Don't be afraid to go after what you want to do, and what you want to be. But don't be afraid to be willing to pay the price.— Lane Frost
Memorable My Cowboy quotations
Cowboys ain't made by boots or hats. They're made by the man inside em that still respects his raising.
No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle.
You can do anything that you wanna do, but uh-uh, don't step on my cowboy boots.
I remember my son wanted to go to bed with his cowboy boots on, and we had this fight for like an hour. Then I realized that the only good reason I had for him not to do it is because I didn't want him to. There was really no other reason. And finally I said, "OK, fine." It was a great victory for me, because I realized it doesn't really matter.
I came in with my idea of what a cowboy would wear, but then I met some real cowboys and they said that I rode the horses well, shoed the horses, but no good cowboy would be wearing a pair of Levi's. I had to get a good old pair of Wranglers.
My experience of life is that it is not divided up into genres;
it’s a horrifying, romantic, tragic, comical, science-fiction cowboy detective novel. You know, with a bit of pornography if you're lucky.
You see, in this world, there's two kinds of people, my friend - those with loaded guns, and those who dig. You dig.
Never ask a barber if you need a haircut.
Where I live in Oklahoma, it's all ranchers.
My friends are all cowboys and pretty rough guys. If I had a hot tub back there, I may as well have Richard Simmons come over and live with me.
I couldn't do country, with all due respect to all country music artists.
My parents dressed me up with a cowboy hat and we'd go to the rodeo when I was younger and it traumatized me for life.
I was feeling real good and real manly.
Until a real cowboy walked by and told me I had my hat on backwards. So much for my career as a cowboy.
When you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging.
I never miss a good chance to shut up
Silence is sometimes the best answer
I'm scared of snakebites - that's the origin of cowboy boots, protection - but my toes need to breathe.
Ever notice how you come across somebody once in a while you shouldn't have messed with? That's me.
Grandpa Patterson used to say: Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear or a fool from any direction.
My dream was to go to Nashville. I had my sights set on my dream. I used to have an '89 Toyota Ford truck. On the front of the truck, I had this license plate with cowboy boots and a guitar that I had airbrushed at Wal-Mart. It said 'Chasin' A Dream.' That was kind of my motto.
I had done my first picture and I didn't have anything to do for awhile.
I was asked to come back to New York and do Bus Stop in the role of the cowboy opposite Kim Stanley.
I didn't always know, but I always wanted to.
I always wanted to be the very best receiver the Cowboys ever had. That was my goal coming in as a rookie and my goal throughout my career: being the best they ever had, going up in the Ring of Honor.
Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a raindance.
It don't take a genius to spot a goat in a flock of sheep.
Never slap a man who is chewing tobacco.
It is easier to get an actor to be a cowboy than to get a cowboy to be an actor.
I was going to move back to Dallas, and my goal was to work at Channel 8 and be a sportscaster and cover my Cowboys and live happily ever after.
If I'm playing country, I gotta have my country hat and my cowboy boots.
I gotta have a voice, and the third thing, I gotta have I guess a little music to keep me in the right mind, a little pre-show something to get ya going. Lots of AC/DC, or I'll sit on youtube and find all kinds of stuff before we take the stage to get pumped up.
I wore a lot of vintage clothing. I dressed like a reporter, with a little card in my hat. I had these fantasies of who I wanted to be, so I'd dress like an explorer, a cowboy. I dressed up like Elton John a lot too. That was another period.
Did I ever tell you my pet peeve?' No,' I said.
People who dress up their pets to look like Little Lord Fauntleroys or cowboys, clowns, ballerinas. As if it's not enough just to be a dog or cat or turtle.
My first cat was named Cowboy, after the Dallas Cowboys.
I spent two months in Fredericksburg, Texas, when I was 8, while my father shot a movie, and I loved it. I just embraced the whole cowboy culture. I got myself a pair of awesome boots and a cowboy hat.
Simple. Pared down. Timeless. The ties were never too thick or too thin; the pants were never too flared or too skinny. In my life with Dad, he wore Western apparel because we went riding - jeans, cowboy boots, the turquoise belt buckle. But it was all very simple, and that classic look is very 'Ralph Lauren.'
I don't think about it, 'Wow! I'm the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys.
' For me, this is my job. This is what I've been preparing to do. And I really want to win badly.
I love black leggings with cowboy (I mean cowgirl!) boots, and other-slightly less trendy-things like my boys' Wrangler jeans and my husband's worn deerskin work gloves. I love most things country, because country, to me, is home.
I get to actually experience what it would be like to be a psycho, which is not a fun one, or to be a cowboy, or to be a weird character of some sort. For me, it suits me. It suits my personality. I'm an emotional kind of person anyway.
That's where I got my start and where I'll continue to work, but I can't tell you the number of films between Drugstore Cowboy and Curly Sue that I auditioned for and wanted that didn't choose me.
