List of William Shatner quotes.

And I enjoyed the celebrity and the creativity that was involved in Star Trek.


Spencer Tracy was a man who did very much what I do on a set, and that is, he comes down and he does his job, and then he goes back to his dressing room.


The good life is one that's artistically made.
