Mark Wahlberg quotes talk about his life as a musician, followed by his life as an actor and about being a father and a producer. He says he has a newfound respect for women since he has become the father of two girls and thinks being a mother is the greatest job on earth. He is into producing films, something many other actors have done. Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington are just a few of such actors who have undertaken this avenue. Below are a number of Mark Wahlberg quotes to read.
“I work as hard as anybody will ever work and I like that. That’s why I’ve been successful and that is when I feel good about myself. If I do my damnedest and don’t succeed, I feel good about the effort."
“I don’t want to let my guard down and feel too comfortable. If you become complacent, you start feeling entitled. I’m ready to go dig ditches if I have to. Whatever I gotta do to provide for my family. Whatever I gotta do to make sure that I do the best possible job at whatever wonderful opportunities I’ve been handed."
“I’ve always wanted to be in the health and wellness business. I try to encourage people to live a healthy lifestyle."
“Producing suits me because I have a business mind and a business sensibility. I was a street hustler. I did whatever it took. I sold whatever I could sell. I’m a good organizer."
“I like to talk to people. I’ve got one assistant, one Blackberry. That’s my overhead. I don’t text that much or email. I like to sit down face-to-face and have a conversation with you. I’m old-fashioned."
“I work out Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday; take Thursday off; then I work out Friday and Saturday. So sometimes I’ll eat whatever I want on Thursday, like a big breakfast of pancakes and bacon and eggs and stuff. You can eat a big, hearty breakfast because you’re going to burn off most of it during the day anyway."
“For me, family always comes first; I would do anything to protect them."
“There’s nothing like seeing the smile on my kids’ faces. Laughing together. Playing. It’s the best."
“I did a lot of things that I regretted and I certainly paid for my mistakes. You have to go and ask for forgiveness and it wasn’t until I really started doing good and doing right, by other people as well as myself, that I really started to feel that guilt go away. So I don’t have a problem going to sleep at night."
“In my movies, I’m not trying to erase any old image of myself, really. And also I’m not trying to imitate anyone or follow in their footsteps, because I know, Burt Reynolds was just one of the people that told me this, I know how you can only last in this business if you got something special to offer, just by being yourself."
“Having two daughters changed my perspective on a lot of things, and I definitely have a newfound respect for women. And I think I finally became a good and real man when I had a daughter."
“The first thing I do when I start my day is, I get down on my hands and knees and give thanks to God. Whenever I go outside of my house, the first thing I do is stop at the church"
“There aren’t really many compliments flying around with me and my friends. It’s a lot of tough love. But you know, that love is there, and if you need to have a serious conversation, you just gotta wait for the right time to do it."
“I pray to be a good servant to God, a father, a husband, a son, a friend, a brother, an uncle, a good neighbor, a good leader to those who look up to me, a good follower to those who are serving God and doing the right thing."
“When I was a rapper, the groupies didn’t have to try too hard with me. Just show up at the hotel."
