Harry Dean Stanton quotes :
I made it a point not to graduate. I thought that was a positive, independent kind of statement.Harry Dean Stanton
I'm tired of playing people who are complete washouts and bums. I don't mind waiting for the good ones to come along. It's like age. It's never bothered me. I've even forgot my birthday. Many times I've wondered if I should tell my real age, but now I think it's an honor, to be doing what I'm doing now at my age.Harry Dean Stanton
The void, the concept of nothingness, is terrifying to most people on the planet. And I get anxiety attacks myself. I know the fear of that void. You have to learn to die before you die. You give up, surrender to the void, to nothingness.Harry Dean Stanton
I just want to say, good night, sweet prince, may flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.Harry Dean Stanton
