Hollywood Legend Dustin Hoffman Dishes On His Directorial Debut Quartet, Redefining Retirement And Living In The Present In The February/March Issue Of AARP The Magazine

On retiring:

"I think 'retirement' goes hand in hand with people who make a living by having a 'job.' I don't think we—the .00001 percent of the population who are so fortunate to love passionately what we do—consider it a 'job.'"

On his ideal age and growing older:

"I wouldn't trade now for anything."

"What we all want is to continually grow and expand. I've discovered that as the body becomes more limited, the soul expands."

On the differences between men and women:

"I think men are the weaker of the genders and live a more limited life than women. For whatever reasons, men run from intimacy. If you run from intimacy, you're running from what life can give you."

On mortality:

"My wife says I've been worrying about it since we started going out. But at a certain point your icons change. There's Manoel de Oliveira, who's still directing at 104. And I recently read about a 94-year-old guy who had just run a triathlon. They asked, 'Are you going to run anymore?' He says 'Oh yeah. I got to keep going till I get old."

"During filming I was saying to everybody in the cast, 'We're all in the same act together.' I always think it's a three-act play and we're in the second act—the third act being something that alters you, some infirmity or whatever. And somebody responded, 'Maybe it's a Shakespearean play with five acts.' I liked that. Maybe I've got three more acts."
