This is so simple I’m ashamed to say it, but I’m sure it’s true. In fact, I would bet my life on it!

There’s no getting over that.” ~ Rachel Cohn

I’m sorry it’s such a lousy story.” ~ Richard Siken

  43. “What critics might call eclectic, and Eastern folks quirky, we Southerners call cussedness-and it’s the cornerstone of the American genius. As in: ‘There’s a right way, a wrong way, and my way.’ You want to see how that looks on the page, pick up any of Craig McDonald’s novels. He’s built him a nice little shack out there way off all the reg’lar roads, and he’s brewing some fine, heady stuff. Leave your money under the rock and come back in an hour.” ~ James Sallis
  44. “A joke is a joke, and people put too much meaning behind it. They react to it in the wrong way. I mean, you can boo or laugh, and that’s pretty much what you’re supposed to do with jokes. You’re not supposed to take it any further than that.” ~ Dave Attell

  51. “You have a certain objectivity, as a member of the audience, and you can come away maybe being provoked into a certain discourse or a certain arena of questioning, regarding how you would deal with things that your character has to deal with. Whereas when you’re doing a film, once you start asking, “What would I do?,” you’re getting the distance greater between yourself and the character, or you’re bringing the character to you, which I think is self-serving, in the wrong way. The idea is to bring yourself to the character.” ~ Colin Farrell

  53. “Poets are immersed in process, and I mean process not as an amorphous blur but as a discipline. The hard work of writing has taught me that in matters of the heart, such as writing, or faith, there is no right or wrong way to do it, but only the way of your life. Just paying attention will teach you what bears fruit and what doesn’t. But it will be necessary to revise–to doodle, scratch out, erase, even make a mess of things–in order to make it come out right.” ~ Kathleen Norris

  58. “I have definitely noticed that I care less about certain things. Other actors are like: “You can’t do that”, or “You can’t do this. This will position you in the wrong way.” That’s not my thing. And obviously so, because you can see I don’t craft or cultivate my career.” ~ Ben Affleck
  59. “As human, we all have the same human potential, unless there is some sort of retarded brain function.
