Famous Quotes by Jim Parsons

I think intelligence is usually sexy until it becomes irritating. After that, you’re stuck.

Someone else’s success is not your failure.

Home is where you feel unjudged, and where what I do isn’t necessarily stupid or wrong.

In voicing so much is left to your imagination to create the world around you like that. It’s really the essence of what’s so fun for, I think, many people when they first start to want to be an actor, is that they realize they enjoy making up a world around them to exist in, a whole situation and a whole way of being. And even more so than theatre, animation requires that because there’s just nothing to go on. It’s in your head and your heart or it’s not there at all.

As a human being, you know that there are some days when you’d rather not talk to anybody – but I can’t really do that anymore without appearing rude.

As of 2020, Jim Parsons is estimated to be worth around $150 Million
