“My father never was and isn’t a mean man.
You know, he never was ruthless.
And he succeeded in life without sticking it to anybody.
And that’s a great example for a man, a strong man,
a man’s man, to give to his children.
You can succeed, you can be successful,
without walking over somebody.”

“I’m a good son, a good father, a good husband –
I’ve been married to the same woman for 30 years.
I’m a good friend.
I finished college, I have my education,
I donate money anonymously.
So, when people criticize the kind of characters
that I play on screen, I go,
‘You know, that’s part of history.'”
~ Samuel Leroy Jackson,
Actor & Film Producer
