David Duchovny Quotes
"Anxiety is part of creativity, the need to get something out, the need to be rid of something or to get in touch with something within." "Fame does lead to money, which I don't have a close relationship with. I'm the kind of guy who never sees the money -- it all goes somewhere else. I don't understand it, I don't like to deal with it. I have a fear of not having it, because I grew up without it." "For hundreds of years, that was the major form of entertainment: The grown-ups sat around and watched the kids play. Now they sit around and watch the television. The actors are the kids." "Graduate students are petrified. As an undergraduate you say what's on your mind, you rap with the teacher.

A dream that only I believed in." "I do not think that Mulder trusts any one other than Scully. He s very solitary. She is the only one who takes him seriously. I don t know if they re in love.

You can't describe our relationship as 'like' or 'dislike'. We've been thrown together, two people who don't know each other and forced to spend more time together than married people do." "I don't think I'd ever be cruel to an animal." "I feel I have to work hard to nurture whatever talent I have as an actor. I feel like it's not natural to me. So I don't take it for granted ... What I think is my natural ability - which is writing - I think I totally take that for granted." "I lost my virginity when I was 14. And I haven't been able to find it." "I love dogs. They live in the moment and don't care about anything except affection and food. They're loyal and happy. Humans are just too damn complicated." "I'm not a religious person. If I get close to religion it's in these moments when people faint and shudder and have orgasms with religious fervor - I don't think they're kidding. And I'm envious." "If the greatest artwork in life is the creation of who you are, then it's good to apprentice to a good therapist." "If you have Darwin, Christ and Nietzsche, they're all going to talk at once. You need somebody who listens." "It's not someone else's responsibility to honor my marriage. It's my responsibility." "My entire life has been an attempt to get back to the kind of feelings you have on a field. The sense of brotherhood, the esprit de corps, the focus -- there being no past or future, just the ball. As trite as it sounds, I was happiest playing ball." "My favorite bill is the one hundred." "No sex between Mulder and Scully! Only deep friendship. People thinking there's more than that between us amuses me. With Gillian, we've created the illusion of romance."

"On the one hand, people think they own kids; they feel that they have the right to tell the kids what to do. On the other hand, people envy kids. We'd like to be kids our whole lives. Kids get to do what they do. They live on their instincts." "One of the nice things about acting is that it allows you to open up to the other people within you."

They want you to tell about what you saw." "Sex is great until you die, but it's never as great as it was when you were a kid, when it was a mystery." "The great benefit of monogamy is that you get to trust the person you're with and she gets to trust you. And so much comes out of that. So whether or not men and women were meant to be monogamous -- and we can debate all the theories until we die -- I know I gain something great from it." "The key is to get to know people and trust them to be who they are. Instead, we trust people to be who we want them to be - and when they're not, we cry." "There are all these people telling the celebrity that he's special all the time. That's what people want, right?" "We really have to reconsider what it is that a public person gives up. Why does a public person give up all his or her rights to privacy?" "When you have a child, it really frees your emotions, but it's so overwhelming you feel like going, "Ow, don't make me feel so much. I'm going to cry if you keep laughing." That kind of thing.." "Willie Mays was the best ever. When I was in college I once made a catch like the one Mays made over his head. Sometimes when I'm lying in bed at night I think about it. It still makes me warm." "Women's fashion is a subtle form of bondage. It's men's way of binding them. We put them in these tight, high-heeled shoes, we make them wear these tight clothes and we say they look sexy. But they're actually tied up." "You're raising a kid and you give it food and shelter and, most importantly, you give it the feeling that it's special. I think people react to celebrities like that -- I mean, they treat celebrities like children." "I love dogs. They live in the moment and don't care about anything except affection and food. They're loyal and happy. Humans are just too damn complicated."
