scent of a woman

“As I came in here, I heard those words, “Cradle of Leadership”. Well, when the bough breaks, the cradle will fall. And it has fallen here. It has fallen. Makers of men, Creators of leaders. Be careful what kind of leaders you’re producing here. I don’t know if Charlie’s silence here today is right or wrong. I’m not a judge or jury, but I can tell you this: He won’t sell anybody out to buy his future! And that, my friends, is called integrity. That’s called courage. Now that’s the stuff leaders should be made of.”  - Al Pacino, in “Scent of a woman” (1992), playing the role of a blind Lieutenant Frank Slade granted him the academy award for best actor.

Favorite actor series | Al Pacino: [on whether or not acting is still challenging for him] “The challenge? It’s always a challenge of a sort. It’s a challenge to get up and go and leave your family and go out there in all different parts of the world and do a picture and try to make it come alive … You’re still challenged for that. I mean, it’s the same story. It’s just not changed. It seems to be the same thing it always was. It’s this effort. If you get excited about a thing then things are generally a little easier. If you get enthusiastic and you want to do something and you feel you are into something then things start to come. But usually to find the enthusiasm and the appetite, that’s the challenge.” - Al Pacino
