All experience helps when you write.
I think enthusiasm is the answer to passionate writing.
The man who has everything figured out is probably a fool.
It's always such a joy that you wake up in the morning and there's work to do.
In no instance is there to be a musical or opera of Inherit the Wind because it doesn't sing. It's an intellectual play.
The whole point of writing is to have something in your gut or in your soul or in your mind that's burning to be written.
If you're going to make a musical, don't cartoon it from the play. Make it better than the play. Have a reason for making it sing.
A neurotic is a man who builds a castle in the air. A psychotic is the man who lives in it. A psychiatrist is the man who collects the rent.
You must not demand the failure of your peers, because the more good things that are around in film, in television, in theater - why the better it is for all of us.
