Sometimes the book you're writing doesn't actually start until page 100, but you have to write those other 99 pages to know that.(less)
Lawrence Grobel Not having a boss to answer to. Being there as your children grow up. Not having to deal with traffic every day. Loving what you do.

After a book I wrote was accepted for publication, I received an eight-page questionnaire from the company’s publicist. She wanted more information about me than my doctor asks for. Who was the book’s primary audience? Who did I know in the media who might be interested in reviewing the book? Have I ever appeared on TV or radio? Have I ever done book signings, and if so, where?

“Нека ти кажа какво е анонимността за един актьор. За мен е много важна. Затова се дърпам толкова много от интервюта.Когато един път научиш лични неща за един актьор, започваш да разгадаваш работата му, докато я наблюдаваш.
... Дори когато ходя на театър, у мен има желание да не отивам зад кулисите.Просто защото искам да запазя в съзнанието си само видяното. Не искам да разбивам илюзията.”
Lawrence Grobel, Al Pacino

“Ако ти е писано да ходиш по опъната жица, това и правиш. Няма да си нарисуваш линия върху пода я. Рано или късно се качваш там горе, на високото.”
Lawrence Grobel, Al Pacino

“So I can only conclude that American democracy inherently does not want good leadership. We always passed over the very great men we had like Daniel Webster, John Calhoun, Henry Clay, John Fremont, and the people after the Civil War like Carl Shurz. We pass them up because we don’t want first-class men in that position, we want somebody who is a stupid bum like us. We’re afraid of good leadership until a time of crisis,”
Lawrence Grobel, Conversations with Michener
