Vision Quote of the Day

Jeremy Irons

Award-winning Stage and Screen Actor

I don't think it's a bad thing, but I've always had a very strong sense of self. And whenever I'm in a situation where I'm wearing the same as 600 other people and doing the same thing as 600 other people, looking back, I always found ways to make myself different, whether it be having a red lining inside of my jacket, having red shoes, it hasn't changed. Having the only bicycle which could fold in half and be dropped from a parachute, having the only Macintosh, which was -- it was a raincoat in this country -- which was shiny and black and three-quarter length. Just various things, looking through my school days. Having the only farm nearby where I could go and smoke and drink beer on a weekend without anybody knowing.
