Hal Holbrook

American actor
We live in a democracy. We have this extraordinary opportunity to use our mind and say what we think, speak as we think. Sometimes what we say is objectionable to other people. But that is part of a free society.More Hal Holbrook quotes [08/29/2011 03:08:44]
When the audience begins to see the sunrise on that it's hard for them to turn away from it because they're listening to a man talking to them from over a century ago. And nothing has changed. So what are you going to do about that?More Hal Holbrook quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To communicate with each other, we got to get mad at each other sometimes.More Hal Holbrook quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If we want to understand the actions of a man in the early 1860's, put yourself back there in his shoes. As a young man he began piloting steamboats on the Mississippi, a job he loved and wanted to do the rest of his life, he said. The Civil War ended traffic on the River and his job. He wrote about it in A History of A Campaign That Failed. He said: "I joined the Confederacy, served for two weeks, deserted, and the Confederacy fell." His attachment to the Southern ideal of slavery does not appear very sturdy.More Hal Holbrook quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Look, see, learn, become a citizen of Mankind, not just Hannibal, Missouri. That is the message of [Mark] Twain.More Hal Holbrook quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
