Favorite Quotes from Matt Damon

“If you don’t solve water and sanitation, you will never solve poverty.”

“I know who I’m supposed to be with. I fell in love with a civilian, not an actress.”

“I’m different from Brad Pitt or Ben Affleck. I’m not the type of guy who walks into a room, and everything changes. I’m not average, but I’m the everyday guy in a lot of ways.”

“Fame is strange. It changes from one day to the next. One day, no one knows who you are, and the next day, you’re famous. However, the thing is that you know intellectually that nothing about you has changed from one day to the next. What was important to you yesterday remains the same today. However, everyone is looking at you through a different lens.”

Tips for success from Matt Damon

1.“You have to work hard. Nothing gets handed to you. But, I think that those struggles really do define you. When I see parents try to remove adversity from their kids’ lives, I think it’s a mistake. It’s something I always think about. You want your children to have a better life than you did. However, you can’t make it too easy for them either because then they can’t handle the world on their own.

2.“Don’t give up on your dream. No matter what your dream is, keep at it. There were so many times that I should have given up considering where I was, but I didn’t. I kept going and eventually broke through.”
