Inspiring quotes by Jerry Lewis

Top 10 most inspiring quotes by Jerry Lewis

  • You can ask me anything you want. That doesn’t mean I’m going to answer you.
  • We’re leaving the House to people who either were born with a silver spoon in their mouth… or couldn’t get better jobs in the first place.
  • A woman doing comedy doesn’t offend me, but sets me back a bit. I, as a viewer, have trouble with it. I think of her as a producing machine that brings babies in the world.
  • The young man who’s had the Guggenheim fortune behind him all his life – he can hire all the authorities on the subject to teach him how to do a monologue, but he’s never going to have the right stuff to pull it off. If he doesn’t walk out onstage needing to walk out there, he doesn’t have a dream of doing well.
  • I tell young comics, ‘Do you want this badly enough? It’s there. But you have to go get it. And if you think I’m going to give you the key to the lock of that door, there is no key, there is no lock, and there is no door.’
  • If you’re an old pro, you know how well you’re doing when you’re doing it, and your inner government spanks you if you’re not doing well.
  • People think I’m against critics because they are negative to my work. That’s not what bothers me. What bothers me is they didn’t see the work. I have seen critics print stuff about stuff I cut out of the film before we ran it. So don’t tell me about critics.
  • I never got a formal education. So my intellect is my common sense. I don’t have anything else going for me. And my common sense opens the door to instinct.
  • When you’re doing a different kind of film, you have to bring a different kind of attitude; you have to bring a different kind of concentration.
  • I’m really not thick-skinned – my wife will tell you that I take sunsets personally – but I know that I’ve got the belly for whatever comes down the pike. I think it’s tenacity. You’ve been there before, and you just have to recall, ‘How did I handle that one?’
