Ron Howard is a great mind, mind some of his quotes

On getting older.

There are creative benefits to getting older.

On future.

I don't look ahead to the future as a vast, endless one. I've begun to feel the calendar pages turning.

On keeping score.

We're all constantly keeping score. You can't help it. But trying to pit ourselves against other people in some measurable way is largely a waste of time.

The thing about being a director.

One of the great things about being a director as a life choice is that it can never be mastered. Every story is its own kind of expedition, with its own set of challenges.

On his dream.

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.

On humor.

Humor is unavoidable. It might not feel funny in the moment, but more often than not there's a light at the end of the tunnel.

Acting vs. directing.

If I had to choose between a great acting job and a good directing job, I'd choose the directing job.

The most important thing in storytelling.

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

On religions.

Every religion, in my opinion, has something to bring, and I think we all learn from everyone that there's no right, perfect way to look at something.

On sports.

Sports always works for us more allegorically or metaphorically and that's what's fantastic about why we love them. You demonstrate the limits to which a human being can go and they keep pushing the boundaries of that.

On life beyond our planet.

I think more and more scientists are becoming convinced that it's very likely that life forms of some kind exist all around the universe not so far from us.

Humans becoming a multi-planet species.

The sooner we become a multi-planet species, the safer the species is, and the stronger the guarantee that we're going to continue to evolve.

On Americans.

There is something inherently tough about Americans. They will not accept defeat.

On moving up.

When you're young and you're striving, it's all uphill, and it's easier to climb. Then, when you get and look around, you sort of say, 'Wow, the altitude's kinda thin up here!'

Being lucky.

I'm lucky in a lot of ways. And in my family life, my home life, is where I count myself the luckiest.

The hardest thing which he has experienced [sort of funny though].

The hardest thing which I've experienced is calling up my father, Rance Howard, who's a wonderful actor, and telling him I've had to cut him out of the movie, which I've had to do twice. That's a lump-in-the-throat phone call.
