"So, what I guess I’m trying to answer or say is that I don’t - being inside my head is what I have to offer you, and so that’s what I do. And it isn’t - to me, when I relate to a piece of fiction or a novel or something, it isn’t that it makes me step outside of myself. Although sometimes, there are those kind of books. But, I mean, the things that I really relate to is when I read something that is articulate, something that I felt but haven’t been able to articulate. And I find that incredibly moving. And I find an incredible sense of community in that.  
And sometimes it’s over centuries, which is even more exciting to me. If I read something somebody wrote 300 years ago, and it’s me, you know, what I’m going through now in my head - I mean, it sends chills down my spine. And I feel like that’s what I want to be able to offer, that if I offer myself, that there’s a chance that somebody else will feel connected because they felt that. And even if the story is sad, you can be connected in your sadness and the sadness of being a human being.”
—Charlie Kaufman

East of Eden (1955) dir. Elia Kazan

…it’s awful not to be loved. It’s the worst thing in the world. Don’t ask me how I know that. I just know it. It makes you mean and violent and cruel. And that’s the way Cal has always felt, all his life. I know you didn’t mean it to be that way, but it’s true. You never gave him your love. You never asked him for his. You never asked him for one thing.

“For me, acting is torturous, and it’s torturous because you know it’s a beautiful thing. I was young once, and I said, That’s beautiful and I want that. Wanting it is easy, but trying to be great — well, that’s absolutely torturous.”

—Phillip Seymour Hoffman (New York Times Magazine 2008 Profile)

“Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.”

—Oscar Wilde (via observando)

"When I started doing comedy in New York, I was a page at Letterman and an intern at UCB, where I’d also watch the shows and take classes. It was my life. But my comedy sucked. Then my improv teacher said, ‘Go live life. Go fucking do something. Go to the zoo, go on a date, do anything.’ I needed to hear that." - Ben Schwartz (2014)
