Famous Quotes by Ron Howard

” It was always my dream to be a director. A lot of it had to do with controlling my own destiny, because as a young actor you feel at everyone’s disposal. But I wanted to become a leader in the business.”

“Confidence is preparation in action.

“I think it’s in our nature to try to get beyond that next horizon. That when we as a species are scratching that itch we’re actually following an evolutionary compulsion that is wired into us. I think good things come of it. That’s the philosophical side.

” I think the most important thing really was that you could take very personal ideas and present them to an audience in entertaining ways. “

“Death can be experienced once, winning maybe more, but losing can happen all the time.”
