Paul Gross Quotes
Here are some of the best Paul Gross quotes.

I had it all flattened out into all of it being of critical importance. So I think I’d be better at it if I did it again’
‘Somewhere after long division, I stopped doing math. That cut off the sciences. I decided I probably should try acting.’
‘It has always struck me as being peculiar that we do so little with our military history, in particular with that war, although it would have been ferociously difficult to shoot before now – beyond our means and capacity to photograph.’
‘I met the Queen. It was the nicest thing. I can’t believe it.’
