American actor Alfred James "Al" Pacino, born in 1940. Notorious for his performance in the godfather, Scarface and one of my favorites; The devils advocate. he grew up in the Bronx started drinking and smoking when he was 9. He (and his characters) had some nice quotes;
"All the power in the world can't change destiny and ironically real power can't be given, it must be taken."
"You're only as good as the chances you take."
"I asked god for a bike, but i know god doesn't work that way. So i stole a bike and asked for forgiveness."
"It's easy to fool the eye, but it's hard to fool the hearth."
"Vanity is my favorite sin."
"That's what a leader is about, sacrifice."
"Never let anyone know what you are thinking."
"I always tell the truth, even when i lie."
"All i have i this world is my balls, and my word, and I don't break them for no one, you understand?"
"Never hate your enemies. it effects your judgement."
