Quotes

List of Nathan Lane quotes.

I am not a sad clown. I am not a sad clown.


I fell in love with the whole ritual. The lights going down, the curtain going up, telling a story to a large group of people in the dark. It was one of those moments where you think, 'I can do that.' You're in control on stage. And I love telling the whole story in one fell swoop. With movies, you never think, 'I nailed it.' In theater you get to go back and do it again, which to me is much more satisfying.


It's a cliche, but there really is no handbook about the celebrity thing; you have to figure it out as you go along.
