FGP Celebrity Quote of the Week: Mandy ‘Inigo Montoya’ Patinkin Talks Faith, Prayer, and Israel

If these musings from Mandy Patinkin, aka Saul from Homeland and Inigo Montoya from The Princess Bride, aren’t FGP Celebrity Quote of the Week material, I honestly don’t know what is. From Esquire’s “What I Learned” feature:

  • “My sense of religion is Einstein’s sense of relativity. I don’t believe in God. I believe that energy never dies. So the possibility exists that you might be breathing in some other form of Moses or Buddha or Muhammad or Bobby Kennedy or Roosevelt or Martin Luther King or Jesus. Hey, it’s possible!”
  • “In my prayers every day,which are a combination of Hebrew prayers and Shakespeare and Sondheim lyrics and things people have said to me that I’ve written down and shoved in my pocket, I also say the name of every person I’ve ever known who’s passed on. Because it’s my way of making sure they know that they’re around.”
  • “The thing I learned the most from my father is Don’t wait for tomorrow. Don’t say you’re gonna do something “when the kids grow up.” Don’t say, “I’m going to go to Israel once you guys are out of school.” Because he got pancreatic cancer at fifty-two, and he never did any of it. The gift he gave me was a residue of his death. Don’t ever wait to satisfy an idea or a hope or a dream.

Love that dude. I mean, just watch this video:
