Quote of the Day

Dee Dee Myers

If I do three interviews in a day, I can be exhausted, because the process of hearing everyone requires that I empty out myself. While I'm listening, my own judgments and prejudices certainly come up. But I know I won't get anything unless I get those things out of the way.
Anna Deavere Smith
If your work requires you to travel, you will understand that there's no vacation destination like home.
