“A man who limits his interests limits his life.”
Vincent Price

“What's important about an actor is his acting, not his life.”
Vincent Price

“There's something fascinating about seeing something you don't like at first but directly know you will love—in time. People are that way, all through life. You come against a personality, and it questions yours. You shy away but know there are gratifying secrets there, and the half-open door is often more exciting than the wide.”
Vincent Price, I Like What I Know: A Visual Autobiography
