"We take so many of our freedoms for granted nowadays - I can travel where I like, I can have a baby when I like, I can do any job I want - but I do think chivalry has been lost a little bit."
"It is better to travel well than to arrive."Dan Stevens on Buddha
"Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends."Dan Stevens on Maya Angelou
"One travels more usefully when alone, because he reflects more."Dan Stevens on Thomas Jefferson
"Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not."Dan Stevens on Ralph Waldo Emerson
"The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page."Dan Stevens on Saint Augustine
"All my early school reports from the age of 5 were 'Daniel must learn not to distract others.'"
"At the age of 11 I was about 6 ft. tall and my voice had completely broken. That caused problems. I was this gangly, spotty, very unattractive kid. I wasn't cool and I wasn't a nerd. I didn't even want to fit in with anyone."
"I never quite toed the line. I was a bit disruptive. All my early school reports from the age of 5 were 'Daniel must learn not to distract others.' And now, that's what I do for a living."
"Theatre, when it is at its best, takes a lot of beating - the live experience and the shared collective experience of live storytelling is really special when it is good. Particularly here in New York because the audiences are amazing, very vocal and very engaged, and that makes theatre very exciting."
"Every night, half an hour before curtain up, the bells of St. Malachy's, the Actors' Chapel on New York's 49th Street, peal the tune of 'There's No Business Like Show Business.' If you walk the streets of the theatre district before a show and see the vast, enthusiastic lines it sounds like a calling: there is certainly no place like Broadway."
