Hal Holbrook

American actor
[Mark] Twain is pointing at you. You, the reader of the book one hundred and thirty years ago and today. That is what has made it a great American novel and the most widely read book in American Literature around the world today.More Hal Holbrook quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I got a feeling about political correctness. I hate it. It causes us to lie silently instead of saying what we think.More Hal Holbrook quotes [08/29/2011 03:08:34]
I never, ever update Mark Twain. I don't modernize it. I let the audience update the material. When I go out on stage, I'm trying to make the audience believe they're looking at this guy who died 104 years ago and listening to him and saying to themselves, "Jesus, he could be talking about today." And that's the point.More Hal Holbrook quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
[Mark] Twain was a publisher. He published General Grant's Memoirs (a big success) and had a hand in the publishing of many of his own books. He would, I think, be very keen about the question of how a book would sell.More Hal Holbrook quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What are we going to do about the injuries to our country still going on right in front of our eyes? It gets me out of bed in the morning. It makes me mad enough to get my blood up and want to get out there with [Mark] Twain and get it said and that is why I still hit the road and go out on the stage and keep working at staying alive.More Hal Holbrook quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
