Brian Aherne's quotes

  • One just does not behave in England quite the same as one does in America and Australia, and the Australian girl on the sheep station who thought I was a stuffed shirt has had her counterpart, I fear, only too often in America.
  • Most men who become actors do so either because, like myself, they couldn't get a job at anything else or because, as I firmly believe, they are attracted by the prospect of long mornings in bed.
  • I was no athlete. I could not jump over haystacks or fight ten men at once, nor could I ever hope to follow Douglas Fairbanks in those glorious parts which he had made his own.
  • In the main the classes respect each other but do not mingle in England. We are not democratic, in the American sense of the word, but our much-maligned class system has endured for centuries, and we understand it.
