“Don't live down to expectations. Go out there and do something remarkable.”
Wendy Wasserstein

“The trick. . .is to find the balance between the bright colors of humor and the serious issues of identity, self-loathing, and the possibility for intimacy and love when it seems no longer possible or, sadder yet, no longer necessary.”
Wendy Wasserstein

“Anyone who is considered funny will tell you, sometimes without even your asking, that deep inside they are very serious, neurotic, introspective people.”
Wendy Wasserstein
