Text Quotes
I thought ‘The King’s Speech’ was great  (Paul Haggis Quotes) It turns out that good actors can make anything believable  (Paul Haggis Quotes) We think we know what’s right. With excessive pride comes blindness.  (Paul Haggis Quotes) In ‘The Next Three Days,’ even though it was a prison breakout movie, I was asking myself, ‘What would I do? How far would I go for the woman I loved? How far would I go, and what would I do when the person then told me that they were guilty? Could I still believe in them?’ So it was very personal.  (Paul Haggis Quotes) You have to have empathy, knowledge and compassion for your characters if you’re a writer  (Paul Haggis Quotes) I’m such an antsy type of person. I can’t write in a room without other people around. I write in coffee shops.  (Paul Haggis Quotes) As soon as you think you know Clint Eastwood, you don’t know Clint Eastwood  (Paul Haggis Quotes) United States could be a great country. It needs to be a great country. It’s our responsibility as citizens to make that happen, every single one of us.  (Paul Haggis Quotes) If you change the right mind, then that person can perhaps change the world  (Paul Haggis Quotes) I just figure if you have a modicum of celebrity, you need to use it, and you need to use it for more things than just promoting yourself or your film or your image or your product.  (Paul Haggis Quotes) I just want to thank people who take big risks in their daily lives when there aren’t cameras rolling. I want to dedicate this award to people who stand up for peace and against injustice and intolerance.  (Paul Haggis Quotes) I loved American filmmakers when I was growing up. I didn’t get to film school or anything. I was a very bad student. I just devoured film, but there was a point in my teens when I started to run a little film society.  (Paul Haggis Quotes) I am really drawn to damaged characters, and I have a lot of sympathy for them. Making those complicated characters empathetic is something to strive for. It’s too easy to create a good guy or a good girl.  (Paul Haggis Quotes) I don’t think I’m against all wars, but you’d have to have a damn good reason to send your son or daughter to fight, or to go yourself. So often, we are lied to and manipulated by our governments for their own very cynical reasons.  (Paul Haggis Quotes) I wrote an episode for ‘thirtysomething,’ and a producer said, ‘That’s really good, but what is it about? What does it say about you? What questions are you asking yourself?’ I had never thought about that. This comment changed who I was, because it made me look at my own soul, the dark corners in my soul, and accept that dark side.  (Paul Haggis Quotes) I made a very good living as a bad writer. I wrote a lot of comedies, ‘Diff’rent Strokes,’ ‘Facts of Life,’ while all my friends were doing the good shows, like ‘Cheers,’ but I loved it because I got to be a working writer in Hollywood.  (Paul Haggis Quotes) The great majority of Scientologists I know are good people who are genuinely interested in improving conditions on this planet and helping others.  (Paul Haggis Quotes) A lot of films made me love the movies, everything from Hitchcock to Godard. But the ones that really grabbed me were Costa-Gavras’s films like ‘Z’ and ‘State of Siege.’  (Paul Haggis Quotes) If there’s magic in boxing, it’s the magic of fighting battles beyond endurance, beyond cracked ribs, ruptured kidneys and detached retinas. It’s the magic of risking everything for a dream that nobody sees but you.  (Paul Haggis Quotes) Film is an emotional medium; it’s not a logical medium. It’s not an intellectual medium, so every decision you make as a filmmaker and an actor has to be emotional in some way, even in the rejection of logic.  (Paul Haggis Quotes) If you believe in someone enough, and you just don’t stop believing in them, mo matter what, no matter how much they push you away, and no matter how often they prove they’re only there to use you.  (Paul Haggis Quotes) All my work is partly biographical. I mean, ‘Crash’ was absolutely that, absolutely. But you just wouldn’t recognize me in most of those characters. But I was in every single one of those characters in ‘Crash,’ because those were all fears that I had felt. Things that I had thought in my deepest, darkest heart.  (Paul Haggis Quotes) I moved to Hollywood when I was 22. I was married. I had a kid right away. And I had worked as a furniture mover amongst various other jobs, and I’d work eight, ten hours a day to support my family - and I’d come home and write for two hours a night or two and a half, or three hours a night.  (Paul Haggis Quotes) For me, the most interesting people are ones who often work against their best interests. Bad choices. They go in directions where you go, ‘No no no nooo!’ You push away someone who is trying to love you, you hurt someone who’s trying to get your trust, or you love someone you shouldn’t.  (Paul Haggis Quotes) I don’t pay much attention to the press. My films always get good reviews and bad reviews. I just try to make the best film I can.  (Paul Haggis Quotes) I don’t think it’s the job of filmmakers to give anybody answers. I do think, though, that a good film makes you ask questions of yourself as you leave the theatre.  (Paul Haggis Quotes) My one guiding rule for success in the film world would be, be careful of your friends  (Paul Haggis Quotes) What happens when these young men and women come home so scarred and so wounded? We are ignoring that fact. We’re just shoving them under the carpet  (Paul Haggis Quotes) As soon as you think you know Clint Eastwood, you don’t know Clint Eastwood  (Paul Haggis Quotes) We never did just one take. Multiple takes. Many. I did a bunch. Sometimes I do one take. Sometimes I did 20  (Paul Haggis Quotes)
