Paul Winfield's quotes

  • I was given a lot of prestige as a distinguished black actor but very little power. They give prestige out by the buckets, but they give power by the teaspoon, just enough to stroke your ego.
  • Since I am not particularly pretty and I can't sing or dance, I started off in television with a lot of bit parts either as a black activist or some type of psychopathic heavy.
  • [on Sounder (1972)] The love and devotion the Lee family expresses is what it is all about. This is the real black experience. In most black films, those cats don't show any humor or emotions. They just get in and out of bed.
