I first watched Al Pacino in the movie Scent of a Woman and I’ve always remembered his powerful speech at the end. Al Pacino remains one of the true legends in acting history.
Below are some great quotes from Al Pacino. Enjoy.

My weaknesses… I wish I could come up with something. I’d probably have the same pause if you asked me what my strengths are. Maybe they’re the same thing.
My first language was shy. It’s only by having been thrust into the limelight that I have learned to cope with my shyness.
