Sean Connery — Born in the 30’s, into a family of blue collars, he instead took to a life of art once he turned 23. He is best known for his role as secret agent James Bond, taking on the famous role for a total of seven movies.
He is not only one of the most recognizable actors to play such a famous role, but also well known for his Scottish accent and the fire that comes with it. He has a lot to say, leaving the world with quite a plethora of quotes.
“Love may not make the world go round, but I must admit that it makes the right worthwhile.”
“Laughter kills fear, and without fear there can be no faith. For without fear of the devil, there is no need for God.”
“I was called Sean long before I was an actor. I had an Irish buddy when I was 12 named Seamus — pronounced Shay-mus. So, they nicknamed us Seamus and Shawn, and it stuck.”
“I am not an Englishman, I was never an Englishman, and I don’t ever want to be one. I am a Scotsman! I was a Scotsman and I will always be one.”
“I admit, I’m being paid well, but it’s no more than I deserve. After all, I’ve been screwed more times than a hooker.”
“There is nothing like a challenge to bring out the best in a man.”
“I have always hated that damn James Bond. I’d like to kill him.”
“I did smoke pot a few times, but nothing else. I would never inject. I’m too fond of the drink. I can go two weeks or more without it, but then I’m quite enthusiastic to get back to the taste again.”
“I like women. I don’t understand them, but I like them.”
“Perhaps I’m not a good actor, but I would be even worse at doing anything else.”
“Though my feet are tired, my heart is not.”
“The Irish seem to have more fire about them than the Scots.”
“To cultivate an English accent is already a departure from what you are.”
