It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.
I'm really just looking for an excuse to get in shape, so if someone could send me a role for a superhero movie, I'll get in shape, then you can just give it to someone else.
There's no excuse to be bored. Sad, yes. Angry, yes. Depressed, yes. Crazy, yes. But there's no excuse for boredom, ever.
An excuse is worse and more terrible than a lie, for an excuse is a lie guarded.
Sometimes, life is unfair, and you have to suck it up and move on and not use it as an excuse.
The only man who is really free is the one who can turn down an invitation to dinner without giving an excuse.
I don't get high, but sometimes I wish I did. That way, when I messed up in life I would have an excuse. But right now there's no rehab for stupidity.
Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody expects of you. Never excuse yourself.
