Michael B. Jordan Quotes.
My dreams are huge, man. I dream all day every day. Do I want to get into restaurants one day? Yeah! Do I want to get into hospitality and have my own hotels? Yeah, I do!

I encourage first time filmmakers to be ambitious and take chances and risks, because you never know where your career is going to go.
Acting I’ll do forever, but I want to produce and stuff as well.
I think it’s just easier for people to put you in a box or a lane because you look similar. I think that’s unfair for anybody in any situation.
You work on a show like ‘All My Children’ – we know what it is, but you’re still able to grow outside of it. It’s the perfect situation. I learned. I grew as an actor. I worked with professionals. I got paid.
