I didn't plan to be a politician. The founder of our country, David Ben-Gurion, called me from the kibbutz to serve in the underground. We were short of manpower, short of arms. I was 24 years old. I was supposed to serve my country for one or two years. I am 89 years old this year, and I keep going.
I don't think Hollywood per se is supposed to be taken seriously, otherwise, dear Lord, that would be frightening.
After I had my kids, I realized it's pretty much all about instinct - you have to do what's right for you. Everyone has an opinion, but it was all about what you do or don't do. I was so overloaded, so I let my children dictate the way things were supposed to go, and things fell into place.

There are no road signs to help navigate. And, in fact, no one has yet determined which side of the road we're supposed to be on.
In improv, the whole thing is that it is a relationship between the two people, as a back and forth. In standup, you don't really want to be listening to what somebody is saying; you want to project your jokes into their face. And that's really not a good instinct with a 'Daily Show' field piece, where it's supposed to be an interview.
I always kind of thought I want to be a good person, I want to be right to my fellow men and love them like we're supposed to.

Poker is just a hobby I'm passionate about. It's not supposed to bring glory.
C. S. Lewis
John F. Kennedy
