“May the Force be with you is charming but it’s not important. What’s important is that you become the Force – for yourself and perhaps for other people.” – Harrison Ford
“I wanted interesting challenges.” – Ford
“Work hard and figure out how to be useful and don’t try to imitate anybody else’s success. Figure out how to do it for yourself with yourself.” – Ford
“I don’t mind doing interviews. I don’t mind answering thoughtful questions. But I’m not thrilled about answering questions like, ‘If you were being mugged, and you had a lightsaber in one pocket and a whip in the other, which would you use?” – Harrison Ford
“The focus and the concentration and the attention to detail that flying takes is a kind of meditation. I find it restful and engaging, and other things slip away.” – Harrison Ford
“On the first ‘Indiana Jones’ movie, I tore an ACL in one of my knees – can’t remember which knee. In the scene in which I was fighting the big German mechanic on an aeroplane called a flying wing, I was run over by the landing gear and injured my knee, but I can’t remember which one it was. Lots of bumps and injuries along the way.” – Harrison Ford
