Quotes of Matthew McConaughey

“I believe in living in the present and making each day count. I don’t pay much attention to the past or the future.”

“Life’s barely long enough to get good at one thing. So be careful what you get good at.”

“The best advice comes from people who don’t give advice.”

“You want to be a writer? Start writing. You want to be a filmmaker? Start shooting stuff on your phone right now.”

“I’ve never been a jealous person, and I’ve never felt built up by someone else’s failure – that’s a cheap thrill.”

“Life’s not fair, it never was, it isn’t now, and it wouldn’t be. Do not fall into the trap, the entitlement trap, of feeling you’re a victim. You are not.”
