“It’s like you saying, “You know I like making crafted furniture, but I live on an oil rig to make oil.” The furniture you make doesn’t matter. You’re on the oil rig, and the oil rig is Los Angeles, and Los Angeles is in my opinion as horrible to live on as an oil rig, and you’re not here for the scenery, you’re here to learn the business.”—Robert Ben Garant, on writing passion project-type movies in Hollywood (The Nerdist podcast, 8/23/11)
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”—
— Steve Jobs, Commencement address at Stanford University, June 12, 2005
RIP Steve Jobs. You were an inspiration to us all.
