Paul Walker Quotes

1. I hope I'm in a position to make stuff that I really want to make as opposed to stuff that I just have to make for money reasons, or to sustain a certain marquee value.

2. Some people say that you should go to all the parties, to the nightclubs, the Viper Room, and make contacts, and I look at them and say: "You don't want to have contacts with those people." Look at what happened to River Phoenix (who died in 1993 of a drug overdose outside the Viper Room). If you get caught up in that, it ruins you. Hollywood is garbage.

3. I'm not the least bit polished, I come from a blue collar background and I never thought I could feel comfortable around the English.

4. I'm a dreamer. I've got this whole thing where I think I'm supposed to be a musician. I live by the seat of my pants, but I'd like to think that I'm also pretty sensible.

5. I'm into being a dad, that's where my focus is most of the time. I'm an actor that's my job, but it's not my life. I have a lot of other interests too.

6. I want to get married. I think about it a lot. But I also think about my cars, so maybe my priorities aren't exactly in line just yet.

7. You know, I'm a pretty mellow guy. I'm pretty easy-going. I see everyone's perspective.

8. I live by "Go big or go home." That's with everything. It's like either commit and go for it or don't do it at all. I apply that to everything. I apply that to relationships, I apply that to like sports, I apply that to everything. That's what I live by. That's how I like it.

9. Everyone has an opinion.

10. Life's too short. And the biggest curse is falling in love with somebody.

11. I remember when I first came around, the computer-generated stuff was pretty wicked. I was like, 'Wow!' but I feel like then for the longest time, we saw so much of it, after a while, you might as well just be watching an animated movie.

12. When I was younger, the pressure was just being cool. I never thought of myself as a cool guy. I always thought of myself as more of the goofy guy.

13. I've always wanted to race cars, ever since I was a young boy, as I think a lot of guys have.

24. I'm a Christian now. The things that drove me crazy growing up was how everyone works at fault-finding with different religions. The people I don't understand are atheists. I go surfing and snow boarding and I'm always around nature. I look at everything and think: "Who couldn't believe there's a God? Is all this a mistake?" It just blows me away.

25. My mom was always really healthy and cautious about her diet, so I'm not a big sugar guy.

26. Surfing soothes me, it's always been a kind of Zen experience for me. The ocean is so magnificent, peaceful, and awesome. The rest of the world disappears for me when I'm on a wave.

27. I was definitely ahead of my friends. I was French-kissing girls way before anybody else was.
