12 Stupendous Richard Chamberlain Quotes

Richard Chamberlain is an American stage and screen actor, having appeared in the television show ‘Dr. Kildare’ as a young teen idol. Since the 1990’s Chamberlain has made many appearances from television movies, on stage, and as a guest star. Here is a look at some of the most memorable Richard Chamberlain quotes.

“Giving someone or something our entire attention, with no preconceived ideas or agendas whatever, is the essence of love.”

“Handsome means many things to many people. If people consider me handsome, I feel flattered – and have my parents to thank for it. Realistically, it doesn’t hurt to be good-looking, especially in this business.”

“I actually feel sorry for people who have a lot of illusions in their head about what gay is. I mean, I know some gay people who are really wonderful people.”

“I am not a romantic leading man anymore so I don’t need to nurture that public image anymore. I can talk about it now because I’m not afraid anymore.”

“I consider myself a religious person. God is something very personal with me and I don’t flaunt religion in conversation with others.”

“I don’t go for carbon copies. Individualism is sacred!”

“I pattern my actions and life after what I want. No two people are alike. You might admire attributes in others, but use these only as a guide in improving yourself in your own unique way.”

“I suppose everyone tells little white lies. Quite often they’re necessary to make someone feel better or prevent feelings from being hurt. Whoppers? No, that’s dangerous and they’ll boomerang.”

“I’ve learned, I think, to be able to distinguish between the necessary and the unnecessary as far as my limited outside time is concerned. Saying ‘no’ politely is a necessity if one wants to lead any kind of stable life.”

“Nothing is secret once you tell anyone. If you want to keep it quiet – don’t tell a soul.”

“Over a long period of time, living as if you were someone else is no fun.”

“Personally, I wouldn’t advise a gay leading man-type actor to come out.”
