“I considered myself a Hollywood success, but there was something wrong with that success. I had everything, yet I had nothing. I had my books, my home, my companions, my music. But somehow, I was lonely.”Lew Ayres

“I never had a great talent, but I suppose I must have had something to hang around for 50 years. I don’t have any proclivity for acting. It was always difficult for me to learn my lines, which is something that should come easily to any actor.” – Lew Ayres

“I’ve always tried to make characters real and vulnerable. How I do this I’d be hard-pressed to say, but when you do achieve it, when you are totally credible, the audience can forget itself and live through you on the screen. An audience needs to forget itself, if only for a little while.”Lew Ayres
