John Astin QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
At a certain point he was very popular, from THE RAVEN. He was never fully appreciated, never made the money, and you know he was looked upon with admiration by some people, but also as an oddball. But that was his point.
Quotation of John Astin
Because of Poe's vision and his depth of understanding of life, his material is universal and doesn't get dated. Poe is trying to open our minds to the greatness of life, the richness of life, and the importance of realizing that we are all in this together. We are all a part of one great organism.
Quotation of John Astin
Clarity and understanding are important to me as an actor. If I can help clarify some role, even if it is spookily close to me, it is well worth it. And also, maybe, I have a sensitivity to it.
Quotation of John Astin
I figure I basically am a ghost. I think we all are.
Quotation of John Astin
I get into certain yoga positions at times, when I'm working out and for exercises. I use a little of it in some of my meditation, but I chant now and that sort of replaced it.
Quotation of John Astin
I got things like the lotus position long before anybody else did, or at least in the mainstream. But I had fun. I guess my legs are pretty flexible, so I used to get a kick out of doing things like that. I would get into a full lotus with my legs and then roll around.

I guess one of the reasons I'm doing the Poe piece is that I think Poe demonstrates that no matter how difficult things are, if you continue to move forward in life, you can eventually become victorious, even if it's later in life.

Quotation of John Astin
I think the bottom line is Poe's extraordinary talent was apparent to Griswold and others. I don't think that his work, the depth and the scope of it, was really recognized by the people of the time.
Quotation of John Astin
I think, and this is my personal opinion, that it was a Mozart-Salieri thing. Griswold was simply jealous of Poe.

If you do something and you really care and you want to convey something in a subtle way, there are people out there that are going to pick up on it.

It is important to me that what Poe has to say gets across to people. I want to give people the feeling that I get from all this. I think that we are succeeding. The feedback is very warm.
Quotation of John Astin
My background is basically scientific math. My Dad was a physicist, so I have it in my blood somewhere. Scientific method is very important to me. I think anything that contradicts it is probably not true.
Quotation of John Astin
My work is to reach people with ideas, hopes, dreams, encouragement, insight, and revelation. That's what an actor wants to do.
Quotation of John Astin
One life is worth the universe. Poe was able to go right into the very depth of life and to demonstrate this.
Quotation of John Astin
One of the great things about being recognized is that you receive this feedback from people. It is easy to see how sincere people are. It's nothing fake or jive. They're giving sincere appreciation. And it's not that easy to express.

Quotation of John Astin
The feedback that I get from my association with Gomez is heartwarming. It is very difficult for me to take anything but a positive view of the Gomez phenomenon.
Quotation of John Astin
The themes Poe used were universal and timeless. As long as the English language exists at all, we will be able to appreciate what he did. It will not age! It will not become dated!
Quotation of John Astin
There are things so deep and complex that only intuition can reach it in our stage of development as human beings. And to Poe... well, a great logician could be an enemy to him, what he called conventional world reason.
Quotation of John Astin
There is something good about the character of Gomez. I wouldn't trade the association with him for anything or any role that I might have missed.
Quotation of John Astin
There was one where Gomez was on a Trapeze hanging by the legs upside down. I remember how much the backs of my knees would hurt until I got used to it. It was hard.
Quotation of John Astin
United Artists wanted to do records with me. I had no idea, what a rare thing that was... to make an album. And they put a guy with me working on songs, and I got busy with films. I just kind of let it slide. Isn't that amazing?
Quotation of John Astin
We are running ourselves into a damaged earth. But I am optimistic. I believe that we can change; we must change. As a human race, we are very young and quite primitive. The sooner we learn the greatness of humanity the better off we will all be.
Quotation of John Astin
Why is the sky dark at night? Given an infinite number of stars, why isn't the whole sky lit up? Why are there great spaces and voids? Poe's answer to this is still valid, according to the scientists of today. Poe proposed a time and space continuum, fully a half a century before Einstein.
