Freedom is a right ultimately defended by the sacrifice of America's servicemen and women.
There's a lot of people who want me to get out of acting and want me to run for governor. I think it's mostly movie critics.
(Talking about his Conan the Barbarian (1982) director): John Milius used to call himself the dog trainer. Guess who were the dogs?
(On refusing to grant clemency to condemned killer Stanley Tookie Williams) After studying the evidence, searching the history, listening to the arguments and wrestling with the profound consequences, I could find no justification for granting clemency. The facts do not justify overturning the jury's verdict, or the decisions of the courts in this case.
The biggest problem that we have is that California is being run now by special interests. All of the politicians are not anymore making the moves for the people, but for special interests and we have to stop that.
California will not wait for our federal government to take strong action on global warming. We won't wait for the federal government. We will move forward because we know it's the right thing to do. We will lead on this issue and we will get other western states involved. I think there's not great leadership from the federal government when it comes to protecting the environment.
I welcome and seek your ideas, but do not bring me small ideas; bring me big ideas to match our future.
Maria is the best reason to come home.
(during his campaign for California governor, about his history of "misbehavior") Where I did make mistakes, or maybe go overboard sometimes . . . I regret that. This is a different Arnold.
I told Warren if he mentions Prop. 13 one more time, he has to do 500 push-ups.
I was always interested in proportion and perfection. When I was 15 I took off my clothes and looked in the mirror. When I stared at myself naked, I realized that to be perfectly proportioned I would need 20-inch arms to match the rest of me.
The best activities for your health are pumping and humping.
(on Warren Beatty) There are some people who are close to him that say he is just starving for attention, and that's the way he gets attention. Other people said, "Look, he's not working and he just feels like he should maybe get involved in politics". Instead, I just think that maybe he is jealous that I did jump in. I find it silly, because I respect his work.
Bodybuilding is much like any other sport. To be successful, you must dedicate yourself 100% to your training, diet and mental approach.
Training gives us an outlet for suppressed energies created by stress and thus tones the spirit just as exercise conditions the body.
