Quotes by Tom Hanks:
Truth is, I’ll never know all there is to know about you just as you will never know all there is to know about me. Humans are by nature too complicated to be understood fully. So, we can choose either to approach our fellow human beings with suspicion or to approach them with an open mind, a dash of optimism and a great deal of candour.
I love what I do for a living, it’s the greatest job in the world, but you have to survive an awful lot of attention that you don’t truly deserve and you have to live up to your professional responsibilities and I’m always trying to balance that with what is really important.
E-mail is far more convenient than the telephone, as far as I’m concerned. I would throw my phone away if I could get away with it.
I’m not interested in doing something edgy with a capital E just so everyone knows, ‘Oh, OK, now he’s showing us he can do edgy.’
Human beings do things for a reason, even if sometimes it’s the wrong reason.
It’s just as hard… staying happily married as it is doing movies.
If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. It’s the hard that makes it great.
