Ralph Waite's quotes

  • Just as theater has to be where people live, actors have to go out in the marketplace - not be cut off by a lens. Either an artist grows or he stagnates.
  • You only mature when you face problems you can't deal with.
  • 'The Waltons' was profoundly important after years of wandering around. I was 44 and cut off from family and friends. It nurtured me back to a sense of family and who I am. It was a transforming experience.
  • The beauty of life is in people who feel some obligation to enhance life. Without that, we're only half alive.
  • I have vanity and greed enough for one person. But at the same time, I feel in my bones you lose a lot of life's value if you don't see yourself as a member of the family of man.
  • I was never taken to a play or concert or church. Yet I was a show-off, a dreamer, a storyteller.
  • I'm not any more moral than my neighbors.
