Well done is better than well said.
After a storm comes a calm.
Do not weep do not wax indignant. Understand.
Either you run the day or the day runs you.
If you can dream it, you can do it.
The wise does at once what the fool does at last.
Know or listen to those who know.
Never complain and never explain.
By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.
If you think you can do it, you can.
I think I meant that, given the circumstances of my childhood, I had the illusion that it's easier to be alone. To have your relationships be casual and also to pose as a solitary person, because it was more romantic. You know, I was raised on the idea of the ramblin' man and the loner.
Throughout my whole life, as a performer, I've never played with a band. I've always played alone, so I was never required to stay in rhythm or anything. So it was a real different experience for me to start playing with a band. There were so many basic things for me to learn.
Talking about music is like dancing about architecture.
What is comedy? Comedy is the art of making people laugh without making them puke.
I believe entertainment can aspire to be art, and can become art, but if you set out to make art you're an idiot.
There's a lot of thought in art. People get to talk about important things. There's a lot of sex, you know, in art. There's a lot of naked women and men, and there's intrigue, there's fakery. It's a real microcosm of the larger world.
You want to be a bit compulsive in your art or craft or whatever you do.
I'm enamored with the art world. Anytime you look at anything that's considered artistic, there's a commercial world around it: the ballet, opera, any kind of music. It can't exist without it.
I've always believed that there are funny people everywhere, but they're just not comedians. In fact, some of my best comedic inspirations were not professional entertainers.
I've got to keep breathing. It'll be my worst business mistake if I don't.
