Harrison Ford (b. July 13, 1942) is an American actor and film producer. At one point, four of the top six box-office hits of all time included one of his roles. Seven of his films have been inducted into the National Film Registry: American Graffiti (1973), The Conversation (1974), Star Wars (1977), Apocalypse Now, The Empire Strikes Back (1980), Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) and Blade Runner.

It's not the years, it's the mileage.

We all have big changes in our lives that are more or less a second chance.

You know you're getting old when all the names in your black book have M. D. after them.

You may get real tired watching me, but I'm not going to quit.

I think the reason I'm still here is that I was never enough in fashion that I had to be replaced by something new.

Really, what are the options? Levi's or Wranglers. And you just pick one. It's one of those life choices.

Parenting is an impossible job at any age.

To me, success is choice and opportunity.

The third time you say a thing it sounds like a lie.

I think what a lot of action movies lose these days, especially the ones that deal with fantasy, is you stop caring at some point because you've lost human scale.

Certainly news has changed completely, and the morning shows are not really designed to bring you the news, except to tell you what happened overnight, and the rest of it is a kind of magazine mentality - a little bit of this, a little bit of that. It's harder to be an educated and informed citizen.

I am not the first man who wanted to make changes in his life at 60 and I won't be the last. It is just that others can do it with anonymity.


(July 13 is also the birthday of Kenneth Clark.)
