"Say who you are. Really say it in your life and in your work. Tell someone out there who is lost, someone not yet born, someone who won’t be born for 500 years. Your writing will be a record of your time. It can’t help but be. But more importantly if you’re honest about who you are, you’ll help that person be less lonely in their world. Because that person will recognize him/herself in you. And that would give them hope.”
Last night I was listening to Charlie Kaufman’s BAFTA speech, and he cited an e.e. cummings quote that I then looked up today. [Pulls out journal] I have it here, if you want to get specific. “To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best night and day to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being could fight.” And I liked what Kaufman said afterward. He said, “The world needs you. It doesn’t need you at a party having read a book about how to appear smart at parties. These books exist and they’re tempting, but resist falling into that trap. The world needs you at the party starting real conversations, saying ‘I don’t know’ and being kind.”
