Here are some honest Robert Redford quotes

Robert Redford on his exploration of life.

When I was young, I said to myself, "You've got to make the most of your life." It's all about taking risks. Push yourself to do as much exploration as possible. Find yourself. Because sometimes we think we've found ourselves, but it's only part of ourselves we've found. We haven't pushed ourselves far out there where we make mistakes and things don't work out, but at least we've discovered something. I felt that's what my life had to be.

On being quiet.

I think "quiet" sometimes is a greater power than noise. It can harbor and reveal feelings that can't be expressed.

On failure.

Sometimes the failures can be exciting and fun. It's just a step on the road, it's not the end of something.

On mistakes.

I guess some mistakes you never stop paying for.

On problems.

Problems can become opportunities when the right people come together.

On truth.

What is it with you people?  You think not getting caught in a lie is the same thing as telling the truth?

On storytelling.

Storytellers broaden our minds: engage, provoke, inspire, and ultimately, connect us.

On his experience in Paris.

Between 18 and 19 years old [in the 1950s] I came to Paris. I studied art. And that experience really did change my life. I was living hand to mouth. I walked everywhere. I thought, this city is incredible but you really have to experience it by walking it.

On sadness in life.

Part of me is drawn to the nature of sadness because I think life is sad, and sadness is not something that should be avoided or denied. It's a fact of life, like contradictions are.

On change.

You’re never going to be the same person you are right now.

On regrets.

I have no regrets because I've done everything I could to the best of my ability.

On the power of art.

The world around us is in a sea change, and I think the glory of art is that it cannot only survive change, but it can also lead it.

The most important thing in a script.

Lastly get emotionally connected to your story so you can deliver it, you know, if you can't deliver the emotions to your script there's no point to your story. Story is the key.

On sports.

Sport is a wonderful metaphor for life. Of all the sports that I played - skiing, baseball, fishing - there is no greater example than golf because you're playing against yourself and nature.

On success.

Success is a tricky mistress. It's nice to have but it's a tricky thing to embrace.
