"Being a good actor isn't easy. Being a man is even harder. I want to be both before I'm done."
I like to speculate about what James Dean would have done if he'd lived. I imagine him eventually moving on from acting to directing. Maybe he would have directed cinematic masterpieces. But then every so often, he would act again and put in amazing performances and remind everyone how good he's always been.
