John O. Brennan

My career is based primarily upon finding a balance with a director and their vision, and that means sublimating my own personal ego toward their material.
America is a living idea. It isn't only the tenets of its founding, but also the terms of its future. Every day, we make America. Seeking to preserve and enshrine one vision of this country from one period of its past robs it of what makes it magical: its infinite possibility for adjustment.
Charles M. Blow

Sophie B. Hawkins

Bernard L. Schwartz
