I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Joe Shuster from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

Before I ever put anything on paper,
Jerry and I would talk back and forth.
- Joe Shuster

I think initially we wanted to use the first letter of the character's name.
We thought S was perfect.
- Joe Shuster

Jerry reversed the usual formula of the superhero who goes to another planet.
He put the superhero in ordinary, familiar surroundings,
instead of the other way around, as was done in most science fiction.
That was the first time I can recall that it had ever been done.
- Joe Shuster

I had to produce a complete page - or two or three -
in one day.
I took a lot of pride in my work, and I hated to do a mediocre job.
Evidently, some of the writers enjoyed my work best
of all for that very reason.
- Joe Shuster

Not only that, but when I first met Joe,
to my intense delight, he showed me that he was a collector.
He was collecting some of the early Tarzan pages by Hal Foster,
and, later, early Flash Gordons; and I found that we
were both absolutely interested in the same type of thing.
- Joe Shuster

Jerry picked up the technique of visualizing the story as a movie scenario;
and whenever he gave me a script,
I would see it as a screenplay.
That was the technique that Jerry used,
and I just picked it up.
- Joe Shuster

Jerry often says that Slam Bradley was really the forerunner of Superman,
because we turned it out with no restrictions,
complete freedom to do what we wanted;
the only problem was that we had a deadline.
- Joe Shuster

In the beginning, we had a great deal of freedom,
and Jerry wrote completely out of his imagination -
very,
very freely.
We even had no editorial supervision to speak of,
because they were in such a rush to get the thing in before deadline.
But later on we were restricted.
- Joe Shuster

He was mostly leaping tall buildings in the beginning.
There were cases where he would leap off a tall building or swoop down,
and at that point he would look like he was flying,
I suppose.
It was just natural to draw him like that.
- Joe Shuster

In this drawing we just let our imagination run wild.
We visualized Superman toys, games, and a radio show -
that was before TV -
and Superman movies.
We even visualized Superman billboards.
And it's all come true.
- Joe Shuster

Jerry and I always felt that the character was enjoying himself.
He was having fun: he wasn't taking himself seriously.
It was always a lark for him, as you can see in my early drawings.
- Joe Shuster

people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget
how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou PHOTO

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed
by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
- widely misattributed to Mark Twain PHOTO

those who thought and never did,
and those who did and never thought.

people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget how you made them feel.

when did we grow so dull and brittle.

If a man is called to be a street sweeper,
he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted,
or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry.
He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts
of heaven and earth will pause to say,
here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.
- Martin Luther King, Jr. PHOTO

Where is the director? I want to see him.
- Soren Kierkegaard

is not the person I am today.
That person did the very best they could,
given the knowledge, emotions, and prior experience
they had to draw upon at the time.

I honor you, Hero, for you do not play to the crowd.
You play to your own soul.
An audience of one fills the house with its appreciation and applause.
Others follow you, and may attempt to emulate you,
but that is not why you are a hero.
Fame may smile upon you, or it may not.
The world may cheer your name, or you may be the unknown warrior
who rescued comrades in battle,
or taught a young girl how to shed tears of joy.
Whatever you did, you did not do for fame.
If you had, you would not be a Hero.
You are a Hero for your bold courageous inspired action.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Well, it seems to me that the best relationships -
the ones that last -
are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship.
You know, one day you look at the person
and you see something more than you did the night before.
Like a switch has been flicked somewhere.
And the person who was just a friend is...
suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with.
- Dana Scully

If you aren't playing well, the game isn't as much fun.
When that happens I tell myself just to go out and
play as I did when I was a kid.

tired of doing the hard work you already did.

I never did.

not his body only, but his imperfectly mingled spirit.
This is his grief. Let him turn which way he will,
it falls opposite to the sun;
short at noon, long at eve. Did you never see it?

If a friend of mine gave a feast, and did not invite me to it,
I should not mind a bit.
but if a friend of mine had a sorrow
and refused to allow me to share it,
I should feel it most bitterly.
If he shut the doors of the house of mourning against me,
I would move back again and again and beg to be admitted
so that I might share in what I was entitled to share.
If he thought me unworthy, unfit to weep with him,
I should feel it as the most poignant humiliation.
- Oscar Wilde

They did not want public office.

which was work in an office.
