List of Wallace Shawn quotes.

I sincerely believe that if Bush and Cheney recognized the full humanity of other people's mothers around the world, they wouldn't commit the crimes they commit.


I see myself as a citizen of the planet. Even as a child, I always found it mindless to root for your own team. I was puzzled by the fact that people said their own team was better than other teams simply because it was theirs.


I have been vain since birth. I expected other people to like what I did, although my vanity has definitely diminished over the years.
