"The only thing of value I have in this life is my ability to tell a story, whether in print, orating, writing it down or having people acting it out. That’s why I’m always hoping society never collapses because the first ones to go will be entertainers."
Kevin Smith (via crywulf)

"I wonder if it’s possible to start a new relationship without hurting someone else. I wonder if it’s possible to have happiness without it being at someone else’s expense."

I’d just say to aspiring journalists or writers — do it now.
Don’t wait for permission to make something that’s interesting or amusing to you. Just do it now. Don’t wait. Find a story idea, start making it, give yourself a deadline, show it to people who’ll give you notes to make it better.
Don’t wait till you’re older, or in some better job than you have now. Don’t wait for anything. Don’t wait till some magical story idea drops into your lap. That’s not where ideas come from. Go looking for an idea and it’ll show up.
Begin now. Be a fucking soldier about it and be tough."
Ira Glass, one of the hardest-working (and successful) executives in today’s new media world, and host of “This American Life”, as told to Lifehacker (via eyeheartnewyork)
