“Storytelling is the most powerful way to put ideas into the world today.”
“Write every day, line by line, page by page, hour by hour. Do this despite fear. For above all else, beyond imagination and skill, what the world asks of you is courage, courage to risk rejection, ridicule and failure. As you follow the quest for stories told with meaning and beauty, study thoughtfully but write boldly. Then, like the hero of the fable, your dance will dazzle the world.”
“True character is revealed in the choices a human being makes under pressure – the greater the pressure, the deeper the revelation, the truer the choice to the character’s essential nature.”
“A fine work of art – music, dance, painting, story – has the power to silence the chatter in the mind and lift us to another place.”
“In a world of lies and liars, an honest work of art is always an act of social responsibility.”
