FAMOUS QUOTES BY BRENDAN JAMES FRASER

“Most people go, I wish for world peace. But chaos has a place in balancing out the light and the dark in the world. I don’t know if I would wish for world peace.”

“I’m starting to judge success by the time I have for myself, the time I spend with family and friends. My priorities aren’t amending; they’re shifting.”

“I guess darkness serves a purpose: to show us that there is redemption through chaos. I believe in that. I think that’s the basis of Greek mythology.”
“I mean, it was a mummy movie. It was a good film independent of its source. It that looks like Lawrence of Arabia on steroids in a lot of ways.”
“Why would you not eat cake?! Come on. It’s a harmless little piece of cake, an easily digested, mass consumable tasty thing, much like “Escape From Planet Earth.” Something everyone wants to see! You’ve gotta take the kids to see something! Perfect! I’ve got kids, they’re gonna laugh at it, they’re gonna think it’s the best thing ever. Would I take them to see “Stand Off”? Nah, I don’t think so. Not for them. I don’t think they’d understand the dialect, they might not understand that that is actually English that they’re speaking, though it’s in Irish.”
