Top 10 most inspiring quotes by J. K. Simmons

- I never listened to the Grateful Dead as a teen; the only exposure I got was what came through the walls when my sister was listening to them.
- I’m not a fan of any genre but am a fan of movies that are intelligent and/or funny. That goes across all genres: a horror movie, a zombie movie, alien invaders, chick flick, or raunchy comedy. If it’s well done, I’m a fan.
- In my work I try to get things right, to do it well, and if there are specific skills involved – like in a case conducting or playing the piano, or in this film I have coming up where I play a character who is German – I’m very meticulous about learning accents and dialects and those kinds of things. That’s probably the closest I come to being a perfectionist.
- The best compliment I ever got from the public or producers or directors is that I just totally blend in and become the character and they don’t notice me and that the play happens or the movie happens or the TV show happens.

- There are no two words in the English language more harmful than good job.
- I actually have a degree in music and was aware that music was a tool used in therapy. I didn’t realize how far it had come since I was in college in the mid-seventies.
- And if I may, call your mom, everybody. I’ve told this [to], like, a billion people, or so. Call your mom, call your dad. If you’re lucky enough to have a parent or two alive on this planet, call ’em. Don’t text. Don’t email. Call them on the phone. Tell ’em you love ’em, and thank them, and listen to them for as long as they want to talk to you. Thank you. Thank you, Mom and Dad.
