John Goodman loves acting and feels lucky that he is able to do what he loves. He also loves writing and golfing. Talking about them in an interview with Scott Raab, he said, “I don't trust myself enough. When I write, I overwrite… Writing is probably the only hobby I have. But I wish I had another one. If I was just a little better at golf”. Indeed, he has been very free in his interviews, extensively talking on different subjects ranging from his early years to love for loaf. From his quotes, we also come across his views on several important topics, such as the power of laughter and love, importance of reading etc. Here are some of them.
