fight for the luxuries of life, are the first to resent those who have them.  Also, people seek targets for whatever hurts them, especially their own lack of success.  Personally, I regard every knock as a boost.




Grant Cary quotes
God for all anyone knows could be Cary Grant.
Grant Cary
Anyone can do well Ö Itís all out there waiting for you to take.  But first you must reach out and get it.  You must work for your riches.  You cannot expect it to fall into your lap.
Cary Grant quotes
Iím prepared.  I have a gun and I know how to shoot, and whoever comes calling without an invitation will get it in the rear end.
Cary Grant
I pretended to be somebody I wanted to be until finally I became that person. Or he became me.
Grant Cary quotes
You must learn to live within yourself Ö You must establish the values by which you live.  You must first recognize the need, and if it is right you will be amazed at how things will open up.
Grant
My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.
Grant Cary
When Iím married I want to be single, and when Iím single I want to be married.
Cary Grant
I used to hide behind the faÁade that was Cary Grant Ö I didnít know if I were Archie Leach, or Cary Grant, and I wasnít taking any chances. Ö Another thing I had to cure myself of was the desire for adulation, and the approbation of my fellow man.  It started when I was a small boy and played football at school.  If I did well they cheered me.  If I fumbled I was booed.  It became very important to me to be liked.  Itís the same in the theater, the applause and the laughter give you courage and the excitement to go on.  I thought it was absolutely necessary in order to be happy.  Now I know how it can change, just like that.  They can be applauding you one moment, and booing you the next.  The thing to know is that you have done a good job, then it doesnít hurt to be criticized.  My press agent was very indignant over something written about me not too long ago.  ďLook,Ē I told him.  ďIíve known this character for many years, and the faults he sees in me are really the faults in himself that he hates.Ē 




Cary Grant quotes
I suppose you might call me the sophisticated type. I like to act with dialogue. Not with grunts.
Cary Grant
Donít go to extremes.  Donít hate too much and donít love too much.  Try to live somewhere in the middle.  Hate destroys the hater.  And if you love too much you get too involved and you cannot see too clearly.  Love and hate are like night and day.  They do exist together and you must accept them both, but you must also understand them and be in control of both emotions.  It is peaceful in the middle.  You wonít be hurt in the middle.
Grant quotes
I never dwell on past mistakesÖ There is too much to plan for the future to waste time complaining.  Elsie Mendl was a great friend of mine for many, many years.  And I remember the creed by which she lived: Never complain, never explain.  Just think of the people you know who are always explaining their mistakes.  It merely rubs the whole thing in.  Youíre reminded again of the mistake. And no one believes the explanation anyway.
Grant Cary
Everyone wants to be Cary Grant. Even I want to be Cary Grant.
