Vulnerability is important. You can’t let your skin get too thick.

Al Pacino

Al Pacino, one of the greatest actors to ever grace the stage and screen, is also one of a select few to win an Oscar, Emmy, and Tony, thus earning acting's triple crown. He has starred in timeless classics such as "The Godfather," "Scarface," and "Dog Day Afternoon," though achieving that level of renown didn't come without challenges along the way. With these words, spoken during a 2015 interview with "The Talks," he reminds us that it’s paramount to not close ourselves off from emotion or adversity. "You want to keep yourself open," said the actor. "You’re looking for a risk you can take, a challenge, the fact that you fall down and get up and go on."
