"[My relationships were] like I was in these movies where the script was only half-written. When I’d get to the end of this half-script, the other actors wanted me to ad lib. But I had never gotten the hang of that. That’s why these movies were always box-office failures. Six of them in the past twenty years. I always blew the lines." ~ from my horrible first novel "Learn How To Pretend." (unpublished)(obviously)

Quote of the Week

This reminds me of a quote I posted earlier by Thich Nhat Hanh -- I'll have to dig it up.
 

"People sometimes get in 

the habit of being loyal 

to a mistake." 


- Richard Russo, Mohawk


Oh, that would be this one:
“People have a hard time letting go of their suffering.
Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering
that is familiar.”
  –Thich Nhat Hanh
