Samuel L. Lackson quotes

born December 21, 1948; American actor and film producer

People like the Ezekiel speech. I have to say that speech about three times a week to people,
just to prove that I still know it.
Samuel L. Jackson

There's a passage I got memorized. Ezekiel 25:17. "The path of the righteous man is beset on
all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the
name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness, for he
is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee
with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy My
brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon you." Now... I been
sayin' that shit for years. And if you ever heard it, that meant your ass. You'd be dead right
now. I never gave much thought to what it meant. I just thought it was a cold-blooded thing
to say to a motherfucker before I popped a cap in his ass. But I saw some shit this mornin'
made me think twice. See, now I'm thinking: maybe it means you're the evil man. And I'm the
righteous man. And Mr. 9mm here... he's the shepherd protecting my righteous ass in the
valley of darkness. Or it could mean you're the righteous man and I'm the shepherd and it's
the world that's evil and selfish. And I'd like that. But that shit ain't the truth. The truth is
you're the weak. And I'm the tyranny of evil men. But I'm tryin', Ringo. I'm tryin' real hard to
be the shepherd.
Samuel L. Jackson, Pulp Fiction

Yolanda, I thought you said you were gonna be cool. Now when you yell at me, it makes me
