Wise Acting Words

"We have two ears and only one mouth. So we should try to listen twice as much as we talk."
From the 2000 film, Company Man

"In China, we don't consider someone truly beautiful until we have known them for a long time, and we know what's underneath the skin."
Actress Zhang Ziyi

From the 1961 film, Judgment at Nuremberg
