Redford on success

“Success has a dangerous side to it, something that I have been aware of my whole life,” said the Oscar-winning star.

“You don’t embrace it, so much as shadow-box with it.

In reaching for the money, you can lose yourself.

So I always pay attention to who we are, who we were and who we try to stay being.

And at the same time, to welcome success but use it wisely, rather than poorly.”
