Wisdom and goodness to the vile seem vile; Filths savour but themselves.

Directing Skyfall was one of the best experiences of my professional life, but I have theatre and other commitments, including productions of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory and King Lear, that need my complete focus over the next year and beyond.

A lively and lasting sense of filial duty is more effectually impressed on the mind of a son or daughter by reading King Lear, than by all the dry volumes of ethics, and divinity that ever were written.

Come not between the dragon and his wrath.


I would love to be remembered as one of the greatest Lears or Hamlets.

Love's not love When it is mingled with regards that stand Aloof from th' entire point.

Pray you now, forget and forgive.

The truly tragic kind of suffering is the kind produced and defiantly insisted upon by the hero himself so that, instead of making him better, it makes him worse and when he dies he is not reconciled to the law but defiant, that is, damned. Lear is not a tragic hero, Othello is.

To paraphrase Oedipus, Hamlet, Lear, and all those guys, "I wish I had known this some time ago.


The gods are just, and of our pleasant vices Make instruments to plague us.

It's difficult for most people to imagine the creative process in tennis.

Seemingly it's just an athletic matter of hitting the ball consistently well within the boundaries of the court. That analysis is just as specious as thinking that the difficulty in portraying King Lear on stage is learning all the lines.

The rain, it raineth every day.

The owl and the pussycat went to sea, / In a beautiful pea green boat.

/ They took some honey, and plenty of money, / Wrapped up in a five pound note.

Allow not nature more than nature needs.


I have three daughters and I find as a result I played King Lear almost without rehearsal.

The actor is too prone to exaggerate his powers;

he wants to play Hamlet when his appearance is more suitable to King Lear.

Have more than thou showest, Speak less than thou knowest, Lend less than thou owest.

And my poor fool is hanged! No, no, no life! Why should a dog, a horse, a rat, have life, And thou no breath at all? Thou'lt come no more, Never, Never, Never, Never, Never! Pray you, undo this button.

I do not see how it is possible for an intelligent human being to conclude that the Song of Solomon is the work of God, and that the tragedy of Lear was the work of an uninspired man.


This cold night will turn us all to fools and madmen.

I think you have to find the humanity in the character and then the deterioration is a part of the process - the journey of the character. It's like playing King Lear. You can start off as a nice old man who finishes up crazy.

You have to get through the Hamlet hoop as a young actor.

Your classical qualifications are based on the quality of your Hamlet. And then, as an older actor, you have to get through the Lear hoop. And I'm approaching the Lear hoop.

We might not object to the statement that Lear deserved to suffer for his folly, selfishness and tyranny; but to assert that he deserved to suffer what he did suffer is to do violence not merely to language but to any healthy moral sense.

And thou, all-shaking thunder, Strike flat the thick rotundity o' the world! Crack nature's moulds, all germens spill at once That makes ingrateful man!


Whenever I say I made a record in the garage, people just assume that I have, like, a Lear jet parked in there or something. But really there's old luggage, a couple of bikes. It's big enough to put one minivan in. That's it. No dartboard. I'm so not macho.
