Writing is like a contact sport, like football. You can get hurt, but you enjoy it.
He doesn't know the meaning of the word fear, but then again he doesn't know the meaning of most words.
I like big casts. The experience of working together, that human contact - those are my roots, professionally.
It's one thing to shoot yourself in the foot. Just don't reload the gun.
Let's make a deal with the Serbs. Neither history nor emotion in the Balkans will permit multinationalism. We have to give up on the illusion of the last eight years... Dayton isn't working. Nobody - except diplomats and petty officials - believes in a sovereign Bosnia and the Dayton accords.
A lot of my work comes from my life experiences.
We want to reinvent the phone. What's the killer app? The killer app is making calls! It's amazing how hard it is to make calls on most phones. We want to let you use contacts like never before - sync your iPhone with your PC or mac.

I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.
Ridicule is the tribute paid to the genius by the mediocrities.
Love consists in giving without getting in return; in giving what is not owed, what is not due the other. That's why true love is never based, as associations for utility or pleasure are, on a fair exchange.
