Dustin Hoffman quotes :
One thing about being successful is that I stopped being afraid of dying. Once you're a star you're dead already. You're embalmed.Dustin Hoffman
I mean, I don't think I'm alone when I look at the homeless person or the bum or the psychotic or the drunk or the drug addict or the criminal and see their baby pictures in my mind's eye. You don't think they were cute like every other baby?Dustin Hoffman
