"It's a wonderful thing working with young actors. I know a lot of people don't like working with children. I actually adore it, because you watch their imagination open up and you watch them start to learn this job that I've been doing for so long. They come with such a lack of cynicism."
"Imagination is more important than knowledge."Michelle Forbes on Albert Einstein
"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities."Michelle Forbes on Dr. Seuss
"Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions."Michelle Forbes on Albert Einstein
"I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation and is but a reflection of human frailty."Michelle Forbes on Albert Einstein
"Can you imagine what I would do if I could do all I can?"Michelle Forbes on Sun Tzu
"I thought a vegan diet would be too difficult, being on the road so much, but it's been far easier than I thought."
"A plant-based diet has actually simplified my life in so many ways. For breakfast, I try to get my first serving of fruits and nuts for fuel. I'm completely addicted to coconut water for the electrolytes and hydration."
"I had so many offers after 'True Blood' for things that were someone in the same vein, but nowhere near Alan Ball's vision. Or something that was over-the-top and fantastical. And I've always wanted to play the regular, working-class mom, and I've never really had the chance to do that."
"When I did 'Battlestar Galactica' it was the first time I really understood science fiction. That was a very political drama, but set in spaceships so people didn't really take it seriously. But some really fascinating things were explored in that."
