What are your favorite quotes from Jim Henson? They can be from him as Kermit, Rowlf, Dr. Teeth, Cantus, Convincing John, Ernie, or any character he performed! And of course, they can be direct quotes from Mr. Henson himself. My faves are... "We will not create anybody with Miss Piggy's kind of appeal-nobody should try." ~Jim Henson "My hope is to leave the world a little better for my having been there." ~Jim Henson "Listening is the first step and the last step." ~Cantus Fraggle "I know I drive some people crazy with what seems like ridiculous optimism, but it has always worked for me." ~Jim Henson "It's a wonderful life and I love it." ~Jim Henson "The personalities of the Muppet characters are really quite innocent and everyone, in some way or another, seems to be able to relate to this innocence." ~Jim Henson "No time is wasted time." ~Cantus Fraggle That's all I can think of right now, but there are many more!
