I’ve started answering my phone by saying, “Absolutely not.”

Actually, the best parts are working in a world full of people and ideas. You’re an artist and you create every day.

Besides Betty and Barney Rubble? Lol ...

In the TV world, Drs. Elizabeth and Henry McCord from 'Madam Secretary.' Their relationship is mega-pressured, but they still make it work with humor, smarts, and verve.

In the book world, Rowdy and Bobbie from 'Feast For Thieves,' because he loves her poetry even though its hideous, and she loves him even though he misses most of life's subtleties.

In the movies, Wesley and Buttercup, because "that day she was amazed to discover when he was saying 'As you wish,' he was really saying, 'I love you.'" Hoooo-weee, that's sheer poetry, baby.

“By my twenty-second birthday, you know, I had killed eight men. Eight that I was certain of, eight that I could plainly count. That information was stuffed deep within my gut, and if anyone ever asked if I killed someone during the war, particularly if a child ever asked, I vowed I’d shake my head no, that information was never coming out."--SHIFTY'S WAR”
Marcus Brotherton, Shifty's War: The Authorized Biography of Sergeant Darrell "Shifty" Powers, the Legendary Sharpshooter from the Band of Brothers

“The liberty that the Band of Brothers fought for was not a freedom to do whatever we want whenever we want, but rather a freedom from tyranny, a freedom of self-determination, a freedom to make something of our lives.”
Marcus Brotherton, A Company of Heroes: Personal Memories about the Real Band of Brothers and the Legacy They Left Us

“I came to see soldiers as men willing to lay down their lives for the sake of others. They fight for themselves and the generation under immediate attack, but certainly they fight for the futures of free peoples. Decades beyond World War II, I am one who benefited. That I can vote in presidential elections and not bend my knee to Hirohito’s grandson is testament to the enduring work of the veterans of World War II. That I can write books for a living instead of sweating in a Third Reich factory is a product of Allied triumph.”
