Being known as a writer did change the relationships I had with directors. The rap on actors is that they always want to inflate their parts. But when directors know you write screenplays and have a different view of things, you really get invited into the huddle in a much fuller way. And those collaborations end in friendships.
Wealth today has been created by a world view dominated by fast-moving networks, open information, bottom-up entrepreneurialism.
Nothing would more contribute to make a man wise than to have always an enemy in his view.
