Here’s my Golden Rule for a tarnished age: Be fair with others, but keep after them until they’re fair with you.
I found I wasn’t asking good enough questions because I assumed I knew something. I would box them into a corner with a badly formed question, and they didn’t know how to get out of it. Now, I let them take me through it step by step, and I listen.
I just kind of assumed that you do a movie and then you leave and you hop onto the next thing. I never thought that people are actually buddies.
I think that people always just assumed that I was a liberal because I came from Southeast Seattle.
If I talk to a girl, it’s assumed that I’m having a scene with her. If I don’t, then it’s assumed that I’m gay.
That Hollywood thing, where everybody hugs and kisses everybody else – I always stiffen. It’s an assumed familiarity. It’s phony.
Anger and hatred lead to fear; compassion and concern for others allow us to develop self-confidence, which breeds trust and friendship.Dalai Lama
