“A man's alter ego is nothing more than his favorite image of himself.”
― Stan Redding, Catch Me If You Can: The True Story of a Real Fake
“It's not what a man has but what a man is that's important. This car is fine for me. It gets me around. I know who I am and what I am, and that's what counts, not what other people might think of me.”
― Frank W. Abagnale, Catch Me If You Can: The True Story of a Real Fake
"Sometimes it's easier livin' the lie" - Carl Hanratty, from Catch Me If You Can (movie)
Frank Abagnale, Jr.:
"Brenda, I don't want to lie to you anymore. All right? I'm not a doctor. I never went to medical school. I'm not a lawyer, or a Harvard graduate, or a Lutheran. Brenda, I ran away from home a year and a half ago when I was 16."
"Frank? Frank? You're not a Lutheran? "
