Viggo Mortensen Quotes

“Life is short and the older you get, the more you feel it. Indeed, the shorter it is.”

“One of the best pieces of advice I ever got was from a horse master. He told me to go slow to go fast. I think that applies to everything in life. We live as though there aren’t enough hours in the day but if we do each thing calmly and carefully we will get it done quicker and with much less stress.”
