Brian Keith's quotes

  • In other words...you can't be a misogynist and expect women to appreciate you.
  • New Year's Eve though it's a custom. We invite over friends who, like ourselves don't drink at all, or else very lightly.
  • [on trying to live a long life]: If I live to be a hundred -- and I hope I do -- I won't have time to read all the books I want to read, or talk to the people I want to know. Not party talk. That's a waste of time. Real talk.
  • [on his handsomeness]: What for? I don't go to the Daisy or any of that. We don't give parties under a striped awning out over the lawn for two hundred people, four of whom we like.
  • [on his popularity, while playing the forty-five something "Uncle Bill Davis" on Family Affair (1966)]: This is the type of show I love, because it reminds me of what happiness I have with my wife and our children.
  • I never gave a hoot, I just took what came along.
  • [In 1991]: A car is a car, it won't make you handsome or prettier or younger. And if it improves your standing with the neighbors, then you live among snobs.
  • [As he was describing what Family Affair (1966) was about]: It's the same setup as The Parent Trap (1961), that I did for Disney. The clothes, the apartment, servants, all that jazz.
  • I played a real nothing named Wally.
  • [In 1966]: I like the kids. Aren't you going to ask about them? Yours or the ones in the show?
  • [In 1969]: I hope to get some time off this spring for a vacation.
  • [In 1968]: You have the responsibility to conduct yourself in the best way you know how to do.
  • [In 1972]: I have to admit that I didn't mind it. We all got along well, and the kids were unspoiled. But towards the end, I was getting tired of it.
  • The main thing is to live, if possible, where you feel comfortable.
  • [When he used to work in carnivals]: Gypsies believe you have to go out and meet life; take what comes. You aren't supposed to know what lies ahead, and those who want to know are cheating. They're called marks, the suckers, and you tell them anything.
  • [While starring in the movie Reflections in a Golden Eye (1967)]: I don't want to play the same guy all the time. I've got three or four scripts at home in which I play somebody's father or uncle, but it's the same old junk. I like to play characters.
  • [In 1997]: I was willing to deal with the emphysema, but now I don't think there's much point trying to live on.
  • [Of his last days]: Forgive me, but I don't want to live anymore. The pain is too bad. There's no point in trying to prolong this agony.
  • She told me: 'How can you love me looking like this? It would be better if I were gone. No matter what I do I'm going to die, and the sooner the better as far as I'm concerned.'
  • [When told he was to speak only Russian during filming]: Terrific, they gave me six whole days to learn the Russian language.
  • [In 1977]: Russians put different emphasis in their sentences. When we may stress the last word in a sentence, they may emphasize a word in the middle of it.
