Favorite Quotes from Nicolas Cage

“One of the things that’s interesting to me is I find things like caffeine and stunts actually relax me. When they’re putting a bit of gel on my arm and lighting me on fire, or when I’m about to go into a high-speed car chase or rev a motorcycle up pretty fast, I find everything else around me slows down.” – Nicolas Cage 

“Snakes are sometimes perceived as evil, but they are also perceived as medicine. If you look at an ambulance, there are two snakes on the side of the ambulance. The caduceus, or the staff of Hermes, there are the two snakes going up it, which means that the venom can also be healing.” – Nicolas Cage
