Christopher D'Olier Reeve, in arte Christopher Reeve , è stato un attore e regista statunitense.

Figlio dello scrittore Franklin D'Olier Reeve e della giornalista Barbara P. Lamb, diplomato alla Cornell University nel 1974, raggiunse la fama internazionale pochi anni dopo interpretando il personaggio di Superman, eroe dei fumetti e icona della cultura pop statunitense; il successo arrise ugualmente a Reeve con i sequel della serie sul popolare uomo d'acciaio: quattro film girati sulla figura del famoso supereroe nel corso degli anni ottanta. Sfruttò la sua fama per sostenere battaglie a favore della pace: nel 1987 si recò nel Cile di Pinochet per manifestare contro l'imprigionamento degli scrittori e intellettuali cileni.

Frasi Christopher Reeve

„I think we all have a little voice inside us that will guide us. It may be God, I don't know. But I think that if we shut out all the noise and clutter from our lives and listen to that voice, it will tell us the right thing to do.“

— Christopher Reeve
Context: It gives me a moral compass. I often refer to Abe Lincoln, who said, "When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. And that is my religion." I think we all have a little voice inside us that will guide us. It may be God, I don't know. But I think that if we shut out all the noise and clutter from our lives and listen to that voice, it will tell us the right thing to do. The Unitarian believes that God is good, and believes that God believes that man is good. Inherently. The Unitarian God is not a God of vengeance. And that is something I can appreciate. On joining the Unitarian Universalist Association, in an interview with Reader's Digest (October 2004) http://www.adherents.com/people/pr/Christopher_Reeve.html

„He stands on the sidelines until there is real trouble. He does not want to get involved unless it's absolutely necessary because he thinks people should learn to make their own decisions.“

— Christopher Reeve
Context: The key word for me on him is "inspiration." He is a leader by inspiration. He sets an example. It's quite important that people realize that I don't see him as a glad-handing show-off, a one-man vigilante force who rights every wrong. Basically, he's a pacifist, a man who comes along and says, 'What can I do to help?' He stands on the sidelines until there is real trouble. He does not want to get involved unless it's absolutely necessary because he thinks people should learn to make their own decisions. On the role of "Superman" in an interview with Gene Siskel (1978), quoted in the "Biography" at Chris Reeve Homepage http://www.chrisreevehomepage.com/biography.html

„Superman is nothing more than a popular retelling of the Christ story, or Greek mythology.“

— Christopher Reeve
Context: Superman is nothing more than a popular retelling of the Christ story, or Greek mythology. It's an archetype, watered down and made in vivid colors for twelve-year-old's mentality. It's pop mythology, which extends to the actor, then seeps over to a demand that that actor reflect the needs of the worshipers. The worship doesn't only go on in the temples — it goes on in the streets, and restaurants, in magazines. But, you know, I'm from New Jersey, I'm not from Olympus or Krypton, so back off 'cause I can't take the responsibility. Caught in the Act : New York Actors Face to Face (1986) by Don Shewey and Susan Shacter, p. 18

„We live in a time when the words impossible and unsolvable are no longer part of the scientific community's vocabulary.“

— Christopher Reeve
Context: We live in a time when the words impossible and unsolvable are no longer part of the scientific community's vocabulary. Each day we move closer to trials that will not just minimize the symptoms of disease and injury but eliminate them. Testimony http://www.chrisreevehomepage.com/testimony-hor-140499.html to a U.S House of Representatives subcommittee, on NIH funding for the year 2000 (14 April 1999)

„So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.“

„I think a hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles. They are the real heroes, and so are the families and friends who have stood by them.“

— Christopher Reeve
Context: When the first Superman movie came out, I gave dozens of interviews to promote it. The most frequent question was: What is a hero? My answer was that a hero is someone who commits a courageous action without considering the consequences. Now my definition is completely different. I think a hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles. They are the real heroes, and so are the families and friends who have stood by them. Still Me (1999); also quoted at the Christopher Reeve Foundation http://www.christopherreeve.org/site/c.geIMLPOpGjF/b.1097025/k.6FF5/Christopher_and_Dana_Reeve.htm

„What I do is based on powers we all have inside us; the ability to endure; the ability to love, to carry on, to make the best of what we have — and you don’t have to be a ‘Superman’ to do it.“
