#Quote
1I don't understand this whole Twitter, Facebook stuff. I don't get it. Make a phone call. Talk to somebody.
2Writing is such a singular and lonely occupation. And it's interesting; all of the work that you create is so singular.
3I wanted to leave home, and I didn't know where I was going or what I was going to do or what would happen. That's youth, though. Being fixated on things. I was fixated on being a writer.
4Monetary success is not success. Career success is not success. Life, someone that loves you, giving to others, doing something that makes you feel complete and full. That is success. And it isn't dependent on anyone else.
5You are only an actor if you absolutely love it and can not do anything else. Starving for your art is great in your 20s, but it's not so great at 35. It has to be absolute love. You can't worry about being a movie star or anything else. Just love. That's it.
