Neil Patrick Harris's quotes

  • [on the Tony Awards] We like to call it 50 Shades of Gay.
  • I have always been a fan of that immersive theatre idea that there is some kind of puzzle unfolding, and that things are happening around you without you knowing it.
  • But magic is like pizza: even when it's bad, it's pretty good.
  • Sometimes you can have the smallest role in the smallest production and still make a big impact.
  • For me, magic can be a story, a game, a puzzle, or a surprise that takes my breath away in a single, furious gulp.
  • It was so shiny
  • Think of me like Yoda, but instead of being little and green I wear suits.
  • For others, magic is a crisp autumn's day or a tender hug from a loved one.
  • When she is three, you catch her singing Miley Cyrus's "Wrecking Ball," a song nobody should sing until they're at least dead. [from his book - Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography]
  • The tots both started laughing. On the same day. I'm now obsessed with getting them to do it. Babies laughing is like opium.
  • I enjoy being a hyphenate. I've always thought of my career as a plate spinner in the circus.
  • So pluck up your courage and take that risk! Add another story to the book of your life. Even if it doesn't go the way you planned or wanted, you'll still learn from it. Adventure
  • Not really. You're prepubescent, so no bush.
  • You come in weighing a very average, very sexy seven pounds, seven ounces. As it happens, that is also the exact weight of an Emmy Award. Coincidence? Yes ... but true fact? No.
