John Stamos quotes: Uncle Jesse schools us.

“Working with really good people, you know, really smart people gives you more confidence.”

“It’s what you put out that you get back.”

“Justification is a fickle thing. It’s always changing to fit our perception of what we wished would have happened.”

“Compassion and love will always conquer hate.”

“You can’t stop loving or wanting to love because when it’s right, it’s the best thing in the world. When you’re in a relationship and it’s good, even if nothing else in your life is right, you feel like your whole world is complete.”

“I got on General Hospital. And the story there is, I was working in Hollywood during the week, but my dad wouldn’t let me quit the restaurant. To my dad, it was about discipline and not knowing how long the acting would last. We didn’t realize how big General Hospital was. So I would still go to work on Sundays and kids were coming to the restaurant for autographs and pictures. And I’m flipping burgers, working the counter, wearing an apron. And I eventually said, ‘Dad, I gotta quit. I’m a teen idol.'”

“Because of my dad and the discipline he had toward his work, I learned to be a pro and arrive early and know my lines and hit my marks. I’ll never forget my dad saying, ‘When you go to work, don’t forget to treat the janitor the same way you treat the producer.'”

Grease is one of my favorite movies, and I had John Travolta sign a picture after I told him he was my inspiration for becoming an actor. So he wrote, ‘I’m proud to be your inspiration.'”

“I like to sing with people, whether they’re good or not.”

“I think I got turned onto The Beach Boys for the first time with the Endless Summer album in 1974. The power of that music still, to this day, bypasses the brain and goes straight to the heart. You don’t have to think about it; it’s something that you feel.”

“People look at me and go, ‘You must have it made. You have girls. You have a great life.’ It’s not true. I mean you pull the curtain away, and you see I’m just as insecure and neurotic and scared and vulnerable as anybody, you know.”

“I went sort of down a wrong path. My mother passed away (with whom I was extremely close) and that finally sent me into a tailspin. I lost myself. I lost my sense of discipline, which my dad taught me so well. More and more, I was just dipping into that dark place. Fortunately, things seem to be much better now. I don’t want to put that burden of being a poster boy for it, but I really feel great. I feel even… really happy.”

“Everybody has their own bottoms. I haven’t been through anything more than anyone else has. In fact I’ve had a beautifully charmed life. I think it was a fear of growing up.”

“You get a wake-up call. Life is too precious and it’s time to get back to what got me here in the first place: being a good person and taking care of myself, taking care of others and being healthy enough to love.”

“I still want to get out there and do something that’s challenging and original.”

“Every couple years, you know, these great things drop in my lap. It’s been fantastic.”
