"I'm a supporter of gay rights. And not a closet supporter either. From the time I was a kid, I have never been able to understand attacks upon the gay community. There are so many qualities that make up a human being ... by the time I get through with all the things I really admire about people, what they do with their private parts is probably so low on the list that it is irrelevant." - Paul Newman

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” -Nelson Mandela

"I had trouble sleeping the whole time I was doing 12 Years a Slave, but that night, I got even less sleep. But it occurred to me while I was weeping in the night that my discomfort was temporary and Patsy’s wasn’t and it still makes me cry.
