✨ Marlon Brando Quotes:
"The more sensitive you are, the more likely you are to be brutalised, develop scabs and never evolve. Never allow yourself to feel anything because you always feel too much."
"If you're successful, acting is about as soft a job as anybody could ever wish for. But if you're unsuccessful, it's worse than having a skin disease."
"I don't want to spread the peanut butter of my personality on the mouldy bread of the commercial press."
