Everybody knows my life – it’s an open book.
– Michael Moriarty
As long as I’m an hour away from a major airport, I can get to that job.
I’m very privileged to be the celebrity I am.
I hate going to L.A. and dealing with the contempt people have for television and television actors. It’s unbelievable the kind of attitude people take toward what is the most exciting medium we’ve got right now.
Life is best when you are in love.
Anything well written with good language and clarity and honesty is worth doing. It comes out of the same tradition as Shakespeare.
Violent drama has been a hallmark of every great civilization. It is not the cause of the disease – it is an immunizing factor. People go to the theater to experience emotions like fear and loathing. Violent drama shows us where we come from. It makes us face our hypocrisy.
If they want to talk about aliens and anything like that… that’s part of the gift God gave us. That’s what makes life exciting. We’re pretty stuck, you know. What gives flight to our life is our imagination.
Never lose your faith in the American Dream. She’s a nation under God, and God has never let a good American down.
When I saw Paul Scofield do ‘Love’s Labor’s Lost at Stratford,’ that’s when I saw the potential of the level of truth that could go on up there on a stage. I said, ‘This is what I want to do.’
Obama’s IRS is not the IRS I’ve ever known for over seventy years as an American citizen.
I’ve had the most wonderful life.
I’m the American Winston Churchill.
The New World Order run by the United Nations ain’t gonna happen. Because they’ve shown their hand, and at least some corner of Congress and the American people are awake to it: they’ve blown it all.
Film is something that came later into my life. I had a Jesuit education, and I consider acting and the theater as kind of a calling – a vocation.

I know a lot about Canadian politics. I lived in Canadian bars for six years.
I consider myself a kind of a one-man government-in-exile. I don’t want to call it a government – let’s call it one man’s idea of American freedom in exile.
Once the Supreme Court in 1973 decided that infanticide could be legal, it not only ended America’s ‘inalienable right to life,’ it threw the Golden Rule right off the shores of this continent.
Interviews don’t go to the core of my life. Everybody knows my life – it’s an open book.
I think if you open the door to government control of television, then you let in a host of questions about rights.
I’ve become so earthy. And I never was earthy. I’m doing all kinds of different roles which are not at all like the intellectual and the legal mind of Ben Stone.
Laws against things like drugs are inhumane, and create an inhumane society and inhumane law enforcement. I know what’s causing violence in America – the damn drug laws.
When I got political that blew our marriage out of the water. I was not the same person and I admit that.
I was born first to music. But I went into acting because my father knew so much about music he intimidated me. So, I picked an art form, he knew nothing about. So I could be my own man.
The attorney general should be enforcing the law, not policy.
