- Page 3
Living most of the time in a world created mostly in one's head, does not make for an easy passage in the real world.

The same people who never did their homework in high school are still doing that to this very day out in the real world.
I don't feel there's a difference between the real world and the fairy-tale world. They contain psychological truths and, I guess, projections of what the culture that tells them thinks about various things: men, women, aging, dying - the most basic aspects of being human.
The telling of stories creates the real world.
It's a hard thing for me to wrap my mind around the C word: celebrity. Rock stars are celebrities because they're larger than life. As an actor, you have to play the everyman and the everygirl.

My whole thing is to entertain, make people laugh and to forget about the real world for awhile.
Spiritual people don't float around all day on clouds of glory; they live in the real world and deal with real issues in real ways.
To be matter-of-fact about the world is to blunder into fantasy - and dull fantasy at that, as the real world is strange and wonderful.
Robert A. Heinlein
Often, in the real world, it's not the smart that get ahead but the bold.
Being offended is part of being in the real world.
