“I’m just an ordinary guy. I don’t know all the answers. But I’m pretty certain of this…prejudice and what causes it has got to go! Talk it out, legislate it out, educate it out with books, newspapers, radio, films. But one way or another, it’s up to every one of us to assume responsibility for the welfare of our fellow man.” – Gregory Peck in 1948.
“I’m not a do-gooder. It embarrassed me to be classified as a humanitarian. I simply take part in activities that I believe in.” –Gregory Peck
“You have to dream, you have to have a vision, and you have to set a goal for yourself that might even scare you a little because sometimes that seems far beyond your reach. Then I think you have to develop a kind of resistance to rejection, and to the disappointments that are sure to come your way.” — Gregory Peck
The Gunfighter (1950)
