“The big job in one’s life, it seems to me, is finding out what is important to you and what isn’t important. It’s a major tragedy to race after things you neither want or need.   “Whatever makes for curiosity is good. Success, I believe, can’t be measured in terms of money or fame. You are successful only if you find yourself a full, productive life. The successful man is the one who stretches himself in his work, uses himself to the full of his capacities. Only a man like that has the right to be proud of himself.”

Montgomery Clift for Motion Picture magazine.
