„Several times I'd have been killed if I hadn't been able to land like a cat.“

—  Buster Keaton American actor and filmmaker 1895 - 1966
Context: The funny thing about our act is that dad gets the worst of it, although I'm the one who apparently receives the bruises … the secret is in landing limp and breaking the fall with a foot or a hand. It's a knack. I started so young that landing right is second nature with me. Several times I'd have been killed if I hadn't been able to land like a cat. Imitators of our act don't last long, because they can't stand the treatment. Interview in The Detroit News (4 December 1914)
