Цитаты Чарлтон Хестон

„You could say that the paparazzi and the tabloids are sort of the "assault weapons" of the First Amendment.“

—  Charlton Heston

Interview Fox News Channel (15 September 1997)
Контексте: You could say that the paparazzi and the tabloids are sort of the "assault weapons" of the First Amendment. They're ugly, a lot of people don't like them, but they're protected by the First Amendment — just as "assault weapons" are protected by the Second Amendment.

„As an actor, I'm thankful I have lived not one life, but many.“

—  Charlton Heston

Video farewell (2002)
Контексте: I also want you to know I'm grateful beyond measure. My life has been blessed with good fortune. I'm grateful I was born in America, that cradle of freedom and opportunity where a kid from the Michigan North Woods can work hard and make something of his life. I'm grateful for the greatest words ever written, that let me share with you the infinite scope of the human experience.
As an actor, I'm thankful I have lived not one life, but many.

„Telling us what to think has evolved into telling us what to say, so telling us what to do can't be far behind.“

—  Charlton Heston

Speech at Harvard Law School (16 February 1999) http://www.nra.org/Speech.aspx?id=6029
Контексте: Telling us what to think has evolved into telling us what to say, so telling us what to do can't be far behind.
Before you claim to be a champion of free thought, tell me: Why did political correctness originate on America's campuses? And why do you continue to tolerate it? Why do you, who're supposed to debate ideas, surrender to their suppression?
Let's be honest. Who here thinks your professors can say what they really believe?
It scares me to death and should scare you too, that the superstition of political correctness rules the halls of reason.
You are the best and the brightest. You, here in the fertile cradle of American academia, here in the castle of learning on the Charles River, you are the cream. But I submit that you, and your counterparts across the land, are the most socially conformed and politically silenced generation since Concord Bridge. And as long as you validate that... and abide it... you are — by your grandfathers' standards — cowards.

„Let me make a short, opening, blanket comment. There are no "good guns."“

—  Charlton Heston

There are no "bad guns". Any gun in the hands of a bad man is a bad thing. Any gun in the hands of a decent person is no threat to anybody — except bad people.
Interview on Meet the Press (18 May 1997)

„I always work on the theory that the audience will believe you best if you believe yourself.“

—  Charlton Heston

Los Angeles Times interview (1956)
Контексте: I always work on the theory that the audience will believe you best if you believe yourself. This meant that I had to come to understand Moses well enough to believe in my portrayal of him.

„If you see a little less spring in my step, if your name fails to leap to my lips, you will know why. And if I tell you a funny story for the second time, please laugh anyway.“

—  Charlton Heston

Video farewell (2002)
Контексте: I have lived my whole life on the stage and screen before you. I found purpose and meaning in your response. For an actor that is no greater loss than the loss of his audience. I can part the Red Sea, but I can't part with you, which is why I won't exclude you from this stage in my life.
For now, I'm not changing anything. I will insist on work when I can; the doctors will insist on rest when I must. If you see a little less spring in my step, if your name fails to leap to my lips, you will know why. And if I tell you a funny story for the second time, please laugh anyway.

„I used to think if it wasn't possible to be a family man and a totally dedicated artist“

—  Charlton Heston

Sunday Times interview (1990)
Контексте: I used to think if it wasn't possible to be a family man and a totally dedicated artist, I'd rather be the former. I'm an idealist and a romantic.

„Celebrity is a corrosive condition for the soul.“

—  Charlton Heston

I have tried to restrain its inroads on me, but there are odd corners of my character that have been harmed.
Sunday Times interview (1990)

„To me Moses is all men grown to gigantic proportions.“

—  Charlton Heston

Los Angeles Times interview (1956)
Контексте: To me Moses is all men grown to gigantic proportions.
He was a man of immense ability, immense emotions, immense humanness and immense dedication. There is something of Moses in each of us — the more there is, the better we are.
It is interesting to note that once Moses climbs Mt. Sinai and talks to God there is never contentment for him again. That is the way it is with us. Once we talk to God, once we get his commission to us for our lives we cannot be again content. We are happier. We are busier. But we are not content because then we have a mission — a commission, rather.

„Political correctness is tyranny with manners.“

—  Charlton Heston

Speech at the Harvard Law School (1999), as quoted in "Appreciation : Charlton Heston" in TIME magazine (6 April 2008) http://www.time.com/time/arts/article/0,8599,1728272,00.html

„Sam is the only person I've ever physically threatened on a set.“

—  Charlton Heston

On working with director Sam Peckinpah, as quoted in "(Westerns Channel Begins Production on Original Documentary Focusing on Western Films of Legendary Director Sam Peckinpah" (29 August 2003) https://archive.is/20130628092918/www.accessmylibrary.com/coms2/summary_0286-24232345_ITM

„Tragedy has been and will always be with us. Somewhere right now, evil people are planning evil things. All of us will do everything meaningful, everything we can do to prevent it, but each horrible act can’t become an axe for opportunists to cleave the very Bill of Rights that binds us. America must stop this predictable pattern of reaction. When an isolated terrible event occurs, our phones ring demanding that the NRA explain the inexplicable. Why us? Because their story needs a villain. … That is not our role in American society and we will not be forced to play it. … Now, if you disagree that’s your right, I respect that, but we will not relinquish it, or be silenced about it, or be told ‘do not come here, you are unwelcome in your own land.“

—  Charlton Heston

NRA annual meeting closing remarks http://www.nrawinningteam.com/meeting99/hestsp2.html, Denver, Colorado, 1999-05-01; referring to the complaints that some had that the NRA should not proceed to have its scheduled convention in Denver out of sensitivity to the fact that the Columbine shootings had occurred near the convention site; used on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart (Aug. 19, 2010) http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/thu-august-19-2010/extremist-makeover---homeland-edition as reasoning why a proposed mosque near the site of the September 11th terrorist attacks must be allowed to be built.
