Steve Burns Quotes and Sayings

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

Well, my aspirations certainly were not to be in a pre-school show.
I mean, it's certainly nothing that I considered;
it's nothing I ever thought anyone would ever let me do.
- Steve Burns

The idea of the show is that it's active and that children
will become involved and watch the show,
but also participate in the show.
And I didn't know if that would work.
- Steve Burns

And I think that if I were a for real celebrity that
was recognizable everywhere,
I'd just crawl under a rock and you know,
have someone run over the rock with a car,
or something.
- Steve Burns

I knew early on after the first couple episodes were
fully scored and animated that we had a real quality show here.
But I always questioned whether or not it would work.
- Steve Burns

- Steve Burns

I'm not supposed to talk about the snail.
The snail is, well, congratulations to whoever noticed it.

and it's there three times in every episode.
- Steve Burns

It's definitely the highest rated pre-school show on Cable.
It's difficult to mix markets that way in terms of ratings.
It's hard to tell, you know, where channel 12,
or Public Television, is.

We go through, I think, six different drafts of each script.
And then my shooting it is roughly, you know,
fifteen percent of the total work that gets done on a show.
Then it's all post-production animation after that.
- Steve Burns

I mean, that's another big surprise of the show,
is that I see sixteen year old people who recognize me and they're honest,
for-real fans of the show.
And it goes down to nine months.
I mean, I've heard of nine month to year-old children
who are watching the show.
- Steve Burns

It's really hard to say how long the show will last and will continue.
I hope it lasts for a very long time.
As long as kids watch it, anyway.
But beyond this, sure, I would love to be doing film.
I'd love to be doing more theater and perhaps even writing.
- Steve Burns

I always, always liked children...
I was very afraid of them before.
Because I never really grew up, I mean,
with a lot of little kids around.
Even though I am from a kind of Italian family,
I never really grew up with a lot of little kids around.
- Steve Burns

Holding-on does not have to be
a desperate teeth-gritting kind of holding-on.
Holding-on can be a joyful
"this is just the nature of Life,
so I may as well enjoy it"
kind of holding-on.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie PHOTO

If a man is called to be a street sweeper,
