Raúl Juliá was born on March 9, 1940 in San Juan, Puerto Rico and was taken from us way too soon on October 24, 1994.
Suave, elegant, and incredibly versatile, Raúl Juliá was among the most critically respected stage and screen actors of his generation.
Raúl Juliá also loved to smoke cigars. Here are four of his famous cigar quotes:
“Why pay $100 on a therapy session when you can spend $25 on a cigar? Whatever it is will come back; so what, smoke another one.”
“Maybe it’s like becoming one with the cigar. You lose yourself in it; everything fades away: your worries, your problems, your thoughts. They fade into the smoke, and the cigar and you are at peace.”
“I even smoke in bed. Imagine smoking a cigar in bed, reading a book. Next to your bed, there’s a cigar table with a special cigar ashtray, and your wife is reading a book on how to save the environment.”
“A cigar is as good as memories that you have when you smoked it.”
