“The thing with kids is that you only get one chance to do it right. It's really important to share their gifts while they're discovering them. That's why spelling bees are such a compelling story. They stimulate them intellectually, they awaken their competitive spirit, but it's fun. There's something fun about words.”More Laurence Fishburne [12/22/2006 12:12:00]
“It's inaccurate to talk about J.J. being a first-time anything. Just because he's telling stories on the little screen doesn't mean he shouldn't be telling stories on the big screen.”More Laurence Fishburne [12/22/2006 12:12:00]

“Mine were informal mentors. They were all in my working life.”More Laurence Fishburne [12/22/2006 12:12:00]
“Hiding a talent is not exclusive to any one particular group of people, young, old, black, white, Latin. It doesn't matter. It's universal. The idea that you have a gift or talent is always kind of threatening. Most of us are afraid of our success, that we will actually be great.”More Laurence Fishburne [12/22/2006 12:12:00]
I certainly believe that being in contact with one's spirit and nurturing one's spirit is as important as nurturing one's body and mind. We are three dimensional beings: body, mind, spirit.More Laurence Fishburne [09/02/2011 02:09:41]

I've been a fan of Mads since the “Casino Royale” movie. I really sat up and paid attention to him. I was like, “Who is this motherf**ker?” Even his work in something as sort of popcorn as “Clash of the Titans,” he brings a kind of danger and reality and he grounds it in such a way that you think, yes, I'm good to work with this guy. I should come back, just stay behind him. (Laughs) Our working relationship has been fantastic.More Laurence Fishburne [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
