“My dad always used to say that life is not a race to the far end. Basically, a way of, sort of like, you know, tortoise and hare type thing, it’s a marathon, not a sprint. I guess, his way of saying this but I use that a lot, when, you know, especially in this (film/entertainment) industry where there was (were!) years when things weren’t going as well and you know, you start to lose hope and you feel you need to sort of remind yourself of something that like if you back yourself, things will happen, you know so, that’s the one I probably use the most.” – Jamie Dornan, actor
